Only two days left on the Polaris RPG Kickstarter !!

After almost two years of preparation, Black Book Editions is proud to announce the launch of the Polaris RPG Kickstarter.

Link to the Kickstarter project page:

Please join us in this adventure and help fund this beautiful game, for the first time available in English!

The Polaris RPG is set in a far future where the world above ground has become uninhabitable for the human species. Human beings have found refuge in the depths of the ocean, where they try to somehow survive in spite of the many difficulties they encounter in this hostile environment. The species’ degeneration (characterized by the increasing number of sterile individuals and various genetic mutations), the perpetual wars that have ravaged entire colonies, the monsters, and, above all, the difficulty of exploiting natural resources are the immediate problems faced by this civilization.

In this new world of silence and darkness, players can choose to become agents of one of the underwater factions, mercenaries working to keep afloat, or freelancers trying to establish their own communities. No matter which side they pick, they will discover that nothing is completely black or white, and that humankind will need to unite against a common adversity if it wants to survive. Meanwhile, they will have to fight against all odds and gear up as best they can, buying precious breathing mixes or fluids. They will need to tinker, patch up, and stitch together their submarines. Luck may smile upon them when they discover brand-new equipment or one of the stashes left behind by the ominous Empire of the Geneticians. Their fate will be much darker if they happen to stumble upon raiders or pirates. Adventurers will, however, get a chance to gain fame and even influence the world’s destiny through their actions and discoveries. Humankind is in need of heroes, and empires can sometimes be born from simple ideals. All these elements and many others make up the backdrop of this universe in which one great mystery prevails: the Polaris Flux.

In addition to funding the project (which we'd love you to obviously), you can also help us by spreading the word! Please forward this information to your friends and contacts, share the Kickstarter's page on social media (Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Pinterest, Reddit, Tumbler, etc). Black Book Editions is not established (yet) outside of the French speaking world, so any help will be not only greatly appreciate, but will also benefit all the backers by unlocking great Stretch Goals.

Feel free to join us and ask questions on the Kickstarter page. Also remember that, until March 17th (two days from now), you can still download for free the beta preview of the Core Rulebook:1 for Polaris RPG from DriveThruRPG (link), 280 gorgeous pages describing the world and game system of the science-fiction, post-apocalyptical roleplaying game of the Deep!

Only Two days left on this Kickstarter! It is fully funded, and the unlocked Stretch Goals have greatly improved the "bang for your buck" for backers. If you haven't joined the project yet, please do so now! The next few Stretch Goals are scheduled every 2,000 euros, so they are going to go very fast. The very last scheduled stretch goals will grant for free the PDF of the next Polaris RPG supplement when it is released in 2017: Creatures (a 200+ pages compendium of the beasts and monsters of the Deep).
