Shades of Vengeance has launched a Kickstarter campaign for a new item in their Era line. This time around, it's a horror RPG. Era: The Chosen covers a sprawling 100 years of history, all the way from human's first contact with the Anonassi all the way to the present day (such as it is). You play as a Chosen, someone who can see the Anonassi and the terrible plots they're planning. Will you be able to stop them in time?
About the campaign:
We all know the feeling. It’s the crawling sensation on the back of the neck, the insistent, niggling feeling that we’re being followed. It’s the feeling that there are eyes in the dark, watching. Waiting. In that moment, you know – just know – that there is a clawed hand reaching toward the back of your head. Sometimes we stay still and try to ignore the feeling. Sometimes we whirl around, but there’s nothing there. Then we laugh, pass it off as imagination, and go on with our lives. But… what if… what if there really was something there, but you just weren’t able to see it? Or, worse... perhaps you’re one of the people who can see… In this game, you will take the role of one of the Chosen, the small number of individuals who can see the Anonassi and the paths into the "Lost Lands" where they amass their forces. The game's timeline spans over 100 years, from the first recorded encounter with the Anonassi and the start of the war to drive them back into their dimension, through the industrial revolution and the development of new technologies and on to the modern era, where the war heats up once again... Different weapons and tactics are used by each side over the course of the war, giving a unique experience in each era.
The campaign is up and over its funding goal with still 31 days left to go.
