The Game's Core Values
Intuitive: 

We are building a system which provides an intuitive and instinctive style of play.

How we will achieve this:

 

  • Focus on storytelling and world building inside the game and building detail in the narrative.
     

  • Creating and maintaining a fluid roleplay format with plenty of opportunity for personal interpretation and creative expression.

In order to construct the best game we can muster, we've created a set of core values and principles on how we run our game.

Unobtrusive:
Immersive:

We believe our rules should be designed to be a framework on which the experience can grow instead of hampering gameplay.

How we will achieve this:

  • Maintaining a fair, balanced and minimalistic rules set which helps facilitate a wide range of interesting play styles.

Crafting a system which cultivates an immersive interactive narrative experience.

How we will achieve this:
 

  • We will pride ourselves in not only rich and well constructed plot but effective set dressing, costumes, monsters and NPCs.
     

  • Maintain a balance of political aspects, combat, mystery, horror and intrigue to nurture many different styles of roleplay.
     

  • Crafting personal story lines for players based upon submitted background to further engagement with the story as a whole.
