Sine Nomine FRPG, designed by Kevin Crawford (Stars Without Number), of divine heroes forging a new world from the ruins of the old. In Godbound you play demigods in a dying world. In ancient times the kingdoms of humanity stormed Heaven and fought through angelic armies to the Throne of God Himself -- only to find the Throne empty. The mortal kingdoms decided to make gods of their own. Each Made God that attempted to sit on the Throne was reduced to ash. As abominable titans waged the Last War, reality crumbled in a universal Shattering. Now, in the Uncreated Night, new divinities have arisen. Some mortals, seemingly at random, have become bound to the Words of Creation that give control of the fabric of reality. Will the Godbound save the world from destruction, or hasten its demise?
Funded in a March 2016 Kickstarter campaign, Godbound is an Old School take on the themes of White Wolf's Exalted. The game uses straightforward B/X retroclone rules with the power settings turned waaay up. One of Godbound's prime selling points is its system-neutral gamemastering tools, a la Stars Without Number and Kevin Crawford's other games, that help you create high-impact adversaries and challenges for any kind of game.
We provide each ebook complete in .PDF (Portable Document Format). All the books in this offer are also provided in ePub format (for the Nook, Kobo Reader, and most other ereaders), and all the books except Lexicon of the Throne are provided in Kindle (.mobi) format. Like all Bundle of Holding titles, these books have NO DRM (Digital Restrictions Management), and our customers are entitled to move them freely among all their devices.
Ten percent of each payment (after gateway fees) for this offer will be donated to the charity designated by Godbound designer Kevin Crawford, Benzie Food Partners, a nonprofit Feeding America food bank serving Kevin's home county in Honor, Michigan. "Benzie County is reliant on tourism and hospitality, and we've been hit hard by the lockdowns," says Kevin. "The place only has 240 year-round residents, and just about everybody here is affected by the closings. My neighbors need whatever help they can get."

This one probably isn't for me, I'm more a fan of games where the characters are more or less human, but it might be fun if you like the idea of getting ridiculously powerful and smiting your enemies, and as usual you're getting a lot for your money and supporting a worthwhile cause.
