SWORDSFALL - AN AFROPUNK SCI-FANTASY SETTING
Swordsfall is a setting born from a mixture of love and frustration with fantasy lore. The focus point of a lot of the Low or High Fantasy that we have come accustomed to all has a distinct Eurocentric flavor to it.
It's been something that a lot of us have grown up with and enjoyed over the years.
Geek Native - Swordsfall: Afropunk, African-cyberpunk, RPG setting kickstarts in just an hour
One of our first write-ups was a preview from the online blog site Geek Native. They do a good job of summarizing the Kickstarter and getting it hype!
Swordsfall is as much an art book as it is an RPG and the Kickstarter is to fund that art. The setting came from Brandon Dixon’s frustration that so much of fantasy lore, whether it high fantasy or low fantasy, was Eurocentric in flavour. He set up a Patreon and a World Anvil to share Swordsfall. That’s now worth at least $324 a month in Patreon backers, so there’s clearly demand, and a Kickstarter feels like a sensible next step. You can follow the progress online.
