"The spiritual successor to Amber Diceless Role-Playing"
- Dominic McDowall-Thomas of Cubicle Seven Entertainment
This world is but one of untold many, a flux of chance caught between shadow and light. It is a world poised between great powers that shape and define all matter, one of many battlegrounds in an epic struggle between form and cacophony. The lords and knights in this battle move between realms with impunity: they are the creators, shapers, and destroyers of worlds.
In Lords of Gossamer & Shadow, the player-characters are agents caught up in this immense, multi-dimensional struggle. Born into it, their birthright is one of unimaginable power... and with it great danger! They will bear unique and idiosyncratic magical artifacts, command legions drawn from the myriad of otherworlds, and wield incredible powers that alter the very substance of reality. They are players in a Machiavellian conspiracy with the greatest of stakes, and arrayed against them are the deadliest of foes... each other!
Lords of Gossamer & Shadow (Diceless) is an original sourcebook and roleplaying game using Erick Wujcik's diceless rules system, the same system that powered Amber Diceless Role-Playing. Lords of Gossamer and Shadow will be a standalone product, but is fully compatible with the existing rules system and can be readily used in new and existing campaigns.
Manuscript is completed and edited, with initial layout near completion, we need an estimated 15+ pieces of additional artwork to complete this project. 100% of the initial goal will go toward purchasing this artwork. A percentage of any money earned over that amount goes to the estate of Erick Wujick via our licensing agreement with Diceless by Design the current publishers of Amber Diceless Role-Playing. (Special thanks to them for letting us do this project).
