The Storm Children of Soporus is a story-driven roleplaying game using this website and email.The basic storyline has a small group of children washing up in a strange sleepy bay that is cut off from the rest of the world and people only by cast-a-ways. Everybody is missing memories and the children are missing more than most! Ten years have passed and it’s been decided the Storm Children should apprentice with some of the villagers to learn useful skills.
There are mysteries in this little bay though, and the Storm Children are starting to realize things are a bit stranger than they seem.
Inspired by 5th Edition Dungeons & Dragons rules, this game will feel familiar to D&D players, but will also have a few differences.
The first is that this is a 0-level game with a very different character creation system. In the beginning, the players can roll up their stats using the standard Strength, Dexterity, Constitution, Intelligence, Wisdom and Charisma using just 3 6-sided dice. Don’t worry, anything less than a 7 is a 7. Also, the stats can go up rapidly as the players find training and experience.
Also just like D&D, you can choose a race from Human, Elf, Half-Elf, Halfing, Half-Orc, or Dwarf. However, no racial modifiers or abilities are applied. As the game progresses, the characters may begin to remember their pasts and these adjustments can begin to apply.
From there, all you get to choose is a name and a general description, no class, no background, no weapons, armor or even a backpack. This is a game where the background is made.
