Latest Kickstarter update:

Greetings valued Eldritch RPG backers,

I'm not quite ready with the latest progress update. I wanted to publish new information before the end of the month, but it will be just a few more days.   

In the meantime, I've decided to take down the phpBB forum mentioned in an earlier update, because I received endless fake account notifications and spam. Almost nobody signed up for that forum anyway. I'm hoping to get most discussion funneled to a

A bit more news from my Kickstarter. I did an update yesterday, adding an add-on option of $5 to the $35 tier for those who want to add the ebook to the hardback. I'm also adding free PDF mini-adventure of at least 12 pages. I'll be pondering the details of that and review a bit more information about the setting tonight. 

I also announced my first stretch goal, a web based online character and monster generator designed by Randall Petras, co-author of the original game and a professional programmer to boot! This would be at the $4500 funding level. I'll be putting more information out on the front page about these things very soon. I'm excited about the prospect of an online generator. I wanted one for the first edition and didn't get the chance to make it happen. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/eldritch/eldritch-rpg-the-revised-edition

The Eldritch RPG: It's a Story in Action
Introduction
A tabletop fantasy game with rules that focus on action & story, revised to include new material and the campaign setting of Ainerêve!

The Eldritch RPG rules stand out in their capacity to handle many different scenarios and settings with a very flexible and manageable ability-system, which allows for the players to customize and create characters exactly to their liking. The skills and resolution systems are smooth, allowing combat and interactions to flow naturally with no constant need to reference books during play. The mechanics reinforce narration, which overflows to the rest of gameplay, getting everybody into the storytelling groove. Combat is made very abstract, replacing the traditional “attack roll versus target number” with a system of potential harm versus various defense pools. Heroes are powerful in this game, but still vulnerable alone or without good teamwork, and the same goes for villains and monsters. The next narrative turn can be hard to predict in the Eldritch game, which we believe is a positive feature. Players describe how their characters survive, before all defensive points are lost, rather than forcing the Game Master to dictate all consequences. Thus, action scenes are always collaborative.

Note: the website link points to the 1st Edition for now. That will change when the new edition is completed and published.
