Crios is a Kickstarter pitch from Battlefield Press. At the time of posting they’ve raised $1,500+, asking for $3,000 and have about a week to do it.
The pitch is pretty good; a mashup of fantasy and World War I action using the Renaissance Deluxe roleplaying game. I suspect they may be suffering due to the lack of a pitch video and the festive time of year. We’re all broke, right?
Renaissance Deluxe is a setting using a D100 mechanic published by Cakebread & Walton and first used in Clockwork & Chivalry 2nd edition.
The war in Crios is kicked off as a chain of treaties are involed – exactly like the Great War. In this setting the King of the Dwarven nation of Tharos dies without an heir. The neighbouring Goblin nation of Qual takes this as an opportunity to grab some land.
Magic in Crios has been on the wane ever since the “gods war”. As magic became less stable there was greater need for technology and the setting has had their own industrial revolution.
At $20 you get a PDF copy of the book. There are still some early bird options that get you the print edition for just a little more.
