Today we are happy to announce the release of the second public beta for our upcoming mythic India-inspired game, Against the Dark Yogi. Anyone can participate in our open beta simply by clicking here to download the game, running it and providing feedback in our occasional feedback surveys.
The focus of this iteration of the beta is to make a first pass at balancing the different traits and various player character options, as well as smoothing over any rough edges left on the game's systems.
Remember, this is still a early version of the game and significant aspects are subject to change before the game's final release. It is recommended that players read the open beta readme for more in-depth information on how to participate. Also remember that this is a playtest version of the game, and as such the full setting material that will be included in the final version of the game isn't yet included here.
- Against the Dark Yogi is a high-action tabletop RPG where the players take on the role of epic heroes, destined to defend the mythological India-inspired world of Bhurloka from the machinations of the Dark Yogi, a sinister figure attacking the dharma, the order of the world, itself. On the subcontinent of Bhurloka are a thousand cities with a myriad customs. Hundreds of city-states and small kingdoms parcel up civilization, with great swaths of untamed forests and mountains wedged between. Wandering ascetics practice austerities on mountaintops, seeking spiritual enlightenment and supernatural powers. Rajas stand before their palaces, speaking to their peoples. Archers, surpassing all others in skill, compete for great prizes and boons. Chariots roll and elephants march with armies to war. And all the while the devas look down upon the world from their celestial home, watching events and warding off attacks from their eternal rivals, the asuras.
