Lockdown Challenge Day Twelve: Devâstra Réincarnation

Devâstra – Réincarnation is a French role-playing game that allows you to play in a high fantasy version of ancient India called Prithivî.

When I say “high fantasy”, I may be understating the power of the player characters… in Devâstra – Réincarnation, Prithivî is under the threat of the Asuras, and the players are supposed to play the roles of young Avatars wielding magical sentient weapons whose destiny it is to prevent the Asuras from reaching their goal of world domination! Therefore, a player does not have one character sheet, but two: the player character, and their Devâstra – their magical sentient weapon.
Despite being a fully-fledged role-playing game with quality illustrations and professional layout, Devâstra – Réincarnation can be downloaded for free from the publisher’s web-site.
