Era: Lyres

Era: Lyres - Pocket Edition Up On Kickstarter

Man, there was this one time, I was fishing, see, out on the Mississippi river with my dad. We'd not had the best of days fishing, but as they say, "a bad day fishing is better than a good day at the office." Anyway, as we were about ready to head back to the dock for the day, I happened to notice my line moving in the water. Now, as I said, this was on the Mississippi and my line was just steadily heading its way upstream. It took a minute to realize what was going on. Well, I grabbed the rod, pulled back to set the hook and started reeling. I don't know what was on the other side of the line, but it was tough. Just as I was about to land whatever lunker I'd snagged on to, a whole horde of rampaging Visigoths burst onto the shoreline and we had to motor our way out of there!*
Yeah, it worked up until a point, anyway. Era: Lyres is a collective storytelling RPG where you and your other players try and tell a convincing story, with with GM playing the part of the crowd and giving you their reactions. The pocket edition for the game is up on Kickstarter now.

Era: Lyres Kickstarter from Shades of Vengeance Running Now

Shades of Vengeance has a Kickstarter campaign up and running for Era: Lyres, their new fantasy tabletop RPGs. Though this one's a touch different. You don't actually go out adventuring. Instead, your characters are safe (or, hopefully they're safe, depending on the story they tell) in the bar, talking about all the heroic things they've done. This is an RPG that makes the "big fish story" the center of attention. "I always like to keep my audiences riveted." (If you know the line, give yourself 15 internets for knowing good movies)

From the campaign:
