Mazes uses the Polymorph system, which does away with any form of maths. Each Polymorph game player only uses a single polyhedral die: a d4, a d6, a d8, or a d10.
Routinely Itemised’s RPG news summarises reports and finds from the Geek Native blog and around the web.
9th Level Games’ MAZES may feature. The game has been nominated for an award.
Mazes is powered by polymorph – which is a compact yet comprehensive rules framework for roleplaying. It’s designed to provide the full experience of a crunchy RPG, but with minimal setup and prep – all without giving up the fun, mechanical depth of an exciting roleplaying system.
Known as the Mazes Crown & Skull tee you can buy it from 9th Level’s Threadless store in Extra Soft, Triblend or Premium, in a range of colours and from S to 3XL.
The goal with Mazes is to capture the feel of a classic fantasy RPG and couple that with an ultramodern ruleset.
It feels like a spicy week, with plenty of news and a noticeable uptick in Kickstarter activity. Oh, and the powerhouse Marvel returning to roleplaying games.
