The dark fantasy RPG about the fall and resurgence of humanity, Black Void, has partnered with Modiphius for global distribution.
Christoffer Sevaldsen’s RPG smashed targets on Kickstarter, raising DKK 327, 315 or over 210% of the funding goal.
The core rulebook is a high-quality, 400+ page, full-colour hardback with everything necessary for players and game masters. It’s rich with original artwork, novel species and monsters.
The game takes place in the distant past, which is exotic and dark, familiar and outlandish at the same time. Characters could be emissaries from the last remnants of human civilisation, travelling the void as explorers or seeking out the long lost Earth. PCs could be trying gain influence to establish a new home for humanity or diving into the intrigues of Llyhn, building an empire for themselves in the underworld and perhaps finding enlightenment for themselves beyond the veil of reality.
It’s a game about exploration, the struggle to survive and the willpower of humanity. It’s about exploring into the unknown and discovering what it means to be human.
Black Void game mechanics
The RPG uses a single d12 roll to determine success or failure. Actions have a difficulty rating, and that’s the total the d12 must equal or beat for the move to succeed. There are modifiers, though, such Traits, abilities and condition.
Black Void also has ‘enlightenment’ and ‘waastah’. Enlightenment grants the characters the ability to travel in the Void and extraordinary powers. The waastah offers up tangible and vital sway, authority and social influence – even with aliens.
When does Black Void ship?
The core rules arrive in September with a recommended retail price of $50. An introductory campaign, Those Who Would be Gods arrives at the same tag with a price tag of $20.
Modiphius will be doing their usual thing of acting as sales managers for Christoffer Sevaldsen, running logistics and contacts with retailers.
Black Void has a small website up at Black Void Games.
