Hey guys, i’m sure you’ve all played you’re fair share of rpgs where wearing a full set of gear gives you a certain bonus, i’m aiming to make a collection for set items for ICRPG that would be easily incorporated into any fantasy setting. Sci-fi and cyberpunk set items may be something i work on in the future, but for now fantasy is the main genre i play in currently that’s what i’m focusing on for this first batch
Setting a personal goal for myself to make 6 sets of gear(20 items) fully arted and written up into the iconic icrpg fashion by my birthday in april. I’m hoping to get input from this lovely community on effects or abilities they might have, as well as some names and themes for their look and style.
The goal is to release them as INDEX CARD sized items (inspired by the relics of odium) which would be quick references to the bonuses they give, the front side would have a depiction of the item and its name, while the back would have the stats and abilities the item grants you. The hope is for these to be fully printable for your table games onto card stock.
The main premise i am working to achieve is that one item from the set gives you a unique ability, and wearing all of the set improves that ability. However there’s also some abilities i feel are more a set piece then a single items, so its really kind of a mixed bag with what i have for brainstormed ideas so far, which are listed below! I like the idea of some sets having more / less items then others depending on their type / rarity / story / etc so let your creative juices flow! Stories regarding each set to be added as well.
