I picked this up as a community copy, so this review is my way of saying thank you! I've read Lumen games before, but this may be the first I actually play. The classes are really distinct and flavorful; my favorites are probably the Ancient and the Marksman. The sample adventure is really well set-up as a good intro and to accommodate a variety of groups and play styles. Lumen is a really good fit for the themes and tone of the movie, and I think it might be fun to pair the game with Thousand-Year-Old Vampire as a way to flesh out what your immortal was up to throughout their life when they weren't fighting.
Deathless: Deluxe Edition
A downloadable game
"We are immortals. Mercenaries. Warriors. We can't die. We live in the shadows, doing our part to help make this world a better place. When we suffer a mortal injury, we just... get back up. Our consciousness returns, our wounds heal, and we're back in the fight, just like that."
"Everything that lives never lives forever. Even us. One day, your wounds just stop healing. We don't know when. We don't know why. Every death could be the one..."
As immortal warriors in an increasingly modernizing world, embark on dangerous missions to right the world's wrongs and participate in what many would call modern fairy tales.
Included in the Deluxe edition that was not present in the base game:
- 4 new classes, including the drone-wielding Techno and the team-bolstering Synergist
- A premade adventure
- Optional rulesets to further enhance your DEATHLESS experience
- Minor rule revisions for balancing
In this game, you will:
- Go on daring clandestine missions to protect the world from injustice
- Play as immortal warriors from all eras of history in the modern world
- Experience tight, cinematic combat with the LUMEN system
- Choose between 10 different classes: Ancient, Daredevil, Duelist, Leader, Marksman, Newbie, Paladin, Pragmatist, Synergist, and Techno
Inspired by Greg Rucka's The Old Guard, this RPG is meant to capture the spirit of both the comics and their film adaptation. Create your own immortals and fight for a better world!
