Nobilis and Chuubo – superb indie RPGs

Nobilis and Chuubo – superb indie RPGs

by Monday 17 September 2018
In September 2018 we presented the Nobilis and Chuubo Bundle, featuring .PDF ebooks of two landmark indie roleplaying games by star designer Jenna Moran (Exalted, Weapons of the Gods). Among 2,600 rules sets in RPG.net’s comprehensive Game Index, Jenna’s Nobilis, the diceless RPG of demigodlike Powers (think Sandman‘s The Endless or Piers Anthony’s Incarnations of Immortality), ranks #1. And Chuubo’s Marvelous Wish-Granting Engine adapts the Nobilis system for a warm-hearted RPG of heroic innocents in the style of Miyazaki films like Spirited Away and shows like Adventure Time.

Chuubo's Marvelous Wish-Granting Engine coverThere were six titles in our Starter Collection (retail value $50), including the complete 578-page Chuubo’s Marvelous Wish-Granting Engine rulebook (previously presented in our November 2014 Indie Cornucopia +2), its supplements Fortitude: By the Docks of Big Lake and the Techno Player’s Guide, the Chuubo’s Quest Cards and Issue Cards, and the illuminating extended play example Finding Home.

Those who paid more than the threshold (average) price also get our entire Bonus Collection with five more titles worth an additional $55:
    • Nobilis: The Game of Sovereign Powers Second Edition (2002): This .PDF re-presents the gorgeous 304-page “Great White Book” originally by Hogshead Publishing, winner of an Origins Award for Best Graphic Presentation. Includes the free rules expansion Unlikely Flowerings. (We presented the 2011 Third Edition of Nobilis in the Cornucopia +2.)
    • Fortitude: The Glass-Maker’s Dragon: A massive 562-page Chuubo’s campaign, set in the beautiful hometown of Fortitude, that will keep you busy reaching for your dreams for years.
    • Fortitude: The Legendary 139: A campaign about the extraordinary passengers who sailed into port on the day the sun died.
    • The Chuubo’s Halloween Special: A one-shot holiday adventure that introduces the “Fairy Tales” genre of Chuubo’s.
Ten percent of each payment (after gateway fees) went to the charity designated by Nobilis and Chuubo’s designer Jenna Moran, the Trevor Project.
