Archives of the Sky Storytelling Game Up On Kickstarter

Humanity was never meant to just stick to the Earth as our only planet of residence. For a civilization to survive, it needs to spread out among the stars. That's just what we've done, and countless stories have been told during the years since that began. But what story will yours be in Archives of the Sky? It's a new GM-less RPG that's up on Kickstarter now, set in a universe a million years in the future.

From the campaign:

A million years from now, humanity has spread across the galaxy and taken countless forms. Vast empires have come and gone like waves against an unimaginable shore.

But some strange voyagers chose to remain outside the churn of civilizations, pursuing a greater purpose. When a new force comes to the galaxy, will these eternal wanderers remain who they are—or, at long last, change?

Archives of the Sky is a tabletop storytelling game with an epic sci-fi backdrop and a focus on very human stories. This is a roleplaying game, but no gamemaster or advanced preparation is required. You and some friends will collaboratively create a great House, a group of interstellar wanderers with a set of inviolable core beliefs—and then, like any good storytellers, find a conflict that pits those beliefs against each other.

The core rules of the game are finished and available for you to preview now, but they need some help to really shine. With your support, I'll extend them in a full-color sourcebook chock full of examples, play aids, breathtaking art, and ideas you can mine to help your stories come alive.

The campaign's around 2/3 of the way to its goal with still 28 days to go.
