Shattered Tabletop Games is running a Kickstarter campaign for their new fantasy RPG called Shattered Dawn (apparently, the crack of dawn spread and the whole thing broke). The rules for the game have been written primarily with new players in mind. They’re as uncomplicated as possible in order to let you tell the story you want to tell, without having to go back and reference charts and graphs all the time.
From the campaign:
Hello! We are Shattered Tabletop Games, and we would love to share our new game: Shattered Dawn. We believe that our games unify and empower people through imaginative entertainment, and Shattered Dawn is no exception.
Shattered Dawn is a story driven game, where players may create and play their characters in an expansive fantasy world. Shattered Dawn is not like other games, the rules and gameplay have been carefully crafted to be simple, fast-paced and allow for new players, and veteran players, alike to fully enjoy the lore and narrative without having to constantly focus on rules.
This is a tabletop role-playing game that is designed to be easy for new people, but allows for increased complexity based on play style. The gameplay system challenges the traditional archetypes of character creation and party roles. Our classless system allows for complete customization of every aspect of your character and allows characters to learn new things at any point. Shattered Dawn’s advancement system challenges the meta of party dynamics. Rogues do not have to wield daggers, mages can wear full plate armor, and berserkers can unleash a fury of spells.
The campaign is up and running now. They’re about 1/10 of the way to their goal with still 28 days left on the clock.
