French Creative Studio Agate Introduces Fateforge, a new RPG and campaign setting for 5th Edition to be Kickstarted in June and prereleased at Gen Con 2019

PARIS, FRANCE (June 10th 2019) – Studio Agate, creator of Shadows of Esteren, the most awarded French role-playing game, presents its new creation, Fateforge: Epic Tales in the World of Eana.

Powered by the 5th Edition ruleset with the addition of many new options, Fateforge features Eana, an entirely original campaign setting. Following the sword & sorcery tradition, the adventurers will travel through grandiose landscapes and interact with exotic, colorful civilizations. By dint of skill, bravery, or cunning, they will overcome increasingly challenging ordeals, and perhaps find their way to the mythical Fateforge and ascend to godhood.

A Kickstarter campaign will be launched on June 24th 2019. The first two books of the series will be available for backing at discounted prices and with exclusive bonuses. The PDFs of the books will be delivered at the completion of the crowdfunding campaign. A 60-page Player’s Guide is already online on DrivetrhuRPG and lets you discover the world of Eana and create your first characters.

Adventurers, the core book of the series, as well as Grimoire, which covers magic and spellcasting, are both scheduled to be prereleased at Gen Con 2019.

“Fateforge is both a passionate homage and the realization of our own vision of one of the oldest, most legendary role-playing games” says Fateforge’s Lead Designer Iris. “Fateforge is its own game, but it can also be used as a campaign setting for 5th edition. It includes many game options, new archetypes, a system to create customized backgrounds, a new class, fifty new spells, and game mechanics inspired from the best of Shadows of Esteren. The modular system in particular lets each group customize the game in accordance to their tastes, ranging from unbridled high fantasy to harsh dark fantasy. The availability and potential of magic is likewise adjustable, from rare and unpredictable to common and pliable.”

A Fateforge adventure is already available, written by Ed Greenwood. With the upcoming Kickstarter, Studio Agate intends to keep working toward the release of the complete series in English. A Bestiary is announced, as well as a book on the mysteries and wonders of Eana: Arcana.
