VOID: Playtest Kit

Featured Image -- 564

Hello, VOID Fans!

In this post you will find five documents (IN RED) needed to begin playtesting VOID with your own friends and fellow gamers. We would like to thank Stephen B. Sonne for continuing to help us edit and prepare these materials. We could not have gotten this far without his insight and help! All in all, we hope that everything is clearly written and understandable, but if not so, then please feel free to ask questions!

1. VOID Character Sheet

The Character Sheet is the essential element for any player in the game of VOID. You can use the Character Creation Guide and the other documents in this post to build your character. On your Character Sheet, you will find on the last page areas for Specializations and Techniques. Do not worry about these while play testing. We will have these expanded elements in the final Core Rulebook after editing is completed.

2.  VOID Action Counter Sheet

The Action Counter Sheet is to help characters function smoothly in an interactive combat scenario. We recommend using this and some form of token to help during combat. You can find details  of how to best utilize this sheet in our Actions Explained document.

3. Player’s Guide

This is a section of the Core Rulebook to help you play the game of VOID. This includes our character creation information, how to form your background/motivations, detailed information on the 7 Races, how to engage in Combat, how Traits are defined, and the basics of Sorcery. Advanced combat options have currently been removed as they are still being edited. Regardless, you will still find plenty to keep you entertained for hours.

4. Beasts and Bounty

In this section (also pulled from the Core Rulebook) you will find the currency system, information on equipping characters, weapons and armor, and the basic adventuring gear. You will also find 10 of the 22 monsters and a large variety of animals in the game!

5. VOID Playtest Feedback Form

Lastly, we are including our feedback form. If you choose to playtest, we would really appreciate having each person of the group fill out the form so that we can continue to improve VOID. Tell us what you like and what you don’t like. If we receive these soon enough, we may be able to make continued adjustments before the Core Rulebook is completed. It is likely we will give everyone a couple months and release the full book this summer to have time to get some feedback.

Kickstarter Cancellation

Voiders,

It is time to look at ending our Kickstarter. We are forced to face the reality that our Kickstarter cannot succeed based upon the last week. Therefore, we will be canceling the VOID project today (03.15.14) at 6:00 PM CST.

Although we are certainly sad to see our vision for VOID not come to life, we remain invested in what we set out to do, which is to create something that we could stand behind and give back to the RPG community. As such, we plan to finish a final revision of our Core Rule Book and release it on our website for those that wish to play it. We will also put up our playtest response sheets so that we can continue to amend the rules to ensure the best experience possible for those that wish to play the game.

We cannot express fully how appreciative we are of all those that have supported us as we worked on this project. In this process, we have made lasting connections and friendships that cannot be weighed against the success of the project. We would be amiss if we did not recognize the investment of the community, illustrator, editor, and friends that have put time, energy, and financial support into this project. It is for these reasons that we cannot simply let the project fade. Please continue to follow our website (voidrpg.com) for updates regarding the PDF release.

Our most heartfelt thanks extends to all of you as we consider the next stage of our journey, whether we will eventually relaunch our Kickstarter to complete core illustrations or move on to our next game. Thank you for your support!

Kickstarter Update – Raise Your Tankard and Cheer

Hello Voiders (I always wanted to say that)!

With 19 day left of the campaign, we are honestly not where we would like to be to feel comfortable. With 33% of the campaign completed, we are sitting around 18% funding to complete the illustrations for VOID. We are finding that we are incredibly limited in the PR area, since we are 2 guys managing everything. Luckily, we have had some great support in spreading word from loyal backers and followers of this blog!!

svetWith that being said, we are excited that we have passed the $1000 mark on the Kickstarter campaign!! There is still plenty of time to raise the full funds, but we will likely need the support of our backers to help us reach the final goal.

We are humbly requesting assistance to doing what you can to spread the word. Every dollar literally helps! Remember Kickstarter does not withdraw money unless we meet our funding. The video explaining how Kickstarter works is at the bottom of our Project Page in case you are unaware.

We would like to share that we did have another interview completed HERE. It was wonderful meeting with Krazy Ivan and answering some of his very difficult questions.

We will have some other interviews hopefully posted this week! We will keep you updated as they become available.

Call to Arms – VOID Kickstarter

Void_banner_animated

 

 

We currently have 19 backers and over $500 dollars towards completion on our Kickstarter Project in 4 days! This has been due to the great support of our WordPress community and Facebook community. We are looking forward to having more communities join us as we attempt to complete funding to finish the illustrations for the free PDF.

With 26 days left, we realize that we need to make some major strides to meet our funding goal, especially if we want to consider the current stretch goals [as well as those that we have not yet posted]. With nearly 250 followers on our blog, we are asking the community from WordPress to help us continue to spread the word! We are hoping that with such a great community, we can really make this project succeed!

Stay tuned this week for some exciting interviews coming up! We will continue to provide updates for VOID Tabletop Roleplaying Game!

Is It Saturday Yet?

Uvil_finalThe anticipation for the release on Saturday is unreal! It is crazy to think that in just a few days the Kickstarter will be launched. The full video is uploaded, the infographics are created, the stretch goals are completed, the explanations are finalized, and the reward levels are listed. We hope that the community is excited for what we have put together. We do want to say that we are thrilled about the reward levels, as we fully bring fans into our world and gaming experience!!

The amount of time, energy, and so forth that has been put into this project has been beautifully spent. The only thing that has not happened – sleep! [We imagine that will not happen for a while still.]

As mentioned, we are launching the game Saturday evening. You may wonder what will be happening during the day on Saturday. To be honest – Play Testing!

Even as much fun as we have had creating the game, we have even more fun playing it! We are working on the adventure for this weekend as we speak, and for those that are involved locally, be prepared for an exciting adventure full of lore, riddles, and battles – laced in darkness!

Our next update will include an updated Flyer and a link to our Kickstarter. Have a great week!

Kickstarter Video Sneak Peak

As promised, we have included the first 1:30 seconds of our Kickstarter Video. This may or may not be the final (fairly likely though).

We are very excited about how everything is piecing together, with only about 8 or 9 days left until launch! We are determined to meet funding so that we can release this game as a free PDF.

Please share and spread the word about VOID Tabletop Roleplaying Game. We really appreciate the support that everyone on WordPress has given us since September when we started this website. We have had over 3,000 views and over 200 comments. We would have never thought that so many people would be as excited as we are to create this game!!

The art is completed by Joanna Barnum.

The cartography is completed by Josephe Vandel.

The music is created by Adrian Von Ziegler.
