Renegade Games will release the fantasy role playing game Overlight, designed by Paul Alexander Butler and George Holland, in August.
Set in the fantasy realm where the world has been fractured into seven continents which hang, stacked, in the sky. Each continent is called a Shard, and each has evolved its own culture, and in some cases, dominant species that differ greatly from one another. Travel between Shards is difficult, but not impossible. Overhead the Overlight shines on all seven Shards, though there is no sun or moon. Each culture responds strongly to a specific color and virtue of the Overlight.
Players are Skyborn, members of disparate cultures who want to make the world a better place, and who also know how to manipulate aspects of the Overlight into abilities called Chroma.
The 300-page hardcover full-color rulebook contains everything a player needs to create a character, give them skills and Chroma powers, and begin on epic adventures. Various multi-sided dice are used to determine outcomes of events in the game.
