You can play eight character classes with varying levels of humanity. I have included 3 races from Jack Shear’s Devilmount, because that would be an ideal place to try this out, and his substitute races reinforce the chilly, alien, distant future aspect of the game.
I think there is a lot to love. Wizards can learn their spells or cast out of books, but the energy costs them hit points. Wizards can also use armor and weapons as much as they like, but it interferes with spellcasting. And, they can get high enough level to take the Tests and learn to enchant a staff! All-new magic system and spells, designed to echo but not copy D&D magic.
Martial artists are not necessarily monks, and their speed in combat makes weapons more dangerous. Instead of clerics, you have people with a trace of angelic blood that gives them weird power. And so on!
It is designed to be simple, but fun. I would love to see some reviews.
