I want to give you a huge thanks for visiting this website, it means a lot to me and my team. We spend a lot of time putting this game together, and appreciate your time spent here.
Please remember that the game is a work in progress, and the website is even more so, there may be different pages contradicting each other. It would be even great if you would email firstname.lastname@example.org about any inconsistencies you notice, or just to tell me about a very cool idea you had for the game.
Have a good time here on the site, try and find a race you like, and know that if you play the game, we will be very, very happy. Onto the content!
What is Heliabound?
Heliabound is a project I've been working on for around 5 years. I've poured a ton of love into the game and hope others will love it just as much as I do!
Wish me and my characters good luck as they travel the worlds, and their universe is created!
What do I need to play?
In it's current state, you can play Heliabound with at least 8 twelve sided dice (preferably 12), and a few easy to print character sheets!
Most of the combat rules assume you have a battle-mat with 1 inch squares or hexes. If you don't have these available, you can just do combat final fantasy style! Details under combat.
Selling dice and pawns just isn't in our capabilities for now, but they aren't hard to come by, if you have a local comic or gaming shop that's the place to find some.
Why play this instead of [better RPG]?
Our advantage is in a small team. Anything we want to test out can be done and changed within a day. And unlike some of the larger tabletops out there, we are constantly looking for suggestions, I mean, my email is on almost every page! There are downsides to using a work in progress system, but these can be got around with some creative storytelling or even brought to our attention to be changed!
Also you get to roll like 12 dice at a time, so that's always cool.
