While this guide’s topic is quite adult, no graphic descriptions or explicit art is used throughout. The idea was to make it as “safe for work” as the main Defiant rulebook.
In Defiant, characters are powerful supernatural beings controlling a city or similar area after the world’s end. It’s been nominated for Origins, looks gorgeous, skews to the adult and is recommended by Geek Native.
Routinely Itemised is Geek Native’s RPG news round-up with summaries from the blog, elsewhere on the web and blended with RPG news, deals, coupons and offers.
RPG news summarised from the week that’s just gone with reviews, interviews, bundle deals, competitions and crowdfunding projects.
There are about two weeks left to join the Kickstarter, as I eventually did. The target funding goal has been met, met again and then met for the third time.
Defiant RPG is an urban fantasy game about the mighty, modern-day supernaturals, who rebelled against their destiny and, instead of destroying the world, decided to protect it.
It’s been a busy week, so sit back and treat yourself to a scroll through the headlines; sales, reviews, interviews and stats from the RPG-scene.
Rather than destroy the world when the apocalypse came, you protected your part of it. After all, the world’s fun, engaging, full of pleasure, politics and drama.
In the game, you didn’t destroy the world during the apocalypse. You protected your bit of it, and now, as a fallen angel, dragon, ancient god or demon, you’re the ruler of your part.
If the setting is broadly contemporary, then the fact that characters are witches does not disqualify it as a game with a modern environment.
