About


 The Time is upon our World 

Our world has suffered so much. Ages come and ages gone, eyes of many have seen  suffering, pain, destruction, and total chaos leading lives by the masses into oblivion. For what  purpose? To what good? A future foretold by the Dragon Gods? Bah! That is merely the people being blinded by lore and legend. We control our fate, we control our destiny! If the masses refuse to see it, than their undoing shall be their own. Those which see the way I do will be the survivors, the architects of a new age where all shall prosper and I shall be their guide into this new dawn for I have seen the Aethersphere for what it really is. The true source of all power, the artifact that can create and annihilate, the source of all our legends and myths, the cube of elemental aether otherwise known as the “Aetherial Transponder”  shall be mine for the taking and morphing Theza into the ultimate paradise! After much of endless research I have clues to its whereabouts and I shall venture into the depths of this war torn, pestilence infested world to retrieve it even if it means to end the lives of those  
in the way. This will be the last document of my study and research, with my scythe “Fallen Crescent” in  my hands, all obstacles shall perish before me. Blood must be spilled to reach nirvana in this futile  existence and at long last, I will undo the fates I have suffered along my path in life. I care no longer to leave a legacy in this unforgiving world, I care not for the husks of flesh that wander the surface of this planet and I hold not an ounce of my might back when it comes those who wish to stop me. Let the threads of aether be severed so the end can lead to a new beginning...
-Cavarsh, Fenara Paragon 1440 A.E. During the time known as the “Threads of Aether”
 

 The world is a place called Theza. A world created by five elemental dragon gods and before going into a long slumber they created an artifact known as the "Aetherial Transponder" as a sample of their power which helps regulate the energy and magic of the world. Embark on your own legendary quest to greatness, will you seek out ancient artifacts such as the Aetherial Transponder? Or carve your own path and master the classes to ascend to being a Paragon to go down in history?

Touch of Power is a story telling table top role playing game where one person is designated as the "Saga Master" and the rest of the players create characters using these books to play in the Saga (series of adventures) created by the Saga Master. Players take turns narrating their character's actions while the Saga Master controls the events, monsters, various non-playable characters and the Saga Master sets up challenges for the players to overcome and triumph.

This game uses a "rainbow die" system. Low level characters will start off rolling a single 1d8 plus a low modifier for all stat rolls and higher level characters reach into the d20s.  Touch of Power also has an intricate triple experience system which features: character experience, class experience and weapon experience. Between both books there are a total of 10 basic classes and 10 advanced classes (5 of each between the books) as well as 16 playable races (8 per book). Character creation is simple and broken down to a series of steps which should take around 30 minutes to complete and gives the player freedom on how to build the character's starting stats. Leveling up is every always a set specified number (often awarded after combat).

The funds you contribute will help pay for the remaining art I need to complete both books. I was paying for the art out of pocket but I have run short on funds recently (raising a family is expensive) I want to have both books finished and ready to print by late April-early May so by June I can send out copies and the rewards for those who contributed to this kickstarter. The sooner I can receive funding the sooner I can pay my artists in full (I have 3 artists total) and the sooner they can get this project wrapped up. Thank you all so much for reading about Touch of Power!

Risks and challenges

This game has created a lot of memories for me and my friends who helped shape it over the years and I desire to share it with the world and fellow gamers who like to have fun and enjoy a good story.
Game features unique triple experience point and leveling system, thousands of ways to customize and build characters, loads of gear to discover. Over 125 abilities, magic and skills to do wild things.
In the first book the year is 1430 AE. An ancient tower near the town of Jelk has seen an increase to monsters around it and strange colors has been seen at night from the fifth floor. The great Alenzo Iladrix is looking for adventurers to investigate the phenomenon.
