ENGN Preview Series 26 – Overlight RPG with Sara Erickson

As we announced last week, we are taking a break from the regular episodes this week after the MEGA two parter that we dropped last week. If you have not done so, please check out the Fantasy Adventure Designer Roundtable we did with a bunch of really cool folks. We will be back next week with a regular episode.

For now, though, we have another kickstarter preview which represents something of a left turn from the products we usually feature. We are happy to bring to you an interview about a brand spanking new RPG system called Overlight, currently running on Kickstarter. This represents the first foray into RPGs for Renegade Game Studios, which will serve both as a standalone product as well as a backdrop for a number of Renegade game products moving forward.

Sara Erickson, Renegade’s Director of Sales and Marketing, drops by the show to talk about the development of the system and what it offers that’s different from other similar products. And, of course, since Jason is a massive RPG geek, he presses Sara for details about mechanisms, potential enemies in the world, what adventures look like in the system, and assorted other nuts and bolts.

    Is this rpg good for solo?

      Not quite yet. This current KS is for a traditional DM/ player setup. But they are open to different things in the future.
