About

The Rage Series of Games takes on a new approach to table-top role-playing games.  The three Core Books (Volume 1 Space Rage; Volume 2 Medieval Rage; Volume 3 War Rage) are our sci-fi, fantasy and modern campaign settings for RPG market.  Unlike other game systems out there ours are designed to be used both seperately as stand alone games but also interchangibly.  Our rules allows for complete mechanical crossover between games.  For the conspiracy theorist: if you want aliens in your modern setting then mix Space Rage and War Rage.  If players want magical fireballs and thunderbolts in their sci-fi game then mix Medieval Rage and Space Rage.  Mix all three together.

(Volume 1) Space Rage brings players access to three galaxies, centered on the Milky Way.  Humans have left the cradle of home and reached the stars. Friends and foes await, but figuring out which is which is often harder than it seems.  A great evil prepares to wage a final war against the rest of the races of the galaxies.  The Daemon have risen and the age the Greys, Humans, Kudzu and Pentarans are at stake.  Volume 1 contains 113 pages of material including over 100 spacecraft, star-fighters and dropships as well arms for ground forces.  Designed for small group play or for a massing of armadas, Space Rage is at home with both.  Character types include over a dozen opportunities for players (from merchants and soldiers to psi-bureau agents and pirates).

(Volume 2) Medieval Rage is basic fantasy setting contain much of what would expect to find in a medieval universe.  Additionally, Medieval Rage contains a specific campaign setting that allows players access to additional materials.  Volume 2 contains over 100 pages of material including over 150 spells, priest powers and psi-talents give the players a wealth of options as well as Character types common throughout the Rage Series.  In addition to Sorcerers and Priests players may choose from a variety of others including Soldiers, Runecasters, Nobles and Pirates.

(Volume 3) War Rage is a near-future modern setting answering the questions of "what if" common in today's world.  Players have the a similar variety of Character type options available in the other Rage Series Core games.  Over 100 aircraft, tanks and naval vessels give players the ability for small group operations standard for any adventuring party of mercenaries and merchants up to full-scale naval and air combat battles between the forces of the world.  Eveyrthing is at your finger tips.  Volume 3 contains 94 pages of material and the ability to add your own history to the modern history of this world or another.

Development of the series has been ongoing over the course of the lst 14 months.  Play tests and focus groups have helped refine the material to its current phase.  Copyrights and ISBN numbers are already in hand for the project to protect the intellectual property.  We are seeking funds to take the game out of the pdf format and place into the hands of players via professional printing and binding services, with an eye on having over 1000 copies of each volume printed (lowering overall costs).  The pre-production versions of all three volumes have been reviewed and can be seen at www.roleplayerschronicle.com .  A small portion of the funds raised will go toward replacement cover art for Volumes 2 and 3 to bring them up to sale quality (though the original cover art will be internally in upcoming Supplements).  Our goal is for the first mass public release of the product at GenCon 2011!
