A game with a laser-like focus on helping you step into your fantasy adventurer's shoes for a rivetingly immersive experience, Soul's Calling will put the magic back into roleplaying for you. It's all about how to most fully suspend your disbelief that your adventurer is who you are. This book contains all the rules and setting material essential for running or playing the Soul's Calling tabletop RPG. More or less everything about this game is designed to help you suspend your disbelief in being an adventurer in the fantasy setting of the Enshrouded Lands, where magic's hidden from ordinary folk. The game encourages a slightly actor-ish style of roleplay, bringing aspects of live roleplay to your living room. Storygamers and wargamers are accommodated despite the game's dedicated focus on immersion. The text in the book is mainly in OpenDyslexic font. A free PDF containing most but not all of the content of this publication is planned, on the footing that it's a playtest edition. There are placeholder pages where the artwork is intended to go in the final release.

Sadly there’s no index for the playtest edition of the game yet. However I do intend to make a PDF index of the print-on-demand playtest edition softcover book available if the game receives sufficient interest to justify the work. The final release of the Basic Handbook will have an index.
Looking for playtesters for the Implodarc Tabletop RPG. If you'd like to playtest it and post public feedback or an AP thread, ask me for the private link to download it, or I can e-mail it to you. At least compared to my usual stuff, it's meant to be simple and quick to play with quick CharGen.
