Description Edit | History

Publisher's blurb:

A Role-Playing Game of Epic Narrative & the Tarot

Freewill is a coveted possession of the few - the heroes.

Create a hero, fueled by burning desire and carve out your own epic.

Harness the rich symbolism and story telling power of the tarot deck.

Swansong focuses heavily on the player characters and their unfolding stories, each will be driven to reach their individual goal, whilst at the same time being influenced by their ego.

Ultimately each character must face their own personal demons under cosmic judgment. Only if this trial is passed can they go on to confront The Prince of Darkness - whatever form he takes.

And if they should falter - It will be their swansong.

The game system is flexible and robust, Swansong can easily accommodate any kind of character you care to conceptualise.

The tarot based resolution system is quick and elegant allowing almost seamless play, as well as granting far more narrative control to players than traditional rpgs.

Featuring a revolutionary and tactical combat system, victory can be won or lost in an instant.

Battles are fraught with risk and reversals of fortune, with inter-player psychology as decisive as a meaty stat line. Also, the yielding mechanic means you will never be screwed by drawing one lousy hand.

Swansong incorporates a tarot based scenario generator, providing you with the means of creating countless role-playing scenarios.
