Chaosium is distributing Upwind, the RPG fable of lost science, elemental magic, and unchartered skies. Originally produced by Stewart Wieck's Nocturnal Media and Biohazard Games following a successful Kickstarter, Upwind is now available from Chaosium in full color hardcover and PDF, along with the Prophecy of the Grand Amplifier sourcebook.
"Imagine Bakshi’s classic animated film Wizards has a head-on collision with Disney’s Treasure Planet
and the resulting fire is put out with a whole lot of Studio Ghibli’s Castle in the Sky.
That, in an unexpected, animated mash-up, is Upwind."
Upwind is a narrative style RPG set in a strange alternate world of floating island nations, flying sailing ships, long-lost technology, wild elemental powers, looming war and forgotten legacies.
Upwind is powered by the Q system, an original stakes-based, playing card-driven mechanic that gives every encounter consequences with meaningful, narrative-building outcomes. With its unique bidding rules, Upwind plays as fast as you can tell your story.
