Aether is a card based Fantasy TTRPG that combines the narrative character focus of Fate and PBTA (Powered By The Apocalypse) games with semi-tactical combat reminiscent of d20 grid based TTRPGs. Players will create Aetherborn, characters who have learned to tap the power of their own souls and go on various adventures that help them define what they consider heroic on their own terms. 

You choose everything from your character's fate, to what they value most, to what they try to hide, and then your play group will collaboratively build a setting with as much or as little detail as you want to help the Narrator (GM) give all of you a place to start. The game is built to make your character choices matter, as each Goal, Value or Destiny you set becomes your way to earn Experience to grow stronger, or earn Limit Breaks to succeed in dire moments. 

The game also includes a full suite of tools to guide new Narrators (Game Runners) get used to the flow of gameplay, planning encounters and building their own monsters to use (complete with random generators).

Community Copies

Every purchase of Aether goes towards giving anyone who wants to play the game but maybe can't afford it the chance to try it out. Community copies are free, and each purchase adds 1 to the pool so it's like you're buying a copy for a friend! 

I also have a Ko-Fi goal set: every $100 that's donated will add 5 copies to the pool, so if you take a copy and feel inclined to give back, but the price is a bit high, you can still contribute and keep things going. If you want to donate you can do so here: https://ko-fi.com/eldritchcrow
