About the game:
Blood and Doom is an immersive fantasy RPG unlike any you have seen before, set in the captivating and wondrous world known as Athyr. Get ready to discover a realm shrouded in mystery and legend. The game will take you on a journey from the misty jungles of Ishta to the arid deserts of Ethennia and beyond, where ancient ruins and forgotten tombs hide dark secrets of the past.
From out of the secluded corners of towering cities and subterranean complexes, twelve vile cults are corrupting land, sea, and sky. Their unhallowed chants and perverted rituals call to the unfathomable extradimensional beings known as the Heralds of Doom, as their disciples gather in the dark to perform obscene rituals that will bring death and destruction to the world.
Blood and Doom offers a fast-paced, operatic experience with cinematic action and intuitive mechanics. Easy to learn and highly customizable, the game will appeal to both to newcomers and veteran players looking to engage in expansive campaigns.
Blood and Doom uses a player-facing d10 dice pool system and mechanics that reflect its gritty and adventurous setting. Fuel your Powers and Magic with the essence of Athyr itself as you embody one of 18 unique Archetypes such as the Gladiator, Vanguard, Stargazer, Mystic or Nightstalker. One of you will take on the role of the Doomsayer (known as the GM or DM in other games) and orchestrate the many challenges and obstacles on the adventurer’s path to glory.
