Celestian Tales Looks To Break The RPG Mold

March 7th - via:
Oh, great, here we go, another boring, role-playing game. I bet I’m the chosen one, right? Gonna go fight a dragon or stop the big mean evil sorcerer? I bet there will be some goblins and maybe a giant rat or 3. Wait… Wait just a second… This RPG claims to be different. It claims to have a refreshing story, with less explored themes? The moral grey area of “right” and “wrong” is brought into question in a tale of betrayal and questionable justice over the course of three decades? It appears to be so, and the package this shining promise might come in is called Celestian Tales: Old North. (Read More)
