What is Shattered Vistas?
Shattered Vistas is a game about life. Life that sucks hard and is an uphill battle, possibly filled with eldritch horrors and ninjas.
In Shattered Vistas, reality is *broken*. The world’s ended, it’s up to you to clean up the mess, or at least hold things off as long as you can. The Vistas are a dark place, and they get a little worse every day.
As a hero, you go into dungeons, kill things, and take their stuff. But its more than that. The things that you fight are bound into the fate of the world. The more you confront monsters in dark caves, the more you confront intrinsic laws that govern life and bind everyone into misery. Can you throw everything away for the sake of others?
As a player, you have hardcore resource management options. Think the hidden combat orders of Burning Wheel or Diplomacy combined with blind bidding and lists of kewl powers. Also buckets of dice. I love me some rolling of buckets of dice.
Does this appeal to you?
Is there anything that seems particularly problematic?
