Mortal Coil

Coming January 2025

In "Mortal Coil," players delve into a richly detailed world where they take on the roles of Astromancers, noble Knights entrusted with the sacred duty of safeguarding the Mortal Coil from the relentless onslaught of entropy. Set against the backdrop of a universe governed by the Twelve Astrological Houses, this tabletop role-playing game (TTRPG) transcends mere combat and adventure, delving deep into the realms of politics, existential angst, and the essence of humanity.

Each player embodies a member of one of the Twelve Astrological Houses, each House imbued with unique powers, traditions, and philosophies. From the stoic and disciplined Knights of Capricorn to the passionate and adventurous Astromancers of Leo, players navigate the intricate dynamics of their House while facing external threats that seek to unravel the very fabric of existence.

The game's narrative unfolds across the Tapestry of Existence, ruled over and protected by the Twelve Astrological Houses. Players embark on quests to right order and protect the Tapestry from Entropies encroachment. However, the true heart of "Mortal Coil" lies in the personal journeys of the Astromancers themselves.

Politics play a central role as players navigate the intricate web of alliances, rivalries, and power struggles within and between the Houses. Decisions made in the hallowed halls of their Houses' citadels can have far-reaching consequences, shaping the fate of entire civilizations and the Mortal Coil itself.

Yet, amidst the grandeur of cosmic battles and political intrigue, "Mortal Coil" delves into the existential struggles of its protagonists. Each Astromancer grapples with their place in the universe, questioning the nature of destiny, free will, and the meaning of existence. Themes of identity, purpose, and the blurred lines between humanity and divinity permeate every aspect of gameplay, challenging players to confront their inner demons as they confront external threats.

The game mechanics of "Mortal Coil" are designed to emphasize both the grandeur and the intimacy of the Astromancers' journey. Combat encounters are dynamic and strategic, showcasing the diverse powers and abilities of the Houses. Yet, equally important are moments of introspection, where players delve into the psyche of their characters, confronting their fears, desires, and moral dilemmas.

In "Mortal Coil," every decision matters, every action carries weight, and every moment is an opportunity for epic adventure and profound self-discovery. Will the Astromancers rise to the challenge and preserve the Mortal Coil, or will they succumb to the forces of entropy and chaos? The fate of the universe hangs in the balance, waiting to be shaped by the choices of those brave enough to wield the power of the stars.
