Maelstrom RPG Kickstarter

There are several Kickstarters big and small that I regret not backing over the last couple of years. Until my friend mentioned it last week Maelstrom might well have been another one for the list.

However, now I'm in at the £30 level for a hardback rulebook and loads of extras from the stretch goals. Even if you never envisage playing the game, some of the extras and add-ons look like they would work well with other systems.

Here's a link to the Kickstarter:

And here's some of the blurb:

The Maelstrom RPG was first published in 1984 and remains a classic to this day.  Fast and innovative mechanics, evocative characters, flexible magic and the preeminent RPG herbal made this a game ahead of its time.

Now it is time to bring this classic game to a new generation of gamers with a brand new edition.   Arion Games are taking the core Maelstrom game and reworking it with:
     Lifepath Character Creation
     Revised and updated Game rules
     Expanded rules for magic, The Maelstrom and the supernatural
     A comprehensive guide to life in 1086
     A complete regional setting

  1. This Kickstarter just gets better. Here's what the latest £6k stretch goal adds to the package:

    ...if in the last frantic few days we can reach £6K, all Hardback or above backers will get a copy of an A2 colour poster map of England in 1086, again by the peerless Steve Luxton. This map will show areas of interest, mystery and danger.
