Starting A New Everway Campaign!

After I bought the first edition of Everway, I dropped it off at my friend Amon's house.
I came back later, after I had purchased some dinner, and saw that he had filled a dining room table with Vision Cards from the box set. It was such a splendid array, and he was quite impressed to see Ogun on one of the Fortune Deck cards, as back in the early 1990s, there were still relatively few depictions of characters or beings of African descent in RPGs! Everway was probably the first truly multicultural and inclusive RPG in that respect!

Twenty five or so years later, I am so thrilled to be beginning a new campaign for Everway with the new Everway Silver Anniversary Edition which is about to go on Kickstarter. Tonight we will step into character generation, which feels like returning to the source!

To learn more about what's going on with the Silver Anniversary Edition, you can join the Everway Facebook group here. To get notified about the launch of the Kickstarter, you can sign-up here.

The Everwayan blog was created to celebrate everything Everway, so expect updates about how character generation and the campaign are going!

  1. I have to say, years later... Everway is kind of a mess.

    Don't get me wrong. I love Everway. I love the mythic feel, the way it encourages GM and players to think in epic ways, as if we're all playing one of the great tales from myth and legend.

    But the mechanics... cutting edge in 1995... need some work today.

    I've backed the new effort, and will back their future work... but the last time I ran Everway, I ported it to a more modern narrative system. I'm crossing fingers the new work will update these rules a bit.
