Can't wait to play, or want to know more? There's a gameplay session going up on YouTube soon and you can find a Q&A session here!

Marked For Death is a FATE Module which lets you play as a group of assassins and choose how to eliminate your targets in hilariously unfair situations!

Marked For Death's gameplay is designed to be a challenging experience, where ridiculous things still happen on occasion.

You are a small group of well-trained individuals going up against a much larger force. Guile and planning are your greatest allies; although hiding behind a plant in an otherwise empty hallway is always an option...

Marked For Death is set in a universe slightly "to the left" of our own - magic exists, and is known to exist, although it is rare. Technology in some areas is a little more advanced than our own - hoverbike and teleporter prototypes exist, but are dangerous and extremely expensive. Using them sometimes has unpredictable results... which just makes it all the more worthwhile!

This game is intended as comedic rather than dark and serious! (well, usually!) Featuring:

  • Fireballs and other magic! 
  • High-value targets! 
  • A total lack of choice in who you kill! 
  • Oh so many total party kills! 
  • And did I mention fireballs?

Using the FATE Core Rule Set with a few modifications to make players more reliant on the rest of their team, Marked For Death is lightweight and extremely easy to learn.

Anyone who knows FATE Core will be instantly at home with the game's rules.

We've thought very carefully about how to present this book to you. 

In order to fit in with FATE Core books better, we've opted for a size equal to the FATE Core Rulebooks and a black and white interior. 

We are also including a Character Creation Booklet that will come digitally with every version. This is a small booklet which will guide any player through Character Creation, meaning the book doesn't have to be passed around the table quite so often! 

We're making this game because we love gaming and we have a really fun game to offer you! 

And, of course: 

Sanchit Sharma, the game's creator, has joined up with Shades of Vengeance to create this game, because it was his dream! 

Shades of Vengeance have thrown their big guns at this module to help make it the best it could be: Ed Jowett (Creator of Era: The Consortium and Era: Lyres) has been working with Sanchit to get the story and modifications to FATE perfected and Sophia Michailidou has done the artwork to Sanchit's specifications. 

We're really proud to have helped Sanchit to create his game! 

$1000 - Army of Assassins! - We'll create you 20 characters, with varying areas of speciality which you can pick up and play immediately! These characters will be publicly available on the website. 

$2000 - Hit List - A campaign of 5 sessions, written by the creator, for everyone who receives the book! (This means 5 extra sessions for anyone who already took a reward with sessions!)

Risks and challenges

There are risks in every project, of course.

However, Shades of Vengeance now has 2 of their own books and 2 books they have assisted other creators with under their belt. They are confident they can bring Marked for Death to a successful and timely delivery!

And, those of you who know Shades of Vengeance will already be aware, if something does go wrong, you'll be the first to know about it!

What remains to be done? Additional artwork, some editing & proofreading, printing and shipping. That's all!
