Between humans and gods, reality and myth, perfection and the end of everything: there stand the Nobilis.
Nobilis is a diceless RPG that gives each character control over an elemental aspect of reality and embroils them in a war between Creation and the Not.
It’s not currently in print, for which I apologize:
- thanks to the generous assistance of Kari Tuurihalme, Rand Brittain, James Wallis, and Daniel Solis, the second edition is available in PDF form; note, however, that the second edition was laid out as an 11″x11″ book, which has prevented print-on-demand and makes it a somewhat awkward PDF.
- the third edition is nearing the end of its distribution period at the time of this writing, and I can’t sell it myself because I don’t have rights to much of the art.
- the fourth edition is pending; I want to field test some mechanical ideas first in Glitch before diving seriously into development.
