Have you ever longed to be a spaceborne hero sworn to undertake perilous quests? Felt the irresistible drive to explore uncharted space, unravel the secrets of a mysterious galaxy, and build bonds with those you meet on your travels?
Now is your opportunity! GM Kris (the guy who’s always running those Not-Quite-Dungeons-and-Dragons games) will be joining forces with local podcasting legend, storytelling master, and gaming aficionado, GM Steve of Errant Adventures Podcast, to introduce you all to the fantastic Starforged RPG by Shawn Tomkin.
What makes Starforged special? Why should you care? This is an exquisitely crafted, narrative focused game that is designed to be prep-less and even GM-less! You didn’t misread that: you can play RPGs without spending hours meticulously balancing encounters and creating stat-blocks. You can even play without a GM! There are always more players looking for a game than there are GMs willing to run one, but with Starforged (and the ENNIE award winning, low-fantasy precursor game: Ironsworn), you don’t need to let that stop the fun!
Character creation will be done at the beginning of the session by selecting from a set of archetypes. We’ll also take an abbreviated look at the world-building mechanics to set our opening scene. Then we’ll launch into a custom adventure, which we’ll create on the fly using the generative story-telling mechanics of Starforged.
