Reynaldo M. (of Akenia and Barovania) and Grey Wiz (of Mysterious Path) are teaming up to create an RPG. Full disclosure: I sometimes play in Rey’s online games.
Break!! will likely be familiar in many ways to players of traditional fantasy RPGs (for example, there are checks, saves, and contests; I bet you can guess about how all those things work without any explanation). There are some interesting variations, however, such as ability scores being replaced by a trait system. Which is not to mention the wonderful, vaguely JRPG aesthetic projected by the art of Grey Wiz:
And check out this slick layout mockup:
I am certainly going to keep my eye on this.
…Interesting! And I really like that art style. I like “cartoony”, anime-influenced designs, especially sketched or with relatively flat shading.
Thanks for the signal boost!
Not really sure where this project will end up, it’s still early days – hopefully we can actually get this thing into a consumable state in the not too distant future.
You know I’ve been following since it kicked off and it just cant go quick enough for me 🙂
