A Micro Review of Solar Blades & Cosmic Spells

Solar Blades & Cosmic Spells is my newest RPG project and it is being crowdfunded right now over IndieGoGo. It’s a game about sword and sorcery adventure amongst the stars, based on my original RPG Sharp Swords & Sinister Spells.

With a simple yet very flexible system, the game allow players to assume the roles of space adventurers in a grim universe beset by sorcerous tyrants. They can search for treasures of a glorious path, fight the tyranny of the Galactic Overlords, work for these cruel despots, or just struggle to survive. The game also comes with a incredible array of tools that let you use the setting as you need, and create many gaming elements on the spot. You can even use it with other Sci-Fi RPGs if you want.


Don’t believe me? Why don’t you go to the projects webpage and take a look at the whole draft text that is available there? You can read the entire game now, for free. Need a direct link? Here it is: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/solar-blades-cosmic-spells-tabletop-rpg-books/x/611008#/updates/1

Some of our backers are already reading it and sharing their impressions of the game text. Check this out:

How to never describe a dungeon!

I've heard it a thousand times. You probably heard it too. Some people, I don't know why, say that dungeons, especially large ones, are boring. The endless repetitions of rooms and corridors and having to choose to go left, right, north or south depresses them. I don't know why. Actually, I do know why.

Because they don't really know how to run a dungeon in play. It seems easy, effortless. Just say what's in the room the PCs are in and where the passages going out of it go. But it's not. They get bored with the "you get to a intersection and there is a door to the north and two passages, one going east and one going west" because that's a terrible way of describing a dungeon environment and gives nothing really useful to the players to choose from.

You never describe a dungeon like that. There's a lot more going on that we can initially see. A good referee will take all the context of what the dungeon was, what it is now, who lived there, who…

Solar Blades & Cosmic Spells - Complete RPG in Draft Text

Solar Blades & Cosmic Spells IndieGoGo campaign ended about a month ago. It was my first crowdfunding campaign by my own (we made one for the Brazilian version of Sharp Swords & Sinister Spells to pay for a print run and some other stuff), and so far I am really happy with it (even though the currency exchange is quite bad for me, as I receive less for the dollar than I pay for it).

Anyway, one of the last goals of the project was to release a artless version of the game for free too, to make the game more accessible and easy to use. So why not share the current draft of the rules here too with character sheets to go with it. This way you all can play the game while we wait for it to be ready!

So grab the complete Draft Text of Solar Blades & Cosmic Spells RPG here! It takes some time to load all the content, but it's worth it, I promise you!

Grab the Character Sheets here, and here!
