In this nautical expansion for Torchbearer, players must keep their ship fueled and their crew fed as they sail into strange waters. After facing bizarre monsters, hostile ships, and rifts in reality, players can plunder the ruins of an old empire and hopefully make it back to port with a few coins to their name. Designed by Mythcreants’ own Oren Ashkenazi, Rising Tide will bring a gothic steampunk adventure to your table.
Purchase includes a 189-page full-color digital rulebook and interactive sheets. As an expansion, the Torchbearer core rulebook is required for play.
The mechanics of Rising Tide allow strategic management of the players’ vessel and its resources. Players are given numerous options for customizing and upgrading their vessel based on the interests and strategies they choose to pursue. A Rising Tide group may want libraries and laboratories to study the strange phenomena they encounter or weapons and armor to defeat opponents.
Following the innovative resource management of Torchbearer, players supply their ship with resources like food and fuel in port and then engage in calculated risk-taking to support their venture. After facing harrowing occurrences and close encounters with enemies, the group may gain ship conditions like Failing Power or Mutinous Mutterings. If their voyage is successful, they’ll have enough treasure to repair their ship and set sail again.
Rising Tide is designed to work for a variety of play styles. The nautical steampunk setting is flexible enough to allow game masters to fill in their own story while skipping all the hard work involved in creating conflicts and rewards for players. Players can take quick character classes or customize their skill options. They can ponder over their first vessel or use the pre-built starter ship to set sail right away.
