Alastor Guzman and Axo Stories have crowdfunded the solo roleplaying game about divinity, civilization and legends in which you play a God. And you don’t need a GM.
In Tales from the Gods, you play by yourself using rules based on the award-winning Thousand Year Old Vampire. The solo RPG has been funded on Kickstarter. There are about three weeks left to get involved, and you can do so from the pitch page.
The campaign will go on to produce, all being well, a set of rules to record your divine saga, supply powers and encounters with other immortal creatures. That means over 120 unique prompts for your storytelling.
Gameplay needs at least a PDF copy of the book and you can download a free preview from Dropbox.
You also need a d10 or d6, but any random solution such as a spreadsheet rand() function or draws from a suitable pile of cards will do. You’ll need to randomly determine numbers from a range of 9 to -5.
Centuries have passed since the first records of your existence. The mortals you took under your protection have flourished into a large cvilization. You have witnessed the rise and fall of mighty heroes and powerful rules. You have seen great triumphs turn into colorful celebrations in just a blink of your lifespan, and entire cultures succumb to harrowing cataclysms. All these are part of the myths you have forged with your actions
Community copies are available, and you can back the campaign with shares and cash. If you pledge at least MX$350, which is about £15, you get that PDF copy as a reward. You’ll get to decide whether you want that in Spanish or English, getting all the stretch goals either way.
Or, if you can find MX$850 (about £35), you’ll also get a hard copy of Tales from the Gods. There’s one tier for the English version and one for the Spanish.
There’s a higher tier to get a hardcover for yourself and PDF copies for the community. That’s MX$1,800 or about £73, and pleasingly nearly a dozen backers have done just that.
Axo estimates that the book will ship in April 2023.
