Title: Kickstarter: Invulnerable RPG
Post by: Brazen Saint on April 28, 2011, 10:21:51 AM
My super hero roleplaying game, Invulnerable RPG, is written and in playtesting now.  You can have a look for yourself at my site http://www.imperfekt-industrees.com/ (http://www.imperfekt-industrees.com/) or see the game on Scribd http://www.scribd.com/Imperfekt_Gammes (http://www.scribd.com/Imperfekt_Gammes).

I've got a cover, and a few pieces of art, but to fund the rest of the internal artwork, I've started a Kickstarter project, at: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/528165883/invulnerable-rpg-publication-costs (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/528165883/invulnerable-rpg-publication-costs). The game will be published in PDF and physical on Lulu, and probably on Drivethru as well.

I've really tried to make a super hero RPG that doesn't sacrifice the meaty, crunchy bits of combat, but makes character creation less of a chore, but that also builds in dramatic conflict into the character concept itself, and that doesn't require a power vs. versatility tradeoff. My players and I are having a lot of fun playtesting it, that's for sure.

I can be reached at jkubli@imperfekt-industrees.com. Thanks!

Any game where your character level is called your "Awesomeness Level", definitely gets my attention. I went through the first few pages and it looks well written. Its the first time Ive looked at the Cosmology engine and I like it. Scribd was being very very laggy so it was kinda tough to navigate, but I will definitely look through it some more and give you some feed back. Really looking forward to it.

Thanks! So far editing and playtesting is going really well, and right now I'm working on a free downloadable adventure for the game. I should point out that the http://www.imperfekt-industrees.com (http://www.imperfekt-industrees.com) site is updated a little more frequently, and is a lot more lean and mean than Scribd.

I always look forward to good, thoughtful feedback. Thanks in advance!

I did go to the site and found the downloadable version of the rules. Im thinking of running something with the family here in the house and seeing what they think. I actually like the Cosmology engine. Its robust enough for experienced gamers and simple enough for newer and/or younger players to be able to enjoy playing an RPG without feeling like they need to know Algebra, and when you have a 12, 13, and 14 year old gamer in the house, thats important.

That's great, let me know how it turns out! As you can see from the site, there is also the Dirge Dark Modern Fantasy RPG under the Cosmology System (which might not be suitable for young'uns, but you be the judge!).

To keep this on topic :), I've gone as far as to have print playtest copies sent from Lulu, but the games aren't listed in their main store yet. I'd love to talk about, or hear advice about, publication and distribution for a brand-new game.

Zala, if you'd like to talk more about the Invulnerable RPG and the Cosmology Engine, we should probably start a thread in the Game Development Forum.

And on a publishing note, so you know, although the Cosmology Engine is listed as Creative Commons Attribution Noncommercial Sharealike, I'm totally open to people making their own (non-free) games with it, with permission. Let me know if you want to use it, and we'll talk. :)

That sounds great!

Go ahead and start a thread if you would like. Ive already spoken with my wife and she (as a VERY knowlegable comic collector in her youth) is interested in runnig a game at the house.

Id really like a chance to drive this cosmology engine a bit.

Down to less than 48 hours on the Kickstarter project for the Invulnerable RPG http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/528165883/invulnerable-rpg-publication-costs (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/528165883/invulnerable-rpg-publication-costs). Thanks for the interest, and <worthless shill>if you're interested in a copy of the final version, you might drop by and pledge a few bucks. </worthless shill> :)
