City of Sig Kickstarter

Sig: The Manual of the Primes
Really don't know what to think of this - sounds like they try to copy Sigil/Planescape/The Manual of the Planes.

Quote:
There is only one true city; a place of multiversal trade, cultural exchange, and mixed blood. A place where monsters come to scheme and gods come to die.

Sig is the nexus of the multiverse. It's a city connected to everywhere, a refuge for the oppressed and a prize for tyrants. It's a place where culture is at the forefront, with diverse faiths and tongues struggling for space in the crowded metropolis. It's a city of families, both whole and broken.

Sig is also a launching point, allowing fools and heroes to venture into the eternal planes of existence. Each plane is made of concepts, of elements, of ideals that resonate through the entire 'verse. The planes impose their own Beliefs on Sig and on the infinite primal worlds beyond.

Each of the planes is also home to unique peoples, from the Giants of the Elemental Plane of Stone to the Wyrms of the Ideological Plane of Destruction. The planes are home to mighty Powers: gods, demons, and stranger things which send their servitors to spread their faith into the City Between. The planes even offer resources to the bickering political Factions and warring guilds that control Sig's hungry streets.

Visit the Elemental Plane of Flame to test yourself in scorched wastelands of the Crucible. Seek answers to hidden secrets in the Umbral Delta of the Conceptual Plane of Shadow. Defend yourself in The Final Court, where the Seven Magistrates provide final remedy to any injustice.

...heh. Yeah, the "borrowing

...heh. Yeah, the "borrowing" is pretty blatant. Maybe someone should poke the company?

I think it's close as an idea

I think it's close as an idea but outside of "Sig" being so close to "Sigil" I think it's only as close as Pathfinder or Dark Roads & Golden Hells cosmologies? Even the idea of elemental and conceptual planes is more from estoeric/occult ideas I believe as the same kind of cosmology, IIRC, is in White Wolf?

Heh, honestly I'm thinking of backing so maybe he's on to something with the close name...

It looks like he wanted to

It looks like he wanted to make a Planescape game, but changed the setting just enough to avoid any copyright issues while keeping it recognizable. And that's totally fine for me - I'll get a good adaptation for another system even it doesn't include the established lore. It's probably actually easier play actual Planescape on this than on a new edition of D&D.

I still have to read most of the book, but so far it looks good.

"There’s a dark mirror to the universe of flickering streetlights and broken sidewalks you think you know; an infinity of time and space alike hanging behind the paranormal apex, just after midnight, where the rules of reality that sane folks are accustomed to don’t necessarily apply. Most people know nothing about this illogical backstage of the cosmos, the Nether Time … and of those who do, most want nothing to do with it.

But a heart’s desire is there for the finding for those brave enough—or stupid enough—to look.

Between 11:59 and the moment after, within the Other Interval, there stretches an infinite ocean of potential time across a broken reflection of forgotten ages. Behind the Curtain, there’s time enough to fall in love, to get married on a white beach under purple stars, to get divorced in a court of autumn-elves and gypsy-moths then dance around the bonfire naked and cry with a group of friends and finally fall asleep drunk with all of your teeth punched out.

Time enough to go insane, just waiting for the thinnest hand of the clock to go ‘click’ one more time.

Time enough to get killed in any number of horrible ways.

And once it all sorts itself out, you’re back home in the Waking World not a moment later. Probably not in the same shape, though – nothing will ever be the same.

Some mad souls explore far into the Deep Sideways, behind the scenes of comfortable reality – into the 25th Hour, that strange world of gods, wizardry and monsters. Some become self-proclaimed masters over this place of wonder and horror, commanding a realm of magic where other secret kings, queens and their mystical courts war for control. As the scion of an Emptied Empire, you wield the powers of channeled peoples, places, and ideas—whether historical, literary, mythological, or imaginary."
