Well this seems neat!
Rennasistance: The Rough Cut Edition
A downloadable game
Using the stolen resources and hoarded wealth of centuries, in cyberyear 2222 the last remaining capitalists have rallied around the sorcerer emperor Otto Constantine I. Via a dark combination of modern hyper-tech and reality-shattering rituals, they have erected an impenetrable mountain range around the city-state of Neo-Klettgau and raised an army of Cyber-Hussars to enforce a brutal fascist regime.
Community, private enterprise, love, art, even music has been outlawed by the state, with every aspect of life being geared toward the state and its monopoly. Nobody knows what the Capitalists plan, and no one can stop them.
Except for you.
You stole a CD, downloaded an MP3, attended a secret concert, or just heard a song on the wind. However it happened, it hit you like a bullet fired from God's own gun. The shard of music lodged itself in your heart and awoke vast, impossible powers. Unstoppable magic. Unstoppable enough to lay waste to this cruel micro empire, and bring freedom to the world around you.
In Rennasistance, you play as a gang of revolutionaries, using real-life music playlists to cast powerful magic and fight an ongoing street-war against the fascist forces of Neo-Klettgau. Rise and empower the people, repair and restore what was stolen from them, and strike down the emperor before his plans come to fruition. Build Heat through your acts of liberation and watch the world react to your revolution.
Featuring several innovative mechanics:
- Vibes signal to the table the exact kind of success and failure you want, and helps everyone build a cohesive story together
- Real life music clips act as spells, and an Intermission Phase keeps the game on your mind even between sessions
- Dynamic initiative and agency systems allow players to decide exactly how much work the GM does, if any!
- Narrative focused health system provides a powerful framework for dramatic encounters!
This rough cut edition is designed to gather feedback for an eventual full version developed by crowdfunding, and lacks any fancy layout or graphics, and is fairly light on the lore and setting. I think it rocks, but a word of warning!
