Soulbound: Dark Industrial Fantasy RPG Up On Kickstarter

Strange, mythic, and giant beasts roam the land. In order to hunt them down, people have taken up or created powerful and unique weapons, each imbued with special powers. That's the world you find yourself in in Soulbound, a new industrial fantasy RPG that's up on Kickstarter now.

From the campaign:

Soulbound is a lore heavy, rules lite tabletop roleplaying game about wielding unique and powerful weapons to slay mythic beasts. The game is set in a late bloomed industrial age impeded by giant fauna and corrupted demigods. As soulbound wielders it is your duty to slay these monsters and protect the good folk of Solum. Soulbound is being made in the same style as its contemporaries, games like Dungeons and Dragons, World of Darkness, and Call of Cthulhu. What sets the game apart from so many others of its kind are the soulbound weapons, also known as bonds, that are created in conjunction with the player's characters. As Thor had Mjolnir, as Arthur had Excalibur, Soulbound allows each player to begin the game with a magic weapon bound to their soul.

These weapons can be randomly generated by rolling dice or via our online program. With 3 different build types, 100 weapons, and 60 powers there exist countless combinations. These weapons gain new arcane powers and receive industrial upgrades to grow in strength alongside their character.

The campaign's around 1/4 of the way to their goal with 12 days left to go.
