Beyond GODSEND Agenda, and Terra Oblivion, we have ATLANTIS: The First Age. Work is happening, and writing is filling up folders.

GODSEND Agenda Sneak Peek- The Angelos!

GODSEND Agenda -The Angelos Zuriel

 

Angelos_Promo_v1-01More sneak peeks of what the game will look like when finished. The PDF presented is still a very early Beta version sample of the Angelos and a sample character. Later this month, I hope to have the full beta version up for interested people to see.

Let’s look at what a GODSEND Agenda character is made of.

(Click on the image to the left to see the PDF)

GODSENDAgenda_Angelos_Example-01

1-Species: There are six different species in GODSEND Agenda.

  • Angelos
  • Atlanteans
  • Black October
  • Chimerans
  • Elohim
  • U.S.E.R. Agent (Human)

2-Archetype: Each character has an archetype, and each type has a different outlook on life and how they live as a superhuman. Zuriel is a Warrior archetype and settles conflicts with his fighting ability. Being a Warrior Archetype also gives Zuriel a “signature Attack.” The attack is player-defined and can be used times per round equal to his Ability Level

3-Divinity: This is a lot like Archetype and helps steer the player into a concept. The Divinity gives the player a price break on certain abilities and powers. So, a Super Soldier gets a point break on skill specializations and a few attributes.

4-Attributes: All attributes start at +0 and go up from there. A +0 is the average human and what everything else is based on. A +1 in an attribute, makes you twice as good as someone with a +0, and a +2 makes you four times as good.

The attributes are

  • Dexterity (DEX)
  • Constitution (CON)
  • Strength (STR)
  • Speed (SPD)
  • Combat Rating (CR)
  • Charisma (CHA)
  • Intelligence (INT)
  • Perception (PER)
  • Willpower (WIL)
  • Metaphysics Rating (MR)

5- Ability Level: this determines how powerful your hero is in the GODSEND Agenda. It starts at zero and works its way up to ten. The default start is Ability Level 3; a baseline human is Ability Level zero.

6- Hero Points: a meta currency in-game that allows the player to augment rolls, negate or add damage, or fiddle with the setting. Players start the game with twice their Ability Level plus their MR attribute.

7- Wealth Rating: this determines how much resources the hero has. The higher the attribute, the more wealth a hero has at their disposal.

8- Hit Points: How much physical damage a hero can take. The average human can take 5 points of damage; a starting hero can take 10+ CON attribute.

9- Mind Points: How much psychic damage a hero can take. The average human can take 5 points of damage; a starting hero can take 10+ WIL attribute.

10- Renown: How famous or infamous your hero is. The more Renown they possess, the more they can affect the world around them.

11- Skills: Skills start at +1 for a novice and go up from there, no upper limit. Skills plus Attributes are added to 2D10 and rolled versus a GM assigned difficulty. Specializations as a Margin of Success (MoS) to the roll.

12- Disadvantages: Every hero has them, and the player defines what they are. Each hero has one of the following:

  • Relationship- someone that the player is vexed by. They could be in love with this person, hate this person, or are involved with a person that could compromise them in situations.
  • Internal- This is something going on inside the hero. A personality quirk that hinders the hero.
  • External- Something everyone on the outside, sees and reacts to.

Each Disadvantage is rated from 1 to 3. The player has 5 points to distribute among them, and activating them gives the hero more Hero Points to use.

13-Gadgets: This is Zuriel’s equipment. Some heroes have powers, and some have equipment, while others have a combination of both. Zuriel is all about his equipment. The equipment is built using the powers and gadget system in GODSEND Agenda.

14- Result Chart: A small bit of help at the bottom of the sheet to help determine the result of the dice rolls. The higher you roll, the more Margins of Success you receive.

A basic success is a roll of 11 or higher. Partial Success is when the result is 6-10, and failure is 1-5.

Thanks for the interest, more to come later!

GODSEND Agenda

A Game of Postmodern Mythology

“We only use the term superheroes for P.R. purposes.
Truth is, we’re the biggest bastards you’ll ever meet.”

— Jack Hawksmoor, The Authority

GODSEND_promo_1-01

A superheroic roleplaying game about changing the world, whether it wants it or not.

GODSEND Agenda: Post Modern Mythology

This one has been on the backburner for a while but I’m finally putting the pedal to the metal.

GODSEND Agenda is a story of…

…powerful aliens who positioned themselves as gods on Earth thousands of years ago
…a race of Atlantean oracles who foresaw a desolate future dominated by an incomprehensible alien race.
…genetically augmented transhumans, doomed to die fighting to save a world that turns its back on them.
…a star-spanning alien blight that slowly and insidiously conquers planet after planet.
…and the slim yet powerful hope of man’s eventual triumph over them all.

The GODSEND Agenda is not your typical game of costumes and superpowers. It looks at superhumans and how they affect the world around them. It also deals with how our culture worships them, now and in times past. GODSEND Agenda offers players chances to not only interact with those legendary celestial beings but to walk among them as equals.

More to come…

Small update
The printer’s proof for Bastion came in, and it looks great!

I’m very excited about this book, and I hope once you have it in your hands, I’m sure you will see that enthusiasm on every page. I’m especially proud of all the talented individual that worked so hard to make this happen.

Oh, PS!

There is a very cool Kickstarter you should check out. Its very cool and if you enjoy Afrocentric RPGs this may be for you.
