It's sort of like D&D meets Civilization: Each session advances the timeline of the world hundreds or thousands of years into the future. Red Aegis is an intriguing RPG about dynasties that span centuries and heroic adventures that can carry you from the stone age to the stars. We talked to the creators.
This is not your typical RPG in which your character crawls dungeons and gains experience solely for personal advancement. Instead, you'll take part in an epic story of your character and all that character's descendants. Taking place in a world called Namarune, Red Aegis is a standalone system, although there are plans for supplements that will allow it to "plug in" to other RPGs — Pathfinder is first on the list.
