Back Ruined Empire, Get Aspects!

Do you know about Anna Kreider’s Ruined Empires Kickstarter? She speaks words that have definitely grabbed my attention.

The Ruined Empire is a system-neutral campaign setting and source book set in a land of five nations in conflict, ripe with adventure and danger. It has a Final Fantasy-esque feel, a mind to social issues, and serves as a great idea-rich jumping off point to running your own games. This is not a campaign to fund a game still in development. The text is finished and currently in for one last editing pass.

I’ve already got my money in hand for the Kickstarter, but when I realized that she has artist Claudia Cangini on board—if you love the art of Fate Accelerated even half as much as I do, this should excite you—I got an idea and emailed Anna.

That idea: write Fate aspects for various setting elements of Ruined Empire. Anna digs this idea, and would make it a PDF mini-supplement for backers to be released sometime after the Ruined Empire has shipped. So if you’re the sort of person who wants it more usable out-of-the-box for a Fate game, or want to see what a full setting looks like when dozens of aspects are written for it, this is a good time to check out Ruined Empire.

This isn’t a stretch goal. If Ruined Empire funds, I’ll write this. The amount I write might expand as she hit stretch goals. But first thing’s first: let’s get her funded! I am super-stoked about Ruined Empire, and hope that you’ll get on this awesome train with me!

(Here’s Anna’s Kickstarter update, wherein she announces some other cool stuff as well.)
