The Shadow of Yesterday
« on: July 26, 2008, 11:11:57 AM »
Here's another little indie game I've run across that looks like a lot of fun!  It also looks like it would work well with a rotating GM.

"The Shadow of Yesterday is pulpy romantic sword-and-sorcery at the end of one world and the beginning of the next. This game melds the best of standard fantasy role-playing and a hard-charging narrative engine. The revised version of this game, out now, focuses even more on mechanics that make your story zing off the table and into your imagination.

Set in a post-apocalyptic fantasy world where the creation of a moon has ravaged cultures and thrown the fate of the earth into question, TSOY is like a Weird Tales contribution written by Emily Bronte."

--from the TSoY homepage

and a freebie version of the rules here...

For char-gen purposes I suggest either the cheat sheet

or the Lifepath system

There are also a number of fan adaptations for a variety of other settings  :)  Just in case the Conan/Xena/Talislanta thing doesn't do it for someone.

Shadows of the Yesterday is among the games I'm intrigued in and would like to play/run someday, but haven't yet managed to. So interest there is ...
