Magpie Games, known for creating unique tabletop roleplaying experiences, has announced the release of its much-anticipated game, Defiant RPG. Described as an urban fantasy game, Defiant RPG presents a world of modern-day supernaturals who defy their apocalyptic destiny to protect humanity.
In Defiant RPG, player characters are nobles of the supernatural society, composed of fallen angels, demons, ancient gods, and dragons. These ‘Defiant blue-bloods’ use their powers to enforce strict rules that shield their cities – the only safe havens in a world teetering on the brink of the Apocalypse. Players rule over their territories, complete with their own luxurious holdings and devoted followers.
The comprehensive Defiant RPG rulebook includes:
- Complete game rules for an exciting dive into the world of Defiant
- An in-depth description of the captivating Defiant universe
- Two robust chapters designed to guide Game Masters in preparing and running the game
- A ready-to-play Province filled with dozens of NPCs, locations, and two Story Arcs
- And much more!
One of the highlights of Defiant RPG is its innovative ruleset. Instead of binary success or failure outcomes, the game features a wide range of results involving choices, obstacles, bonuses, unexpected benefits, and surprising turns of events. The game eschews traditional attributes and skills, instead using descriptive traits that players can creatively employ during gameplay.
Furthermore, Defiant RPG introduces Theme Questions, which allow players to influence the narrative based on their characters’ roles. For example, a “Gem” character can ask, “How am I the center of this event?” or the Guide might ask, “Who approaches me about my teachings?”.
Defiant RPG promises a fresh take on urban fantasy role-playing, offering an intriguing setting, complex characters, and innovative mechanics. Now available for purchase, players and game masters can begin their journey into the post-apocalyptic world of Defiant and explore the rebellious supernatural society that stands as humanity’s last line of defense.
