The Eburnean Tower has stood for centuries as a symbol of scholarship, arcane power, and ruthless domination. Now this hallowed institution is crumbling from within through backbiting and treachery. The wards have fallen; the Tower's enemies have invaded. Some among the magi's number plot and scheme to leave everything behind them in a smoldering ruin. Now six figures rise to prominence in the history of the Tower. These six stand on the precipice of The Vicious Crucible of the Eburnean Tower. The only way out is through, and the only way through requires a painful transformation into something new.
The Vicious Crucible of the Eburnean Tower is game for up to six players and a GM. It plays in three to five sessions, or a pulse-pouding single session of jump cuts and action sequences. Best of all, it's free.
All Vicious Crucible games are released as a free download. I'm using a "ransom model" for funding the project, with a bit of a twist. The first two games, Verdigris Valley and Eburnean Tower, are already released for free (download below). If the ransom is met, I'll publish the next game for everyone to enjoy. On top of that, when you back the project, you also get the Franchise: you get to vote on where the next Vicious Crucible will be.
So check out Eburnean Tower and decide if you'd like to see more. Then hit up the Kickstarter and pick a reward tier that looks fun.
