For the last 20 years, Brendan Myers has been had at work to produce a new kind of RPG. This game is called Fellwater, and it takes place in our modern world. This world is full of ordinary people, but speculates on whether gods and goddesses from mythology were actually sacred beings, or just people with some extraordinary skills. The game is nearly complete at 286 pages long, and Myers has now launched a Kickstarter to gather interest and fund its productions.
A large part of the goal Myers is trying to reach is to employ artists to bring his ideas to life in a finished physical book. Fellwater is based on a world discussed in books written by Myers himself, ones that have been compared to works of authors such as George R. R. Martin and Neil Gaiman. The high customization of your character means that there are over 3,000 possible outcomes for your unique character.
The Kickstarter is not only trying to get the game into print, but also create a website and provide additional materials such as character sheets and the ability to make it compatible with engines such as Pathfinder and d20. The Fellwater RPG project ends on December 4th, so there is still plenty of time to get in. Check out the video and read up on Brendan Myers’ previous work. I’m really hopeful that this RPG gets funded, and you should be too if you have any interest in mythology!
