A Kickstarter to Take Amber Diceless "Amberless" - Lords of Gossamer and Shadow: Diceless Role-Playing
When I was in my Dark Ages of Roleplaying - roughly 96-08 - my opportunities to find a game were limited. There wasn't much in the way of tabletop RPGs being played online, and the few that were were forum or email based.
I played a short AD&D game via an AOL forum and then later stumbled into an Amber Diceless play by email game. I tracked down the rules so I could play and it was a blast while it lasted, which wasn't long. Seems to be the curse of email RPG games that I've encountered. Still, I enjoyed what game time we had immensely.
Rite Publishing understands Patronage Projects. They've been doing such for years. I have faith in their ability to run a successful Kickstarter Project.
They are offering PDFs and the opportunity to get the books s print on demand "at cost". First time I've seen this done, in theory it could really decrease shipping costs to certain countries, and it allows for the stretch goals to be in PDF and Print on Demand, keeping the Kickstarter funds for actual content creation and not printing costs.
I love the art of seen thus far.
I have some serious nostalgia for the Amber Diceless system and Amber itself, even though I thought the setting was a bit restrictive on the system. Which, of course, makes this new setting a win win for me.
F' me! I'm in for $75.
If I'm going to stray far from the OSR, I may as well do it with a system I enjoyed ;)
