On June 4th, 2018 Limitless Adventures will be launching a Kickstarter for “a new kind of 5E game”. This looks pretty promising, especially for groups that like 5E rules, but want to try out some other genres. Now you can dip into a new genre (or sprinkle some stuff into your fantasy game) without needing to learn new rules and buy a bunch of new books.
Here’s some info from the press release.
5th Evolution (5Evo) takes the wildly popular 5E game mechanics and applies them to new genres. 5Evo products are a marriage of comics and roleplaying with each book divided into three sections.
- Part 1: the comic. Each 5Evo book opens with a comic that GMs will share digitally with their players prior to the gaming session. These comics serve to introduce the genre and setting, as well as to get players invested in the coming adventure.
- Part 2: the adventure. The second section of the 5Evo book is a one-shot adventure, complete with pregenerated characters, that picks up where the comic left off.
- Part 3: the source guide. Finally, the third section of each 5Evo book is a source guide that gives the GM the monsters, equipment, and characters to create their own adventures in that particular genre.
The best part? All 5Evo products are completely compatible. Want to have space marines fight a T-Rex, or see how your wizard would fare against a machine gun-toting mech? Well you can do that and more with 5Evo.
