Against the Dark Yogi Beta 4 Released
on July 30, 2013, 8:05 a.m.
A few days ago we released the fourth and final public beta of our mythic India-inspired fantasy 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.
This is the final iteration of the public beta. It is also the release candidate of the game. At this point we don't expect any significant mechanical changes. The purpose of this iteration is to get as any eyes as possible on the rules so that we can correct any remaining issues before the text goes to editing.
Remember, this is still a early version of the game, and as such the rules being presented have not yet been edited. That means there will be occasional typos or "see page XX" placeholders in the text. 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.
