Rogue Genius Games, the publishing company from Owen Stephens, has teamed up with RPG vet Darrin Drader for Reign of Discordia.
It’s a space opera set after the fall of the evil empire, which asks the question, “Who picks up the pieces?” The campaign has just launched, and official announcements are still to come, but the backers are sweeping anyway. The pair are asking for $8,500 for the project to proceed and have nearly $2,000 already. You can find out more on the pitch page.
We’ve seen Reign of Discordia before. It was once a True20 game. True20 is an RPG from Steve Kenson and Green Ronin, the first system for Blue Rose, and designed first for Mutants & Masterminds.
White Star is an OSR RPG system.
The Kickstarter project promises a setting where you can play a simple trader, mount a defence against the alien R’Tillek, or both! You can travel between the former Imperium worlds, carve out an empire of your own or just fly off on adventures.
If the project succeeds, Darrin Drader will expand the game with new setting info, add all the playable alien spaces (even the ones hinted at before), add space battle rules, have starship rules and psionics rules, convert all the gear and offer a new adventure.
Geek Native expects an update to the Kickstarter reasonably soon, perhaps as early today, given the momentum which will reveal that Blaster Bolts #12 will be dedicated to Reign of Discordia. That’s Fainting Goat Games’ White Star zine. It’s also anticipated that the news will be if you back the project, you’ll get Blaster Bolts 12 for free.
Reign of Discordia is a science fiction space opera setting by veteran RPG author Darrin Drader, published by Owen K.C. Stephens. Inspired by the retro-futurism of the 1970s and 80s, such as the original Star Wars trilogy, Battlestar Galactica, and Starblazers, Reign of Discordia is a setting where heroes are needed, and opportunities are growing. Laid low by the reptilian R’Tillek, the Stellar Imperium is no more. While many see this as a good thing, the R’Tillek have not gone, and they have not forgotten who their enemies are.
You can support the project with cash or social shares, but if you find $20, then, as a reward, you’ll get either the 5e-compatible or White Star version of Reign of Discordia.
At $45, you’ll also get a Print on Demand at-cost option with the PDF and the novel Neurogenesis.
There are other tiers, but after the $45, the loyalty levels hike to $165 and then $450, adding an online gaming session or collaboration with Darrin Drader.
