What Is The Void RPG System?
The Void RPG System is a project that I have been working on for the past five years. Approximately five years ago I wanted to get into the wonderful world of tabletop role playing games, but in order to do so I needed to convince my group of friends to make the delve with me. Unfortunately none of us had any previous experience in the realm of tabletop role playing games.
When we went to look at various systems all of us were just met with frustration, confusion, and disappointment. Regardless of the system we looked into, none of them seemed to be geared towards players completely new to role playing games. This was the spark that started the development of the Void RPG System.
After realizing that none of the currently available RPG systems were a fit for my group of friends, I began developing the Void RPG System so that we could all have an enjoyable time with the hobby of tabletop RPGs. The first versions of the system were not the best, but they enabled us to actually begin getting a feel for the hobby.
After years of development the system began to take shape into as a more refined and complete product which is designed to help new players, while still remaining enjoyable for veterans of the hobby. After roughly five years of development the Void RPG System is now in a place where I feel confident publishing it to the world. My hope for the Void RPG System is that it provides an easily accessible entry point into the fantastic pastime that is tabletop role playing games.
What Separates Void From The Thousands of Other RPG Systems?
The thing that separates Void from the thousands of other RPG systems available is that the system puts an emphasis on maximizing player interaction. The Void RPG System has a mechanic in place called the Aspect Enhancement system which rewards players for role playing the ups and downs of their character.
The actual role playing component of tabletop RPGs can be a very intimidating to people who are new to the hobby, which is exactly why Void was designed with a reward system which encourages good role playing habits. By having a system which mechanically supports role playing, it removes a great deal of the apprehension that new players may feel when they are first getting into the tabletop RPG hobby.
What Does The Void RPG System Look Like?
For those of you that would like to see some of what this system looks like: Here is a link to a brief system overview which covers the design philosophy of the system and some of the mechanics.

What Is This Project?
This project is the first step in completing a five year journey of mine which has been the development of the Void RPG System. In order to get the Void RPG System ready for publication it needs a defining logo, and unfortunately, as you can probably tell by the banner image for this Kickstarter, professional level graphic design is not in my repertoire of skills. This is where Kickstarter comes into play.
I have contacted a professional graphic design artist who I believe will be a fantastic fit for designing the Void RPG Logo. However, as with any professional, they deserve to be paid. I am looking to acquire the funds in order to pay this individual and begin the first steps into getting the Void RPG System published.
Why Should I Support This Project?
This project has been in development for quite some time, and it is something that I earnestly believe could help introduce new players to the wonderful world of tabletop RPGs. By supporting this project, you would potentially help share the amazing experience that is playing a tabletop RPG with others that have never had the chance to do so before. In order to reach its funding goal and embark on the quest of publishing the Void RPG System, this project only needs 30 people to pledge at the $5 tier. You could be one of those 30 people who helps make this project a reality.
Additionally, once this project is complete, and all of the rewards have been delivered, I will begin another Kickstarter campaign for the Void RPG System itself. However, before I can confidently launch the Void RPG System project on Kickstarter, I need to ensure that it has a proper logo. By supporting this logo project on Kickstarter, not only are you aiding the creation of a fantastic logo, but you are also enabling the Void RPG System to continue on its quest to become a fully fledged, published product.
Risks and challenges
The potential risks associated with this project are minimal to nonexistent. The only potential challenge involved with this project is the delivery date of the finished version of the logo, which may be subject to change. The Void RPG System logo will have to undergo a drafting process with the graphic designer and it may take some time to arrive at a logo which is a perfect fit for the Void RPG System. If any delays should arise from this project, I will be notifying all backers as they come up.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
