The Empire stands triumphant. Be it through military might, market dominance, or control over culture and the Church, it has established itself as the greatest power on the planet. Few countries or organizations oppose The Empire in a meaningful way; none can be said to truly threaten it.

That changes now.

OUR STORMY PRESENT is a pen-and-paper RPG designed to evoke the console RPGs of our youth. Released for a system that never was, by the developers you always wanted.

  • Play as one of eight Archetypes; break heads and show your friends your hidden depths as the Roughneck, make money (and problems) as the Scoundrel, and turn the Empire's weapons against it while trying to keep one step ahead of the shadows of your past as the Turncoat.
  • Comes with three suggested settings and a framework to build your own. Travel through the land of dreams, fighting off the machinations of Fae and Future, in SWIRLING INK IN COUNTLESS COLORS. Liberate a world gripped by the schemes of cold war superpowers in WAR UNDER THREE MOONS. Bring food and fuel to the corners of the world while evading the brutal Fire Brigade in NEON-STAINED SNOW.
  • Take the fight to the Empire from the prow of your Airship, whether it be a cutting-edge prototype, a creaky old corsair, or a flying oarfish.

Book contains descriptions of fantasy violence and brief references to drugs/alcohol.

I've been giving this game a read-through and it seems like the perfect system for a Final Fantasy game I've had brewing in my mind for a while. The only thing I'm curious about is how to handle magic or some such? Like the Red Mage who uses a sword (which I presume would be their weapon), but also wields magic too - would it be a separate weapon profile or?


Reading through it and having a blast so far! I have a question though. What is the difference between Clarity and Composure? I've read the description, but they both seem to be a form of mental health?


Clarity is more higher facilities, "processing what's going on," and Composure is more emotional health, "how you personally react to it." Please feel free to let us know if we can help with anything else!


My fantasies are very finaled 10/10
