I have been working on writing an RPG ruleset+campaign setting and I think it's ready for a public PBP playtest. My game is called Athakhis, after the planet it's set on.
Athakhis is a rules light, tactical, sword and sorcery RPG. It's set on a post-apocalyptic desert planet. You play a human with genie blood who has access to a few elemental magic powers. The setting strives for a non-European flavor, instead drawing influence from North African, Middle Eastern and South/Central Asian history and mythology.
Intellectual properties that have influenced me in creating Athakhis are Al-Qadim, Mad Max, Elder Scrolls: Oblivion, Avatar: the Last Airbender, One Thousand and One Nights, Ray Harryhausen's Sinbad movies, and Robert E. Howard's Hyborean Age.
What I'm looking for right now is people who might be interested in checking out the setting and rules by playing through a short adventure set in and around Ahgradin.
The rules are so simple that I will teach the specifics after I select players. The core mechanic focuses around resource management in the form of pools of six sided dice. Outside of combat it plays very similarly to Pathfinder or D&D. Combat in Athakhis is like combat in RISK in many ways, it's about energy management and not extending oneself too far. It also utilizes the RPG standard five foot grid and tokens/miniatures to simulate battle, going for a skirmish wargame kind of feel.
I'm looking for 4-6 people ideally. If reading through the setting document gives you a character concept, go ahead and post it. I'll monitor this thread for any questions people might have. If I see enough interest, I'll go ahead and make it an official recruitment with more specific submission guidelines. Thanks for checking out my game!
