I have a personal connection to this one, no lie. Skye Island is a “crossover point” between Shaintar and Ian Liddle’s fantasy world of Dolonde. Ian’s one of the best people I know, and he’s got a fantastic creative spirit. Definitely take a look at this project.
The 2nd edition of the Synergy Fantasy Roleplaying Game needs artwork, this is how you can help, and get the books at a special price.
This is the second edition of Synergy Fantasy; rebranded as Worlds of Adventure: Fantasy Realms with a host of additional content, rules addition, revisions and expansions. Synergy is the same game system as that found in Blue Planet v.2 adapted for the fantasy genre.
The Kickstarter is to fund full color artwork and production costs for the two core books – the Players Guide and the Moderators Guide. Exceeding the funding goal will open up both stretch goals and further reward levels.
This edition focuses on the world of Dolonde and more specifically Skye island; the remnants of a long dead volcano jutting out from the sea. It is part of a larger chain of land called the Pearl islands, whose nearest neighbor is the elven land of Vaqeon.
Skye is a land of savage jungle elves, pirates, evil necromancers wondrous scenery and great mysteries. Protecting the good, honest folk of the island are the Heroes of Skye, a group of adventurers based out of Lookout Point but active across the entire land.
If you would like a taster of the game system, why not pick up the Worlds of Adventure: Test Drive. It has a streamlined version of the rules, sample characters and a short scenario for you to try them out with.
