Soulbound: Dark Industrial Fantasy BETA

Suggested Price $3.00

Soulbound is tabletop game about wielding randomly generated, arcane weapons which are bound to one's spirit. It is set in the golden age of invention, a time plagued by giant fauna and corrupted demigods. As hunters of the inhuman it is your duty to slay these beasts. 

In Soulbound players assume the role of wielders, regular humans who have been bestowed unique weapons with supernatural powers. A wielder is no one kind of person. They are heroes and villains, thieves and saints. The universe has granted a small population with these soulbound weapons, roughly every one in one-hundred people, but how each person chooses to use their gift is what determines their fate. Such people live in turmoil, shunned by those who fear their powers and controlled by those who wish to abuse them.

The game has been made with an original setting and unique rules for a complete product, no supplements necessary!

  • Played with Six-sided Dice - Soulbound is played using only six-sided dice. The rules are quick to learn, rolls are measured by counting a number of successes, similar to predecessors like Shadowrun.

  • Billions of Weapon Combinations - Weapons, also known as bonds, are randomly generated by rolling dice. From a list of 100 weapons, 3 distinct builds, and 36 arcane powers there are literally billions of combinations, making each character’s weapon truly unique.

  • Organic Growth - Rather than progressing along a predetermined route characters in Soulbound grow organically. New magic powers are gained by slaying corrupted enemies, and players must roll each level to learn new skills and tricks.

  • Hex-grid Combat - Soulbound is designed to be played on a hexagonal grid, with specific rules for fighting against many of the large beasts one will face. This isn’t necessary of course, the combat is just as fun in the mind’s eye if a Storyteller chooses to play it as such.

  • A Dark Fantasy - The plane is Solum is one wrought with struggle and despair. Humanity has, by matter of impending extinction, been forced into vertical cities with towering walls. Beasts which hide behind masks of bone, deceivers, and shapeshifting demons, the Akuma, lurk in the shadows as an incomprehensible and ever present threat. These foes will not be easily slain, and players can expect to perish quickly if they are not well prepared.

  • The World of Solum - Soulbound takes place on the plane of Solum, a vast land which has been roughly divided into six nations. Primium, Uhyre, Agrewin, Qray Ralim, Rajan, and Sozo each possess their own culture to serve as the backdrop for endless adventures.

  • Hunting Houses and Trades - In lieu of traditional classes players may opt to join one of 3 Hunting Houses. Each of these houses then branches into 3 Hunting Trades for a total of 9 Trades between all houses. These academies provide indispensable hunting to gear to those who wish to brave the dangers outside of the walls.

  • Industrial Era - Soulbound takes place in an industrial golden age, where ingenuity is key for survival. In addition to the technological wonders offered by the hunting guilds players may purchase upgrades for their weapons and build their armor sets piece by piece.

  • Arcane Abilities - By using their weapons players may conjure simple arcane tricks, easily produced effects they’ve learned on their own, or devastating arcane powers, gifted to them from another realm. When slaying especially dangerous foes characters even have a chance to become mutated by corrupted energy, gaining all new abilities.

Two things:

One, thank you for making eBook formats for this. Every game publisher should do this.

Two, at first glance this looks really cool! I'll be looking forward to seeing a kickstarter or other retail release for this!

Thank you!! I know the eBook is little janky in places but I'm glad you're getting use out of it. I plan on having people play the game and getting feedback before doing another kickstarter, but the patreon (/soulboundrpg) is always open!

Any chance for a print version? That file size isn't going to work for me.

Hey Derek! Not sure why it's listing it as a 1.6 Gb game on the side bar, I swear it's not that big. The file size for the pdf is about 166 mb. I'm trying to get more feedback before doing a print, but it's certainly in the works!

Good to hear on both points. The preview alone tells me I want this if nothing else to mine the zillion good ideas you included.

Thank you for writing and publishing this!

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.
