Studio 2 Publishing has launched their Kickstarter campaign for Awaken, their new Dark Fantasy RPG. The game takes its inspiration from Slavic and Mediterranean folklore. Players’ characters are Vasalli, great beings of power who must defend humanity against the rest of the dangerous world.
The campaign is set to run another 29 days.
From the campaign:
We are proud to present Awaken, a tabletop roleplaying game set in a dark, war-ravaged fantasy world, heavily influenced by Slavic and Mediterranean folklore, where the forgotten mythologies have resurfaced as Vasalli, powerful humans gifted with abilities capable of changing the course of history.
Dark times have arrived for the denizens of the Alliance. Their trusted Colossi, guardians of the Great Cities, are slowly dying out. The monstrous Vargans, who once caused a war that nearly devastated the continent, still hide in the shadows of the underground. At the same time, strange nations from the North continue their incursions at a faster clip, all while the lords and leaders of the Alliance bicker over petty politics.
In such desperate times, the only possible torchbearers are the Vasalli, gifted people spoken of by the old mythologies. But can they bear the burden of being the protectors of humanity, or will they succumb to the darkness that delves in every heart?
Experience a story-driven game that emphasizes player interaction, immersive mood, and narration.
Play as Vasalli, powerful beings destined for greatness, and discover the secrets of your lineage—and your fate.
Enjoy the intuitive and light rules, which help you tell a story rather than burden you down.
