3:05 PM +Ed_Jowett: Hi everyone, I’m Ed from Shades of Vengeance!
3:05 PM +Ed_Jowett: I’m back again after a short absence, to talk about Era: Forbidden, which is the 9th Era universe that I created.
3:05 PM +Ed_Jowett: We’ve actually already published this game in Pocket Rulebook format, and I may even have done a Q&A here for it back then a year ago (I’m sure Dan would know!)
3:06 PM ~Dan: (Welcome to Randomworlds, umbralwarrior!)
3:06 PM +umbralwarrior: o7
3:06 PM ~Dan: (umbralwarrior: Here for the Q&A, or just a general visit? 🙂 )
3:06 PM +Ed_Jowett: But we’re back on Kickstarter now to create a Core Rulebook for it, instead of the Pocket Rulebook – the difference being 38 A5 pages to 250 A4 pages!
3:07 PM +umbralwarrior: Followed Ed_Jowett from Discord 🙂
3:07 PM ~Dan: (Cool! Please make yourself at home!)
3:07 PM +umbralwarrior: Thank you kindly
3:07 PM +Ed_Jowett: Era: Forbidden ((Link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/shadesofvengeance/era-forbidden-an-rpg-of-hope-in-an-invaded-world?ref=b5r59f)https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/shadesofvengeance/era-forbidden-an-rpg-of-hope-in-an-invaded-world?ref=b5r59f) explores a world where Angels and Demons have arrived on our world and brought their never-ending war with them!
3:08 PM +Ed_Jowett: The players take the role of “Forbidden”, who are individuals that have touched weapons, armour or equipment left behind by the Angels and Demons as they fought. This equipment is so powerful that it changes the Humans that touch it… well, those that survive anyway.
3:09 PM +Ed_Jowett: They grow taller, stronger, faster. Not quite on a par with the Angels and Demons, but able to take on some of the weakest in one-on-one and win more than half of the time.
3:09 PM +Ed_Jowett: Unfortunately, they are also then shunned by Humans – the process is seen as removing some of your humanity, and hunted by Angels and Demons, as they are now a potential threat.
3:10 PM +Ed_Jowett: So they often wander the world alone or in small groups, as a result, trying to both protect Humans where they can and hide from the majority of the angelic and demonic forces, picking off what they can to try to make the world a safer place.
3:11 PM +Ed_Jowett: The game’s designed for smaller groups than your average RPG, excelling with 1-3 players and a GM (which is something I think is great in the current era of COVID and lockdowns).
3:11 PM +Ed_Jowett: And it’s one of my personal favourites to GM, out of all the ones I have created! 😀
