LUMEN RPG about immortal guardians

Shine bright

You are a Beacon, an immortal guardian of the last city on Earth. Human civilization crumbles across the system, but you and your kind are a ray of hope in a dark time.Shine bright, Beacon.

What is LIGHT?

LIGHT is an action packed, rule-lite tabletop RPG. Using the LUMEN system, LIGHT captures the excitement and power fantasy of sci-fi looter shooter video games like Destiny, and brings them to the table.

In LIGHT, you are Beacons, immortal guardians infused with nearly limitless power. Wielders of weapons and the Light, Beacons are unstoppable protectors of humanity across the Sol system.Beacons harness the Light that has ignited them, summoning devastating powers as they smash down any that stand in their path. Pillars of flame, fractal shards, and the relentless void are just a fraction of the power Beacons hold.

Humanity has reached a Golden Age, and has established footholds on many neighboring planets. Beacons convene at the Lighthouse on Earth, and from there, travel to wherever they are needed most.And they are needed. Forces from beyond our system have invaded, and assault humanity from every side. The bird-like alien Corvus smash down with military might, with the Dread Fleet in their wake. A cult of death magic worshippers rises in the Belt, and rumors of a species that drinks the stars themselves are spreading quickly.Humanity stands at the brink. You are all we have left.Shine bright, Beacon.
