Welcome to the Kickstarter for CORPS 3rd Edition. You may not have heard of CORPS much less its third iteration, so here's a primer.
The name stands for Complete Omniversal Role Playing System, that's right its a multi-setting genre spanning behemoth of a game. Originally made by BTRC (thats the Blacksburg Tactical Research Centre for those who don't know).
The original version of the game was a modern day conspiracy setting, the second edition was expanded and revised to cover a multitude of settings and genres, it also had a nifty rules expansion written by yours truly.
This third edition revises a few rules, adds some new ones, sports a new damage resolution mechanic and expands on areas which the previous editions did not. At present it stands around 300 pages, this will change as time goes on, and will increase rather than decrease. The rules themselves are mostly written, the purpose of this Kickstarter is to raise money to cover the cost of the artwork. As an added advantage backers have the opportunity to playtest the new rules, make suggestions and even pick up a physical copy.
Speaking of artists, have we a treat for you - already signed up for the book are:
John M Kimmins, freelance artist for Applied Vectors, prop builder, modeler, writer and all round genius.
Zach Jaquays, son of the legendary Jennell Jaquays, an exceptionally talented artist and newly signed up to the project.
I feel that both artists bring their own unique qualities to the project, and that the end result will be an amazing sight to see.
Of course we may raise more than our original goal and if we do I present the first two of our stretch goals.
Risks and challenges
The only delays I can forsee are:
Waiting for artwork - I won't let the artists begin work until it becomes clear that their work is funded, so it's possible there may be a little delay.
