Upwind RPG project launches on Kickstarter October 11th!

UpwindFrom the partnership of Biohazard Games and Nocturnal Media – the creators of the Blue Planet RPG, the Midnight d20 setting and the renown World of Darkness series – comes the fantastical new game Upwind – a roleplaying fable of lost science, elemental magic and uncharted skies.

Imagine Bakshi’s classic animated film Wizards has a head-on collision with Disney’s Treasure Planet and the resulting fire is put out with a whole lot of Studio Ghibli’s Castle in the Sky. That, in an unexpected, animated mash-up, is Upwind. The game is a narrative style RPG set in a strange alternate world of floating island nations, flying sailing ships, long lost technology, wild elemental powers, looming war and forgotten legacies. Upwind is powered by the Q-system, an original stakes-based, playing card-driven mechanic that gives every encounter consequences with meaningful, narrative-building outcomes. With its unique bidding rules, Upwind plays as fast as you can tell your story.
