Mythic Dream Studios Series: I like the idea of a godgene. Maybe I have it.
Dark Inheritance (Spycraft) | RPG Item | RPGGeek
This is a modern setting d20 game with a good twist or two. Dark Inheritance announces there are no story arches as if it was a good thing.
Fair call to Dark Inheritance — most games do actually just introduce plot characters spycdaft then never change. Dark Inheritance is all about a setting and an idea and from there. The godgene is the Dark Inheritance idea. Here we have the hero PCs — characters with a gene passed on to them through their ancestors since the mythic ages. These godgene possessed characters are known either as Titans or the Inheritors.
A spycrafft example of what it means to have the godgene can be seen in the Wild Bloods. The Wild Blood lineage are shapeshifting hunters and hark back, evidently, to the shapechangers of yore. Other lineages include the Crimson Lords — the self appointed nobles of the Titans, the Hidden Suns — the scholars and healers, the Storm Crows — warriors and seers and the Void Phoenixes — chaotic creationists. I have to admit I have something of a White Wolf Werewolf flashback from both the names and the stereotypes.
In truth the Dark Inheritance lineages are evocative enough the game has more depth that just exploring their flavoured powers. The world of Dark Inheritance is one where the Titans seem to have failed to fulfil their role is a prophecy.
The Titans have not stopped the Daemonhost. The Cataclysm struck in Jerusalem. In Jerusalem the fabric of reality has been torn. Parts inhsritance the city are merged with the alien landscape of the other world.
There are also monsters, creatures straight from the other dangerous Otherworld and drak abyss. Unicorns and demonic horrors? These things are pretty darn usual inhertiance a Spycraft game! This is great news for those of us with a copy of Spycraft but it means an extra burden for those of us tempted by an action fantasy in a modern setting it means buying a usual core rule set.
Rather than be another fish in the d20 pond, Dark Inheritance is positioned as a more noticeable fish in a smaller sub-pond! Dark Inheritance brings the expected Spycraft extras. We have prestige classes too; the Edgemaster, the Genesoldier and the Witness. There are inherirance options, backgrounds spyceaft departments with the Dark Inheritance twist; tribal, old blood, hedge mage, etc too.
A significant offering the Dark Inheritance makes to Spycraft are the mass of arcane crafts. Arcane crafts are spells and this hardback has plenty of them.
There is more than just the Titan versus daemonhost conflict to act as a battling backdrop to Dark Inheritance. Titan or The Promethean Order acting as heroes, villains or switching between both roles and acting entirely independently of the characters there is scope for plenty spjcraft politics, intrigue and bloody conflict.
It feels cinematic to read and to play. Much like a good action film it seems to work best as a break, as an escape rather than an on-going investment.
That said, the same can easily be said for most cloned fantasy games where this criticism is even stronger. If you have Spycraft then Dark Inheritance is a good investment.
