Entry: 00-001: An introduction to the spine.

An Introduction to the Spine

by Doug, Co-Creator

Welcome to the first ever Chronicles of the Void (CotV) blog post! We will be using this space to keep you up dated with all things CotV. For starters let’s talk about the back bone of the game, the crunch, the rules or as we like to call it, the spine.

The spine of CotV consist of 3 major parts -
  • VAP (Vehicle Assault and Pursuit)
  • OBC (One Breath Combat)
  • Everything else.
The VAP is used for epic space battles where each player will have the ability to purchase and upgrade their own star fighters. The OBC is for more traditional ground combat and involves many innovations on the traditional RPG approach to help keep things quick and dynamic. Everything else is…everything else! Like any good RPG you’ll have the freedom to completely control your character and how they interact with their environment and to do this we offer simple solutions focused less on rules knowledge and more on role playing.

That’s all for now, tune in next week for a look at the principle ideas and goals behind the spine!
