First Kings Dark Fantasy RPG Up On Kickstarter

First Kings takes you back to the glory of Ancient Rome. Well, maybe not necessarily the "glorious" parts of it, anyway. More like the much darker side of things. Best to stay in at night if you want to keep your head. The new RPG is up on Kickstarter now.

From the campaign:

First Kings is a pen&paper roleplaying game that features a pretty unique setting, based on a Dark Fantasy uchronia that casts its own particular lights and shadows on the history and the mythology that permeates the legend of the foundation of Rome

This new and highly immersive historical-fantasy RPG, with intense dark atmospheres, conceived by Matteo Sanfilippo, and designed & developed with Andrea Macchi and Max Castellani from Epic Party Games (previously on Kickstarter with Shattered Tower RPG), will throw you right in the middle of a raw, ancient Rome   ..not the rich and glorious Imperial Rome of the splendors that you are used to see in movies, videogames or history books, though, but a nebulous and more bare Rome, where the mist and the darkness beyond the walls frighten even the most courageous of men, where the very streets of the nascent citadel can become dangerous and deadly at nightfall, where the howls and the shrieking cries of the Horrids of the woods fill the nightmares of every Roman.

The campaign's around 1/3 of the way to its goal with 25 days left to go.
