Ruma Dawn of Empire

Ruma Dawn of Empire

  • Description

    Citizen! The burgeoning Ruman Empire needs your help bringing civilization to the savages.

    Ruma: Dawn of Empire  is a roleplaying game set in an alternate Roman Empire where myth and magic are real. The Empire has just begun to push its borders into neighboring lands, only to be met by savage barbarians, murderous beasts, magical forests, and strange horrors. Ruman generals and senators have formed small cohorts of specialized troops to discover and counter these threats. You and your friends are members of such a cohort.

    Powered by the Apocalypse Engine, created by D. Vincent Baker & Meguey Baker for their game  Apocalypse World.

    Inspiration for Ruma can be found in movies such as  300,  Ben Hur,  Centurion,  Clash of the Titans,  The Eagle,  Gladiator, and  Immortals; TV shows like  Rome  and  Spartacus; and novel series like  The Oath of Empire  by Thomas Harlan and  The Videssos Cycle  by Harry Turtledove.

    Players choose from one of the 12 playbooks to create their characters. Each playbook provides several unique abilities. Players also choose one of the Ruman gods in whose cult their character has been initiated. Following their cult's teachings can grant blessings from their god.
