The first batch of pages (14 of 36) has returned from editing and all necessary changes have been made to the final document.
Between Sun & Shadow adds 58 new Traits for Tiny Dungeon, including a powerful set of Traits known as Carving (see Preview #02). Here's a list of the (non-Carving) Traits:
Between Sun & Shadow introduces a powerful set of Traits known as Carving. These Traits allow Adventurers to manipulate elements, energy, people, and even time and space. Carving was inspired by the magic system found in Brandon Sanderson's Mistborn series.
There are 16 Carving Traits divided into four main categories. Each Carving Trait allows a character to manipulate one specified "thing" – fire, light, emotions, space, etc. More powerful effects can be created by Charging (a new special Action) before attempting the feat.
Space Carving, for example, allows Adventurers to teleport themselves and others. Without a Charge, a GM might allow a character to Test to teleport a few feet away, or the character could cause something or someone else teleport a few feet. If the character Charges for several Actions, she could teleport herself or something else a further distance, or could teleport several things a short distance.
Here's a look at one of the new player races from Between Sun & Shadow, the Ek Ek. This is just the flavor text, no crunch.
Ek Eks are small gregarious bird-like humanoids which stand between 3 and 4 feet tall. They have the torso and arms of a human, and the legs, head, and wings of a bird. Ek Eks are a bit awkward on the ground, but are extremely agile flyers.
As a right of passage, all Ek Eks spend at least one year traveling the Eternal Empire, and cannot return home until they have discovered their purpose in life. To find the answer to such a profound question, Ek Eks are willing to try almost anything at least once – a habit they often continue for the rest of their life.
Generally found living in the windy peaks of Cyran’s Crown, the few Ek Eks that call one of the Seven Jewels home favor the soaring towers of Celeiros.
Tiny Frontiers wrapped up it's Kickstarter campaign with all stretch goals achieved. Congratulations to Gallant Knight Games! Now the wait for the finished product begins.
The 36 page print and play PDF is in final editing. Once back from the editor, it won't take long to wrap things up. Check back soon for some previews.
Between Sun & Shadow will require the use of Tiny Dungeon, which is on sale for just $2.99. You can get it directly from Smoking Salamander, and it is also available through RPGNow and DriveThruRPG at the same price.
