Dark Legends is a new fantasy RPG that’s up on Kickstarter and looking for funding. They’re not asking for a lot, so every little bit could send them over their goal.
From the campaign:
Dark Legends is your classic tabletop role-playing game, but with a few new twists.
First, Dark Legends does not have hit points. You soak up minor bumps and scratches with no need to track them. You also have three points of vigor for more major hits. After that, you take actual wounds, such as bleeding, concussions, missing teeth or eye, chopped off leg or even decapitation.
This dynamic leads to the second major difference with Dark Legends, which is that it plays as a very gritty and violent game. This is combined with a unique dark fantasy setting with a richly developed history and world setting.
To match this feel, your core attributes in the game spell out the acronym BRUTAL for Brawn, Reflexes, Unbreakable, Thought, Allure, and Luck.
