• Sig: Manual of the Primes

THERE IS ONLY ONE TRUE CITY

Sig is the nexus of the multiverse: a city connected to everywhere, a refuge for the oppressed, and a prize for tyrants. It’s a launching point, allowing fools and heroes to venture into the eternal planes of existence.

Play as one of the Giants of the Plane of Stone or the Wyrms of the Plane of Destruction. Challenge yourself in scorched wastelands of the Crucible in the Plane of Flame. Seek answers to hidden secrets in the Umbral Delta of the Plane of Shadow. Defend yourself in the Final Court, where the Seven Magistrates provide final remedy to any injustice.

WHAT'S INSIDE? 

Chapter 1 presents the rules of play. It offers tools for collaborative scene framing, free-wheeling roleplaying, tense conflicts, and revealing interludes.

Chapter 2 is about creating compelling characters. Build your own freebooter, be they descended from planar heritages or immigrants from the prime worlds. Weave a web of connections and characters who bind the group together.

Chapter 3 describes the Eternal Planes of Existence, their inhabitants, and their supporters. Each plane has their own landmarks, native inhabitants, friendly Factions, and resident divine Powers.

Chapter 4 is the Atlas of Sig, describing the various neighborhoods of the city and the important people who represent them. Discover the Hive, where the destitute and the desperate struggle to survive; or the glory of Highspire, home of the mighty.

Chapter 5 speaks of the infinity of prime worlds, those familiar mortal realms. These include rules for collaborative world-building and a list of exciting worlds to explore, as well as 8 new prime worlds prepared by a roster of professional designers.

Chapter 6 provides other resources to run the game, including detailed examples of character creation and an example of play. This chapter also offers the Night Market adventure, exploring what happens when the Shard Realm of Empire binds to the City Between.


THE MECHANICS

Sig focuses on collaborative narration and difficult decisions. When two participants propose different outcomes to a situation, each participant rolls dice, adding in bonuses if they have applicable Talents. The participant in the conflict with the highest score gets the desired outcome and must pay the Price of Victory.

Players gain Influence by confronting their Beliefs, and they use that Influence to shape the world around them and encourage each other to grow. As the player characters change, so too does Sig; the city’s tethers to different planes of existence shift and reorganize, changing the fundamental nature of the city itself.
