Design Manifesto

Guiding Principles for the World:

  1. Tolkien’s Fantasy isn’t the only Fantasy.
  2. Politics and intrigue should be just as real and dangerous as an armed combatant.
  3. Deep and nuanced, but accessible and cinematic.
  4. Religion matters to everyone, not just the priests.

Guiding Principles for the System:

  1. Two characters of the same race and focus should be able to be appreciably different, and equally effective.
  2. Social characters should gain mechanical benefits without causing mind control.
  3. Mechanics should never hamper the pace of the narrative.
  4. Disadvantages should be truly disadvantageous, not sources of free points.
