It's *World Wednesday and I thought I'd kick things off with a plug for the latest Powered By The Apocalypse game I've decided to back on Kickstarter.
Uncharted Worlds is a space opera themed hack of the Apocalypse World system, with a new modular approach to character creation which allows players to construct their own Archetype based on their career and origin, rather than being limited to selecting a specific playbook. It also has a faction system which allows the players to affect the rise and fall of different organisations within the universe they create together. From what I've seen in the preview chapters and the How-To-Play videos the creator (Sean Gomes) has been posting, it looks like it's going to be really good. Plus, it has some cool artwork from Juan Ochoa, who has also been doing artwork for the upcoming Urban Shadows PbtA game.
The project is funded already, but there are still some pretty awesome stretch goals to unlock. I'll be happy if we manage to unlock the $10,000 goal which adds an expansion for character creation which offers options for creating non-human (alien, mutant, robot, etc) characters, but the character creation app at $12,500 would be kinda cool as well.
Go check it out and if you like what you see, hopefully you can add some more pledges to what's already been contributed.
