An(Other) Unofficial RWBY TTRPG: The Momentum System [Free]

An(Other) Unofficial RWBY TTRPG: The Momentum System [Free]:


Remnant is a world of monsters and fairy tales, of noble heroes and great deeds, built upon the backs of love and sacrifice in equal measure.

The four kingdoms of Remnant exist in a constant struggle against the forces of Grimm, dark entities which seek only destruction and chaos. The Grimm take on many bizarre and dangerous forms, from creeping Deathstalkers to beastly Beowolves to powerful Ursa, and only become more dangerous as they survive longer. Drawn to human suffering and negative emotions, the Grimm are constantly nipping at humanity’s heels, threatening their borders and making expansion difficult.

There are those who understand that Remnant sits precariously on the head of a pin, but most of its citizens are simply trying to make it from one day to the next. For those huntsmen and huntresses tasked with protecting the common people, life can be a constant struggle. But that is the life they choose. Take up your weapons, protect the kingdoms, slay the forces of Grimm, and become the hero of your story. 


An(other) Unofficial RWBY TTRPG is a custom system best played with 3-5 players and facilitated by a Game Master. Players take on the role of huntsmen and huntresses, armed with their custom weapons, an arsenal of Dust and their unique semblances to take on the horrors of the Grimm, the seedy gangsters and criminals who seek to upheave the status quo, and the dark forces that sow chaos across the kingdoms. 

Featuring the Momentum system, which allows full player creativity to solve problems and deal with obstacles through a push and pull of building up momentum and then expending it in large bursts, with enemy-specific moves to stall the player's progress and stop them in their tracks.

AURWBYTTRPG is in open beta! The first 50 pages of rules are available here for free, which allows players to build their own custom characters and begin their adventures in the world of Remnant as a team of huntsmen and huntresses. Future updates will bring the world to life with a history of Remnant and details of the four kingdoms, as well as enemy profiles and stat blocks for common opponents and ways to customize more advanced versions of each enemy. Also coming soon: Character sheets! Follow this project to catch it right as updates are released!

All comments, questions, reviews and tips are greatly appreciated! As the game is still in open beta, some numbers may be tweaked or adjusted with future updates.
