Superchron fantasy future RPG on Kickstarter!

By on 8 January 2014

Valhallions is proud to announce Superchron their first RPG created by Robert McConvey and Caerys Walsh. Superchron is a fast paced adventure RPG (Role Playing Game) with a completely original and new system. This new system promotes on the spot calls and allows the players to progress immediately and in whatever direction they choose. They have launched this project through Kickstarter in order to raise enough money to work on Superchron full time so that they can complete the writing as well as the art work and it is available now for you to look at in more detail here.

The art style is a combination of American comic books and Japanese manga through the eyes of an Irish artist. Each piece is hand painted by Caerys in colour inks and acrylics. The game is set in the future but at first will feel like a fantasy game with players using basic melee or ranged weapons. As they uncover old tech and scavenge resources they can start crafting and editing more complex and almost steam punk style weaponry to aid them on their adventure. So although there is no electricity or power a crank handled chain gun is more than possible with the right parts and know how. Anything is possible with the right idea and some lucky rolls.

Superchron is a creation of love and adventure. We wanted to instil a sense of grandeur, danger and freedom in every aspect of this game and we feel that we have succeeded. Superchron has been crafted from scratch and everything about it is original content. The main aspects of the game are:

  • an exciting premise based on a scientifically possible apocalyptic future
  • a new critical system that allows for instant character progression
  • an innovative dice pool mechanic that allows for teamwork and outside the box thinking
  • creative freedom like never before for both players and GMs
  • an expansive sandbox for GMs to mould to their whim and guides to make it work

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar "Living" campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave's first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft). Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at dave.mcalister.org.uk and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at DnD5e.info.
