Preferred Pronoun Set: he/him/his/his/himself


I'm posting to let you all know about a game that Magic the Gathering players tend to really enjoy: True Messiah!
True Messiah is a deck-builder and strategy board game of surreal religious horror, with area control, spatial tactics (like flanking), and cards that behave a lot like Magic the Gathering spells.

The premise:

Quote:
Years ago, scientists constructed the Belief Engine, a machine that warps reality to match peoples’ most strongly held beliefs. The machine was turned on for testing, but it proved too sensitive: widespread belief in the depravity of man and imminent social collapse suddenly took on the full force of objective fact. Without resort to a shared external reality, civilization crumbled like a sand castle in the tide.

From the ruins have now arisen cults led by charismatic figures possessed of seemingly divine powers derived from the still-functioning Engine. You are one such a figure—the true one, the Messiah. It is God’s will that you build temples and marshal followers, then mold their beliefs to perform miracles and destroy your rivals. They’ll be doing the same, but don’t worry–God is on your side…

True Messiah is on Kickstarter for the next 20 days. I figured some of you folks might want to check it out!

I just have to say that is one juicy premise; forbidden Planet meets apocalypse cult. I'll take a looksie.

*"To YMTC it up" means to design cards that have value mostly from a design perspective. i.e. you would put them in a case under glass in your living room and visitors could remark upon the wonderful design principles, with nobody ever worring if the cards are annoying/pointless/confusing in actual play
