Swords & Chaos

Post by finarvyn »

Looks like a SIEGE based RPG, but not done by the Troll Lords. Not sure if that's good or bad, but they advertise that it's inspired by Karl Edward Wagner and Robert E Howard.

Anyone know anything about this?

I saw something about it on another forum. I go by a different name (same picture) over there. @Persimmon might be able to provide some information.

Looks pretty cool, although I've been hesitating to buy any new systems.

I backed the KS but we haven't seen much since a preview a few months ago. It looked promising, a sort of mash-up of C&C & DCC, with elements of Modiphius Conan thrown in. Spell system based on points, not Vancian. There are corruption & luck mechanics. No clerics, so I'm not sure how healing works. Hopefully not like in 5e. The most recent update, which was about three weeks ago, said that the pdf will be dropping soon, with hard copies available in November. I'm pretty psyched, because I've been itching to do a Sword & Sorcery campaign, but haven't found the right system for my group. Since we know C&C and DCC, but find the latter too clunky, this could fit the bill.

The author also hinted that he's doing something else for Troll Lord, but didn't say what that is.

This sounds intriguing. Let us know how things look once the pdf is issued.
