Back This: Night Shift: Veterans of the Supernatural Wars




Night Shift: Veterans of the Supernatural Wars just launched on Kickstarter today from Elf Lair Games. The game was designed by Jason Vey and Timothy Brannan. Both of them have worked within the RPG industry for some time and have done work for Troll Lord Games, Eden Studios and Palladium Books, as well, as published their own material.

Tim's Other Side blog was a central inspiration for me to start Cross Planes, I liked the tone of his work compared to other blogs I was reading at the time, and I respect him a great deal.

The rules set, known as O.G.R.E.S., is OSR-inspired and is familiar and compatible with earlier editions of DnD and it's many clones.

Jason has an article from his blog, The Wasted Land, that should give people some insight into what direction he is going.  Additionally, if you are a fan of his Spellcraft and Swordplay, Night Shift has conversions to it, as well as ODnD and B/X DnD.

I'm really hyped on this project and urge you to support it.
