This is my first attempt at putting together a complete RPG. It’s not really playable in it’s current state but many of the ideas have been refined and used elsewhere. In a sense it has evolved into, well, something completely different.
The Earth exists in the Void; the swirling empty/full potential that contains everything that was, will be or could be. The Earth is a glob of concentrated energy and life, solitary and small. Things born of the Void pick on it and its Shard Realms who desire its energy or life. The are drawn to it, they are powerful and they are insane.
A thin Veil that hides the true nature of the world from people’s eyes and protects the Earth.
The players get to take on characters that have come back from the dead and have been reformed in the “void”. They have been changed by the experience. Their minds have been broken. Yet they have gain powers and a new understanding into the world.
The world, the shard realms, the dimensions and the dream realms are opened up to them and they see what’s really in the shadows, Demons and Ghosts, Spirits and Monsters, Zombies and Travellers are all there, lurking in this gothic world. While outside, dark entities are pounding on the door, looking for a way in.
The last version of Void Universe: Renegade RPG is version 0.6. There will be no more versions of Void Universe: Renegade RPG.
The rules are created using FUDGE (Freeform, Universal, DIY, Gaming Engine).
