Introduction

Rebirth is the story of survival in a world dominated by predator civilizations fighting for existence in a realm created from the shambling remnants of mankind. Rebirth is a dark-fantasy RPG that features a d100 percentile system and and unique professions, all taking place in a setting reminiscent of the middle ages.

Lore

275 years after the end of the world, the land of Kreyo stands divided by seven war-torn nations. Each nation falls under the rule of one of seven great necromancers. The seven who brought a dying mankind to its end. The seven who poured demonic power and new life into its husk. Sar'gon the Diplomat, Nahrun the Student, Narcon the Inventor, Reuce the Surgeon, Kre'uul the Murderer, Daerrus the Master, and Fae'el the God. Each nation is represented by their own culture, a reflection of their necromancer's reason for betraying humanity.

The corpse of humanity rose as the demonic power coursed through their veins, reanimated and reborn in the image of the mankind they replaced.The reborn of Kreyo appear no different than man, except for the mark of their necromancer scarred into their right hand. Cursed with the free will of their predecessors, the reborn fight for survival, glory, fame, riches, power, or whatever they desire. Free from the bonds of sleep, the reborn are not controlled by the waning of the day, though they are not free of the burden of required nourishment.

Playing the Game

Rebirth is a tabletop role-playing game determined to grant diversity to the players, allowing them to navigate a broken world. With 14 base professions and 24 advanced professions, Rebirth rewards diversity in party creation, shedding light on often forgotten roles, such as support and crafting, making them essential to the party's survival, and breathing new life into the ever-present fighters and charismatic manipulators of the role playing genre.

The setting is a dark world, constantly at war both on the bloodstained battlefield and behind the political curtain. The theme of the game is resource management and is displayed through the combat, currency, and crafting systems, rewarding forethought and preparation.

Teamwork and flexibility are integral to survival in Rebirth and one of the major appeals of the game. Mastering synergies between professions can be the difference between life and death. The gladiator, a melee based fighting profession, becomes exponentially stronger when supported by a prophet, a support profession that deals self-inflicted damage to drastically increase the abilities of their allies. The gladiator becomes even stronger when using powerful artifacts, weapons imbued with special abilities such as life stealing attacks, created by the artificer, a crafting profession focused on the creation of artifacts. Unique and in-depth professions allow for complicated synergies between party members

“Absolutely love it. The book is about 50/50 lore and crunch, which works very well to paint the picture of the setting without “Telling you” everything that’s going on in the world verbatim. It leaves much very open for the players in a way I really enjoy. A solid framework without hand holding too much.”

- Nicholas Baughman

"There are a lot of thematic elements in every profession that bring the world to life. Even the currency the players use is the necrotic remains of the dead, bones still tainted with energy. It’s a lot of fun to see all the little things that tie together in the world."

- Jordan Palmer

I'm curious about this game. Can anyone provide a written review?

If the publisher is willing to offer a review copy, I'll post a written, opinionated, but not systematically biased or manipulated review at least based on the text. A genuine and sufficient experience would take a few plays before I'd be willing to comment further.

I'll start by adding that I wish the preview here had the table of contents and introduction included. I did make the effort to search more on the publisher's website. I found a good video of character creation there. That's what piqued my interest and curiosity. There are also per-built characters and some reference handouts.

I wrote this up a while ago.

Disclaimer: I was given a copy of this book to review.

So, having spent a bit of time reading through the book and doing some short one off with friends, I have come to really like the idea behind this system.

Elevator pitch: A game rewarding unique party compositions in a dark and fantastical setting.

The Setting:
Absolutely love it. The book is about 50/50 lore and crunch, which works very well to paint the picture of the setting without "Telling you" everything that's going on in the world verbatim. It leaves much very open for the players in a way I really enjoy. A solid framework without hand holding too much.

-----------------------

The System:
While it's a bit more "Crunch heavy" than most setting my group and I tend to play, it didn't take away from the enjoyability. Being a surgeon is just as viable as being a warrior, is just as viable as being a botanist.

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
