Polaris/Nemesis ORE

After reading the book for the Polaris RPG its awesome poetic writing and neat setting really made me want to play.
Unfortunately, the rules aren't really my cup of tea.


I enjoy the Nemesis ORE variant quite a bit, and the following posts in this blog will catalog my efforts to modify its system to suit a more medieval setting, specifically the world of Polaris.


A further expansion will be posted that involves crazy demon powers that come with a price, drawing heavy inspiration from the amazing game Don't Rest Your Head (which I seriously recommend as a rules-light RPG, by the way).
