ADX – Apotheosis of the Rose: Princess Drive And Dragon Trinity Crash: How The World Was Made

So, the ADX Kickstater is funded, yay! So no matter what I, and other backers, get the main book.

Also, currently the kickstarter’s less than $1000 away from its first stretch goal:  Apotheosis of the Rose: Princess Drive.

Lemme tell you about it:

Apotheosis of the Rose: Princess Drive

In a World of Magic and Mechs young women must harness the Seven Virtues (Love, Wisdom, Justice, Courage, Kindness, Trust, and Fate) and channel them through mystic drivers to fight evil. It’s an adventure of high romance and hope.

Yes, my setting also has mechs in a fantasy setting but Princess Drive is a far different beast. While I’m focused on powerful sorcery and poking fun at tabletop tropes, Topher’s setting explores duty and desire in a seriously cool fashion.

Both our settings will feature epic magimech conflict.

I’m really excited about Princess Drive. It reminds me of Utena, whose mystique I love. It also has a really interesting bond mechanic. Bonds are potent relationships Princesses harness as weapons for their drivers. One’s ambition against a rival could become a silver blade, one’s unrequited love could become a stealth cloak. A driver’s powers will wax, wane and change given the relations its princess keeps with those she loves and hates. Drama will have a direct relation to mech battles; which is awesome. Exploring relationships and then stomping things is one of my favorite a pass times in RPGs.

As for Dragon Trinity Crash

As it stands there’s still a way to go for my stuff to become part of the Anthology  That being said we’re only 6 days out of 30, plenty of time yet. So, in order to drive you to back here’s an in game appetizer for my setting:

The beginning was a vast, empty, void. The first light came as a flash of three cosmic,  holy forces converging. Sea, land and sky swirled out of nothing as a vortex of creation. A mammoth fire ignited and became the sun, mass gathered into spheres and danced around it. Life germinated in the seas and rolled out like a great blanket across our entire world. This primal chaos roared, the Emperor of Hurricanes, for billions of years.

When it had finally slowed, when our ancestors stared up at the sky with the longing question that sparked the first sentient thought, the Holy Trinity appeared: Typhon, his jade shoulders larger than mountains. Tiamat, her shimmering, azure scales like a wall that kept in the sea. Bahamut, his golden wings hanging like clouds across the horizon. The Three stood over their creation, and they knew it was good.

Sadly, this shining moment was not to last.

Typhon stepped on Bahamut’s tail. Bahamaut yelped and electro-zotted Tiamat. Tiamat snaked around and delivered a big old backhand to Typhon’s head.

The three have been bickering ever since.

Again, hope this wets your appetite.

More to come.
