Legendaria: Messenger Roleplaying Game

$1,321

27

Perfect for those that love roleplaying, but struggle with finding the time to get together with friends or to dedicate hours to a session.

You're able to play with people around the world, via text messaging. The system is designed specifically for it. 

Also, the game is designed to be played through one action during the day and one action during the evening/night, allowing even people with incredibly busy schedules to play. 

Legendaria™ is played through a mobile device, using your preferred messaging service (i.e. Facebook Messenger, Discord, Text Messaging, etc.)

This game is not an app.

In this game, each player secretly plays a Legend from throughout history. 

This Legend can be anyone from Spartacus, to King Midas, to Alice from Wonderland! 

Players will have to find balance between investigating other players, going on quests to obtain new items, and prevailing over difficult battles, in order to become victorious! 

Note: This game is usually played over the course of multiple days. Though, for recording purposes, it was much easier to record a single gameplay session, where we played in one sitting, instead of over the course of a week.

  •  Roleplay On The Go: It's like playing a tabletop RPG with friends, but on your time throughout the week.
  •  On Your Time: Busy? No problem! You can put in a few minutes or a few hours each day. The choice is yours. It's open to your schedule!
  •  Great Value: Multiple Legends, variants, classes, skills, and more, mean this game can be played hundreds of times, each experience different than before! 
  •  Looking for Players?: We have you covered. We have a Discord with players eager to play all the time! 
  •  Easy to Play: We've had people of several ages and backgrounds play Legendaria. The game is built to be extremely easy to play. 

The World Master

Some may say the "GM," but we call them the World Master (WM). The WM is the narrator of the story. They are also the one to answer your questions and to determine how events play out, if there are any discrepancies. They arbitrate the rules. They also roll for each Legend and determine their successes and failures accordingly. They weave together the story for all to enjoy. Be sure to thank your World Master after the game is complete! 

Send your WM your preferred three classes out of the following: Warrior, Berserker, Paladin, Assassin, Reaper, Striker, Druid, Summoner, and Wizard.

Your WM will send you your class and different Legends to choose from. Choose the one that suits you best—this will be the Legend you will be playing in this game! In addition to choosing your Legend, you may choose a starting location out of City, Study, Underground, or Wildlands. If you do not choose, you will have a location automatically assigned to you based on your Legend.

Your selected Legend will display all of the information you will need on your character sheet. Be sure to save it so you can reference it! 

Your World Master will be sending every participant the rules of Legendaria for the players to read over (if they don't already have them). The WM will also declare which social media platform the group will be playing on and what time slots the game will be played. Our standard time slot is from 10:00 a.m. - 10:00 p.m. Day 1 (round 1) begins at 10:00 a.m and ends at 10:00 p.m. Night 1 (round 2) will start at 10:00 p.m. and go to 10:00 a.m. This cycle continues for an average of seven days before the game is completed.

Play At Your Own Pace

While the game may start at 10:00 a.m., that doesn’t mean you have to take your action at 10:00 a.m. Some people may have to work until 5:00 p.m. before sending in their action for the day, and that’s okay!

Also, feel free to mute the group chat if it’s becoming too much for you. When you’re ready, just scroll until you see your WM’s messages. If you feel the chat is getting too out of hand, please contact your WM directly and speak with them politely about it. 

Taking Turns

Each Legend takes one action per round, choosing from the “Action” page. The World Master resolves each action and informs players what took place.

A series of investigations and combats will ensue until one Legend is left remaining. They will have the honor of calling themselves the True Legend! 

The World Master must always be in all game chats occurring.

Add to your game's story by using scenarios. These are gameplay variants that put your Legend in the middle of an interesting moment of the past, present, or the future, such as the fall of Camelot, or the Salem Witch Trials! 

There will be a central conflict, unique Legends of that realm, mystical quest items, and more! 

There are nine total classes, each belonging to one of three major archetypes. You have the Fighter, Rogue, and Mage archetypes.

Fighters
Specialize in melee combat and often have high physical attack and defense. They are bruisers and hard to take down in combat. Rogues and Mages will often need to find less direct approaches to win an encounter against a Fighter.

  •  Berserker: Defined by relentless rage. 
  •  Paladin: Defined by honor and holy sword skills.
  •  Warrior: Defined by bravery and combat prowess.
     

Rogues
Specialize in singling out targets one by one and eliminating them, often having high stealth and investigation. Many Rogues have a significant advantage at gathering information on their enemies and using their weaknesses against them.

  •  Assassin: Defined by their swiftness and perception.
  •  Reaper: Defined by their dark powers.
  •  Striker: Defined by their long range precision. 

Mages
Specialize in the magical arts with a high magic attack and defense. Mages offer the most variety. Some spells will allow them to transform the terrain, while others will allow them to cast devastating fireballs or poisonous gas.

  •  Druid: Defined by their connection to both the natural and supernatural.
  •  Summoner: Defined by their ability to summon.
  •  Wizard: Defined by their wit and magical capabilities.

I've done a PDF release already with Otherworlds: A Dam Shame. For our artist, we are using Abby Edwards, who has been consistent with us.

I have no doubt this project will be done efficiently and exceed your expectations.
