Broken Dice have made their Kickstarter debut with the very promising looking The Nuadan Chronicles.
The company, Brooke and Jason Junker, is asking for $13,500 to make two beautifully illustrated books. At the time of writing, the Kickstarter is brand new and already has over $3,500 in the tank. If you want to see what’s got people so interested you can pop over to the campaign page now or watch the pitch video below.
Electro Fantasy for The Nuadan Chronicles means ephemeral magic and steam tech that produces electricity.
The game uses a modified d100 system, and in it, characters are mercenaries fighting in an industrialising and war-torn world.
There are two books, and so the first pledge tier that gets you both the rulebook and the lore book is for $25. That’ll also get you a fillable character sheet in PDF, trailer music and a thank you in the book.
Wisely, Broken Dice are restricting shipping of physical books to the US only. It’s disappointing, of course, for those of us elsewhere in the world but international shipping can be a Kickstarter killer.
It’s $40 for one of the two books and $80 for both. There is also a signed collector’s edition version bound in faux leather and which will set you back $120.
The Rulebook and Lore Book
The rule book takes you through character creation and progression. The Nuadan Chronicles offer up some 35 different backgrounds to flavour your mercenary.
Also in the core rules is information on Tinkering and Technomancy. These are how characters can control technology.
There are skills, talents, magic and equipment and stat advice for putting NPCs and creatures together as a GM. The combat system uses action points.
Meanwhile, the Lore Book gets into the history and timeline of Nuada. We have got the Cataclysm and the events that led up to the six nations.
It’s in the Lore Book that you’ll find creatures, including the fae, information about regions and rumours about important people.
