Shades of Vengeance Running Era: Lost Legend RPG Kickstarter

Shades of Vengeance has a new Era RPG Kickstarter campaign running. This time around, it's Era: Lost Legend. If you're a fan of Final Fantasy games (and I know that I am), then this is the RPG for you. Head on epic quests. Battle humongous monsters. Save the world for the last time (it's never the last time).

From the campaign:

There's a lot of information below, but here's a quick summary:

  •  Era: Lost Legend explores a unique world, heavily inspired by the Final Fantasy games. It's very much a love letter to games of that style! The game and universe were designed by veteran Ed Jowett (who has been a huge fan of the games from the minute he started playing them!).
  • It runs on the critically-acclaimed Era d10 Rule Set, a versatile, easy-to-learn system which has powered ten different games to date. It contains a number of unique rules to fit the setting and gameplay style, but follows the same paradigm as the other "Era Games".
  • In an innovative move, characters are one of two types: one a Corporeal, weapon-wielding creature and the other an Ethereal, magic-wielding creature. These two types must work together, meaning two characters inhabit one body in many cases.
  • The game has been playtested and run for a wide range of groups (including at conventions) since July 2017. It's received great feedback, along with a few notes for things that needed tweaking!
  •  Era: Lost Legend is intended to be accessible to all types of players. Our world features a wide variety of characters, including people of colour and disabled characters, all of which we are proud to say are playable in this game.
  • Our goal is to publish a ~300-page Core Rulebook, which includes a huge variety of character creations, detailed descriptions of locations within the world, campaigns, GM advice, rules, weapons options... everything you could possibly want!
  • We're also offering an ~80-page Players Guide, which is perfect for players to build and level their characters, along with providing the rules for reference.

The campaign's about 1/3 of the way to its goal with 29 days left to go.
