Apotheosis Drive X – Dragon Trinity Crash

So,

I recently joined Google+ and there met David Hill of Machine Age Productions.

He was looking for alternate settings to offer as a kickstarter incentive for his Apotheosis Drive X. I submitted an idea and he deigned it worthy to add as a possible reward.

Needless to say I hope the kickstarter goes very well.

Apotheosis Drive X

Is a Fate based, mecha table top RPG along the lines of Gundam and Evangelion. It’s a multi-generational, interplanetary romp where the stakes and the mechs, aptly named Myths and Titans, get grander as the campaign goes on. It encourages players to make a cavalcade of characters to crew their Mechs and ride their adventures till they become an epic saga.

I’ll be backing it. I want this book, even if my own contribution is not included.

Granted, the kickstarter’s generated over $2’400 in its first few hours, so things are looking good.

ADX’s setting also has something known as the ‘Stratos Commonwealth’, go ahead, say it out loud, the name’s pure awesome.

Dragon Trinity Crash

For the past month I’ve been working on an Anime style magic system for Fate. Given David was looking for ideas I thought I’d roll this into a mech game, hence Dragon Trinity Crash.

The setting’s based on three great Dragons; Typhon, Dragon of the Earth, Bahamaut, Dragon of the Sky and Tiamat, Dragon of the Sea. Together they created the world. They’re also, braty little siblings who constantly fight. Often these celestial battles rupture the fabric of reality and summon monsters into the world.

Some of these are freaking HUGE.

Fortunately, there live sorcerers who can call upon the power of the Dragons to slay said beasts. A few can even summon aspects of the big three to create humongous dragon armors. Also, in a last ditch effort, multiple armors can combine to create a single Mega Armor.

Unfortunately, sorcerers tend to be a selfish, destructive lot and often blow up as many villages as they do beasties.

Oh well.

Think of this setting as a mesh between Magic Knight Rayearth and Slayers.

Features of Dragon Trinity Crash

  • An anime battle magic system for Fate. Low level’ spells can send a knight in full plate flying. High level spells can dispatch ogres with one casting. Legendary spells reshape the the landscape; you finally can carve out that bay you’ve always wanted.
  • Simple rules for crafting your very own dragon armor and similar rules for combining it with your party’s armors.
  • A tongue in cheek high fantasy setting with darker themes lurking just underneath.

Aaand, that’s my pitch.

I hope this entices you to become a backer.
