Raids is an immersive storytelling role playing game. This is an RPG focused on the role playing elements of the game, set in a dark fantasy world, that will help new players immerse in the game and will challenge veteran rpg-gamers.
The game can be played single player, or multiplayer with or without a games master. Raids base setting is a fantasy world full of living shadow, raw untempered magic and strange new creatures. However, the toolset contained within can translate any world you want into the Raids system and supports cross genre play so that you can tell the stories you want to.
The KS campaign mentions: The rules vary from other RPGs in many ways. There are no character levels, instead as you use skills and abilities to progress the story, you will level up your abilities. There are no classes: you can be whoever you want to be. The game won't punish you if nobody wants to play a healer type character, and you won't feel like you're doing a disservice to your team. The combat system involves actively rolling to block attacks, making you feel more involved even on the enemy turn. In fact with chase sequences and reaction rolls, you'll feel like you're in the driving seat of an action movie. But one of the biggest differences is that you can play this game with one player.
Sometimes you want to dive into a tabletop RPG, but for whatever reason, you can't muster a party. Raids is there for you in that respect. All published adventures will be made available for multiplayer use, and single player use (with or without someone to run the game). There will also be a way to randomly generate dungeons and adventures, so you always have a new story to play.
