Time keeps on slippin’ into the future.
Shintiara is a planet on the edge. Both its host star as well as a nearby black hole push and pull on it with strange consequences. Time paradoxes are an everyday part of life, but that doesn’t always mean you’re used to that sort of thing. Suddenly, the past and the future meet together in one spot. Will you be able to guide the planet to its ultimate destiny? That’s the story behind Shintiara, a new RPG that’s up on Kickstarter.
In the game, players take on the role of the Recruited. Whatever forces control the universe have called you to help Shintiara, even as it draws ever-closer to the event horizon. Your action will have a huge impact on what happens to the planet. The setting is fantasy with heavy sci-fi elements brought in. Magic and technology work together as one in many cases. The system it uses is called Modern d100 and goes off a percentile system to see whether you accomplish your rolls or not.
The Kickstarter campaign is right around 50% funded with still 46 days to go.
