Brian Engard Kickstarts his new RPG ‘Becoming’ with all backers at $1 or more getting a copy of the pre-layout PDF

Brian Engard’s credits include being co-author for the highly acclaimed Bullodgs! from Gallileo Games and a contributing author for Fate Core but he’s now trying to add a new one: Author of Becoming. As seen in the moody video above, Brian Engard is trying to Kickstart his game about “heroism and sacrifice.”

Cool note, Becoming, which is presently on Kickstarter, includes a copy of the prelayout PDF to anyone that pledges at least $1. So, if the system at all seems interesting then it’s hard to pass that up, I reckon (at least it was for me), with $10 being the sweet spot for electronic backers. Becoming is a roleplaying/story game where one player takes the role of a hero on a quest and the other players take the roles of the Fates, constantly standing in your characters way, sounding much like Poseidon constantly churning the oceans against Odysseus’ quest to return home. The goal is to see how far the Hero will bend, what they will have to give up in order to complete their quest. It sounds marvelous and I’m sure I’ll have impressions once I get a chance to give it a readthrough. Engard hasn’t identified stretch goals yet for Becoming, but it looks like that is only a matter of time. It’ll be interesting to see what other developments Engard brings to the table but, in the meantime, I’m looking forward to getting a chance to readthrough the rules and see exactly how his game of suffering heroes works. You can learn more about Becoming over on Kickstarter, which ends on July 6, 2013, or on the official blog. Also, look for my interview with Brian about Becoming in the next few days.

So, what do you all think of Becoming? Are you interested in the concept? Does the Kickstarter for $1 make you more likely to back? Talk about it down in the comments
