The world of Glimpse the Beyond is very much like the real world on the surface. Countries, politics, major religions and popular culture are virtually indistinguishable from the world outside your window. Beneath the normal facade of daily life, lurking in the shadows and hiding under the cover of night, dark forces reach into the world trying desperately to get a foothold. Most humans never encounter these dark forces. Of those few that do, the majority are driven mad.
Glimpse the Beyond is a Role-Playing Game in which players assume the roles of Magi, rare individuals who study the arcane arts in an attempt to understand and possibly control that which Should Not Be.
Glimpse the Beyond Second Edition is an expansion and refinement of the concepts and systems put forth in the Electrum Best-Selling first edition ruleset. With Glimpse the Beyond Second Edition we clarify and expand various elements of the setting, delving further into the secrets of the Magi, examining past, present, and possible future encounters between humanity and the Things that Should Not Be, and present a new, more flexible system to help you tell stories of Cosmic Horror and Urban Legend. With setting material written by the AMAZING CJ Hurtt, art by the INCREDIBLE Mary Madewell, and an updated system by CJ Hurtt & Travis Legge.
The primary goal of this Kickstarter is to breathe life into the Glimpse the Beyond Second Edition corebook, a 136 page, full color, premium hardcover rules and setting manual that will contain everything you need to explore the world of Glimpse the Beyond.
Beyond that basic goal, we have a number of stretch goals lined up, including a Savage Worlds version of the setting, additional adventures, an expanded Bestiary covering all manner of Urban Legends and Things that Should Not Be, and a short film set in the world of Glimpse the Beyond from writer/director Travis Legge
We have some amazing plans for Glimpse the Beyond Second Edition, and we would love for you to be a part of bringing this game to life! Join us!
Risks and challenges
Every project comes with its own unique risks and challenges, and Glimpse the Beyond Second Edition is no different.
However, at the time of this project launch the basic text of the book is about 95% complete, with a few refinements being made to the system segments of the rules.
Travis Legge has 15+ years of experience in bringing tabletop roleplaying games to fruition via Aegis Studios. Being intimately familiar with the challenges, delays, and difficulties inherent in such ventures, we are extremely confident that we can rise to the occasion to deliver a beautiful, functional, and fun product on time!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
