Levi Davis and Talarius Games have set an ambitious goal for the fully-fledged and standalone Aetherpunk RPG.
Legends of Kralis needs $15,000 to fund. It’s just launched, has more than three weeks to run and has attracted more than 50 backers already. You can check out more below or from the pitch page.
Curious? The 46-page quick start is free to download.
As the name suggests, this “Aetherpunk” RPG is set in a fantasy world called Kralis. Kralis is part of a huge Omniverse.
Talarius Games’ vision of Aetherpunk is one in which technology and magic coexist. So adventures might be high fantasy, such as discovering new worlds in the Omniverse between battles with Void Pirates or lower-tier adventures such as going up against organisations like the Obsidian Circle or exploring ruins.
The publisher already has a gaming engine to use – The Talarius Game System. This is a d100-based system in which rolls equal or under skill or attribute scores count, and the number of successes matters.
For the players the Player’s Guide contains all they need to create in-depth and detailed characters that spring to life from the character sheet. It includes details on 15 core species, four different Focuses, 30+ Skills, 15+ Backgrounds, and over 300+ unique Abilities to full flesh out characters. It contains all the spells, equipment, and more for character’s to survive and explore the wilds of the world and the depths of the Omniverse.
A pledge of $15 is enough to unlock several rewards, such as the Legends of Kralis: Player’s Guide in PDF, a mention in the credits and access to the pledge manager.
Backers at the $5 level get the Game Mater’s Guide, Bestiary and Legends of Kralis Adventure PDF & digital VTT maps as well.
At $65, the physical copies become available with the Player’s Guide in hardback and bonuses like the Character Journal as a softback.
The top tier is $120, which is a busy collection of rewards.
The estimated delivery is around March for the PDFs and June, perhaps August, for print, given the supply chain.
