From the Publisher's Website:
Top Rope Games is pleased to announce their flagship role playing game The Locus.
In The Locus players explore Illume, a fantastic world in a parallel universe to our own, where magic derived from emotion is woven by powerful mages and sword wielding warriors defend truth and justice. Lost on Illume are people from Earth sent there by an unknown force looking to unbalance the power which connects the two worlds. Armed with the knowledge of the Lost's true source the players must find them and help them return home before their very presence empowers evil sorcerous tyrants who wish to enslave both worlds. Explore ruins of bygone civilizations, discover powerful mystical creatures, and gain insight into their own personalities.
You must find the Lost. Return them to Earth. Do whatever it takes to keep them from falling into the wrong hands.
The Locus features:
- A simple flexible character creation and advancement system that allows you to get into the game quickly
- A unique attribute system that invokes not only the characters physical prowess but his emotional strength as well
- A magic system that allows custom spell creation to deal with any situation that presents itself
- The Variable Dice Pool system where increased skill provides increased consistency and increased chance of critical success, while reducing the chance of critical failure
- A rapid and easily tracked initiative system to streamline combat
The Locus is scheduled to be released 2Q 2011.
