THE HISTORY

The year is 2099 the earth has been hit by a freak meteor storm lasting just over 3 days. The vast majority of our civilization is now eradicated. Those few lucky enough to survive now bare witness to the devastation that the storm has wrought. Strange new elements found within the meteors have had bizarre effects on those who have survived. Once passive animals have now turned into ferocious monstrosities. Remaining survivors of the human race fell upon each other, with some killing for sport, while others trying to band together to survive the wastelands. These new elements found within the meteors have peculiar affects on humans. Some gaining the ability to transform their flesh into weapons. Giving some the ability to harvest the raw energy of the elements. While most dying straight out from exposure. 

                                                         Welcome to Mortality.

THE GAME

The System: Mortality uses a D100 system designed specifically for the game allowing fast, smooth, and easy gaming.

Free character progression: Characters have a huge selection of options available to them. In Mortality characters have no set ability path, this allows players to diversify and be unique. 

Character Creation: Creating a character in Mortality is simple. There are no races to choose from instead everyone is human. During character creation you'll be able to choose 3 traits (300+ to choose from!) that define who are and what you stand for. 

Classes: The next step in character creation is choosing your class. Mortality offers 8 unique classes to choose from.

  • The Crusader who has dedicated himself to hunting feral mutants.
  • The Enginarch who can rig up just about anything mechanical.
  • The Evoker who can manipulate the elements.
  • The Warlock who can manipulate the minds and bodies of others.
  • The Ranger who is skilled in all aspects of combat.
  • The Scoundrel who can go undetected and assassinate enemies.
  • The Mutilator who can turn his body into a living weapon.
  • The Morpher who can alter his body to his needs on the fly.

Leveling up: Mortality uses experience points to level up but not in the traditional way. At the end of each session you'll earn a number of experience points, which is used to buy new abilities, stats, skills, etc...

Abilities: The longer you survive in the wastes the stronger you'll become. One of the main things you'll be spending experience points on are abilities. each class has 5 separate ability trees you can choose from, with each tree having 15 unique abilities with 3 upgrades to each ability. That's 75 abilities and 225 upgrades per class.

Realistic Combat: Combat in Mortality is fast, simple, and deadly. Everything poses a threat to you no matter the enemy. Even the most inexperienced survivor can take down a grizzled veteran if they're not careful. Don't forget to take cover!

Custom Tech: Survivors of the apocalypse take personal pride in their scavenged gear and equipment. Every weapon, armor, and piece of tech is fully modifiable! There's also a crafting system for building it from scratch.

Every stat is important!: Every attribute is important, influencing all aspects of your character, this effectively removes the "Dump Stat". Regardless of class every character can benefit from every stat.

Build your own custom vehicle: The world is a dangerous place! Grab yourself a set of wheels and make life a bit easier. Whether it's buying a pre-made vehicle or making your own from the frame up. Speed machine to armored tank, you decide.

Questions: Check out our facebook page for any other information and feel free to message us about any questions you may have!

Playtesting: We have and will continue to throughly playtest the game to ensure the game is balanced and is the best it can be.

Risks and challenges

Why Kickstarter? We're using Kickstarter so that we can get the game out there for the public to enjoy. We also have the highest expectations for the quality of the game and with your help we can make it the best it can be. That being said we will be commissioning multiple professional illustrators for amazing art for mortality.

The rules for the game are mostly finished, leaving just a few remaining to be written. Once that is complete we just have to finish some writing and the book layout and it'll be good to go. The biggest challenge will be for us to meet the completion date of December 2016 as we have the highest expectations for the game. We will not release a product that we feel isn't the best it can be.

Also please take into consideration that shipping to different parts of the world will take different amounts of time.
