Oneshi Press proudly announces the planned launch of its first-ever fantasy tabletop role-playing game. The Mag Tower TTRPG Zine will launch on February 16, 2023, along with a coloring book and short comic, all set in the immersive sci-fi/fantasy universe of Children of Gaia.
The Mag Tower game will be launched on February 16 as part of Kickstarter's "Zine Quest" open call, which invites creators to launch zines for new RPGs or to elevate existing ones.
About the Mag Tower TTRPG Zine
A foreign power has invaded Rendaraia, laying waste to its most ancient civilizations. Now, soldiers descend upon the realm's last stronghold of magical power: the Mag Tower, hidden for years in the deepest forests of Mitheraia.
The Mag are reclusive elven sorcerers, guardians of the fabled Mage Stones—powerful relics that they've sworn to protect with their very lives. House Vargas is the military leader of the Terran Empire, and it will stop at nothing to gain total control of Rendaraia's greatest treasures. T
In the Mag Tower TTRPG, players can be on either side in the epic battle to protect—or to steal—the Mage Stones! Set in the vast, immersive sci-fi/fantasy universe of Children of Gaia, the Mag Tower role-playing game is a simple one-off game that can be completed in 30 to 45 minutes, and enjoyed by 1 to 10 players. The Kickstarter campaign will include:
digital and print versions of the Mag Tower zine, including stunning art by Jayel Draco;
a digital tabletop simulator for groups playing virtually;
a Mag Tower theme song by David Gueringer;
art prints by Jayel Draco and Chris Covelli, co-creators of Children of Gaia;
custom-made gaming dice from Flutes' Creations.
"We've been looking forward to Zine Quest for months," says Jayel Draco, co-founder of Oneshi Press and co-creator of Children of Gaia. "I've been co-creating Children of Gaia for decades, and the goal has always been for it to be immersive. A role-playing game will allow players to deeply experience the epic story for themselves!"
But the TTRPG zine is only part of the excitement! The campaign will also present…
Mitheran Fauna: A Coloring Book by Shadowind
In the deeply magical Great Nation of Mithera, the creatures and plants, insects and fungus, are just as fantastical as the elven mages who devote their lives to the mystical arts. Now, in stunning line drawings, Shadowind presents an ecosystem that will dazzle your eyes and invite you in to color it however you like!
"Children of Gaia: Diplomacy," a Short Comic
In this short comic by Children of Gaia co-creator Chris Covelli, Lacerta, and Cardinal Rae, tensions are rising between the Empire of Celes and the Great Nations of Rendaraia. As the son of the empire’s highest general, Siegfried Vargas attempts to resolve the conflict peacefully. But navigating strange customs and opposing ideals in the foreign capital of Mithera, Siegfried wonders if war may be inevitable."We're thrilled to bring our first-ever coloring book into the world alongside this zine. Shadowind really brings the magical world to life on the page with stunning art," says Lynsey G, co-founder of Oneshi Press and editor of the game. "And we promise that the short comic 'Diplomacy' by Chris Covelli is truly going to be one of the most beautiful things you've ever seen."
Oneshi Press will also plant a tree for every campaign backer as part of an ongoing partnership with OneTreePlanted.org that aims to reforest areas that need it most around the world.
Oneshi Press will launch the Kickstarter campaign for The Mag Tower on February 16, seeking to raise $1.200 to fund printing and distribution of the TTRPG zine, the coloring book, and the short comic in 28 days, concluding on March 16.
The Mag Tower campaign is currently in pre-launch on Kickstarter. Follow the project and be notified when it launches!
ABOUT CHILDREN OF GAIA
In Rendaraia, where nature, magic, and civilization have long coexisted, strangers of unknown origin are invading. As war rages between the Terran interlopers and Rendaraian natives, hundreds of unique cultures of wildly varying technologies, traditions, and species are ravaged by an imperial society driven by the rapacious demands of its own politically divided home. But there is more at stake than land or culture: Rendaraia and its invaders are linked far more deeply than anyone realizes. In a lavish fantasy setting, battles are waged through soldiers and lovers; magic and steel; diplomacy and gunpowder. Children of Gaia (COG) is a complex story told through the eyes of those living through a collision of worlds. Some fight for power, others struggle to preserve a way of life, and many battle just to stay alive.
