    EBERRON Creator's New Card-Based RPG

    Eberron creator Keith Baker is working on a new roleplaying game called Phoenix: Dawn Command. He says that "Phoenix uses a simple, flexible card-based system with hooks that encourage storytelling and shared narrative control. Itís a squad-driven game, and death is part of the character advancement process. Your team can accomplish great things, but youíll be faced with difficult decisions and consequences. Youíll need to push to your limitsÖ and beyond." The game, which features character death as an advancement mechanic, will be hitting Kickstarter in March.

    Keith is an experienced game designer. As well as Eberron (the second-most anticipated on-Realmsian D&D setting after Greyhawk), he's worked on 13th Age, and a bunch of freelance projects for companies like Atlas Games, Green Ronin, Goodman Games, and Pelgrane Press. He's designing the new game with Dan Garrison, under the banner of his new game company, Twogether Studios. Jennifer Ellis is producing, and Grace Allison and Rich Ellis are illustrating.

    One interesting thing about the game is that death itself is a character advancement mechanic. Keith says "As a Phoenix, you learn from each death and return stronger than before. Itís not just about death itself, but how and why you die Ė what your character takes away from the experience. However, you can only return seven times, and you donít return immediately. Rather than trivializing the experience, it allows personal sacrifice to be an important choice; you need to determine how and when itís worth laying down your life."

    More as and when I hear it! (thanks to Jeremy for the scoop!)

    Sounds like Gloom meets X-COM.

    I kickstart way to much, but odds are I'll throw money at this one too.

    Oh yeah, I want this.

    He's a seriously good game designer, as well as world-builder.

    This game sounds really cool. One of the few rpg kickstarters I'll put money towards later this year.
