    Launching new PnP RPG on Kickstarter

    Hello All,

    I know this isn't the best site but I though there might be some nerds in Xtreme Systerms that might appreciate this type of thing. Take a look and back the project if you like it. New and better video coming soon when I learn how to video edit...

    My game Age Past has been in development for some time. I have just recently launched a Kickstarter to help me get my book finished. Please take the time to check it out. Also to promote the game I am offering a Beta Soft Launch so everyone can take a look and decide for themselves!

    To give you a premise, Age Past is a gameist fantasy RPG that employs an Archetype build system and a new rolling system. Players have about 140 powers to choose from and most powers can be taken 4 times. This means that no two characters are built the same ever. The powers can be chosen based on level and there are no perquisites so ou can take when you want when as long as you meet the level requirement. Each power has a cost balanced based on its usefulness so therefore characters are made balanced to each other. Factions, religion and a cadre of weapon combinations can be used. The game completely places the options and control in the hands of the player.

    Included are:
    - about 140 powers
    - about 150 spells
    - about 75 fully developed monsters
    - a complete and balanced crafting system
    - a DM screen, character sheets, printable maps, and initiative cards

    Age Past also employs a new rolling system that helps standardize the result you get. People in play testing really like it as they have a greater chance to get a range of expected results. Also new players seem to be able to take the Age Past faster than Pathfinder or similar d20 systems. The PDF below is free, download it and take a look. It is a full 300 page game not a 25 page shell or supplement and therefore will take a bit more reading to get into. The game was built to be extremely dynamic yet have much less number crunching. The design emphasis is on taking action not adding and determining stacking values. I hope you enjoy!
