Looking for an RPG highly different than what you've played before?  Want an RPG system that new players can learn in a couple minutes?  Then check out Inspiration!

Inspiration is a fantasy deck building tabletop RPG.  It combines the strategic fun of building a deck and uses it as the core character building mechanic. This isn't a CCG or TCG; all the cards needed to play are in this package.  This download comes with the core rules, all 8 core classes, and all 500 power cards for the classes.  It also comes with weapons, magic items, and pre-made monsters.

This is the complete package of a tabletop RPG; the only thing you'll need is a set of standard RPG dice, grid paper for battles, and optional miniatures for each character.

This system is meant to be simple enough that anyone could learn to play, making it a great introduction RPG.  The deck-building system also adds a layer of strategy for veteran RPG players!  The system for roleplaying uses part of the D20 mechanic, with some major simplifications/alterations, making the game accessible for new players.

This fundraiser is an attempt do a lot of things!  I want to see if there's enough interest in the game for me to expand it to make more classes, spread awareness of the game, and spread a lot of fun to a lot of people!  I'd also like to hire an artist(s) someday to add color drawings to each power card.

If you're interested in a one on one strategic TCG, check out my other project, Extraction!

Update 1:

I've been designing some battle maps (1 inch square maps to use with miniatures) that I think will work well for Inspiration fight scenes as well as highly usable for any other Tabletop RPGs you might play. They make great maps for DnD and Pathfinder as well!

By the time this kickstarter ends, I should have 12 Full Color battle maps.

They'll come with the core Inspiration set that you'll get with backing!

Update 2:

Due to the awesome interest shown here on Kickstarter, I'm looking into ways to get hard copies of Inspiration published. I have a few promising leads and will begin the process soon. Once I get the publishing set up, I'll find a way to get discount coupons for anyone who has backed this project prior to me establishing the publishing!

Risks and challenges

Starting an RPG as an independent developer is always challenging. We're talking about a market that giants like Wizard's of the Coast can barely profit in. I'm making this game because I genuinely love tabletop gaming. If this game is going to be flushed out and expanded, it's going to need crowd support.
