BACKED. This game flew under my radar a few weeks or more ago, but then Brie Sheldon posted a link and the freaking gorgeous art and layout got me reading. I’ve since read more, watched Amit Moshe’s videos describing the game, and downloaded the free starter set…
…and I am totally freaking hooked. I’m not sure when I’ve been this psyched about a KS project. Maybe RuneQuest Classic.
The setup of the game is described as Fables meets Netflix’s Marvel shows, though I would also maybe throw in Buffy/Angel as well, if they were done as “street” and noir as the aforementioned Netflix. So, yeah, it’s urban fantasy superheroes, which is totally my jam.
The system is PbtA-derived, but instead of roll+stat it’s called “Roll+Tags”, where PCs have descriptive tags, and the more that apply to a given move, the more you add to your 2d6 roll. It’s PbtA-meets-Lady-Blackbird, with maybe some Fate thrown in there, too.
There’s also this whole Mythos/Logos thing, which is basically your PC being torn between their legendary, super heroic self and their mundane, human self, and yes it’s all supported mechanically.
Now, sure, I’ll grant that this game is so damn pretty that I probably can’t see straight, but all I can say is that right now I want to set all my other games on fire so that I can just focus on playing this.
