Before we start…

JAN 01

Hello, there!

I’m a bit behind but I’ll try to catch up with the rest of the Lore24 crowd.

My choice is to use this collective effort to develop an idea that was slowly burning in the back of my brain and write a brand new ttrpg setting.

The game is called Akoni: Blood of the Orishas. It is an Afro Fantasy Roleplaying Game of mythic heroes inspired by Yoruba traditions.

A brief disclaimer: although I am not a person of color (per se), I live in a country where the African influence extends far beyond the realms of music and food, but are deeply rooted in our language, religion, festivities, and folklore.

So, I consider myself fortunate to have been borne into such a rich and complex culture, and this game is my way of expressing my love and gratitude to the African ancestry we all carry in our minds and in our blood.

With that out of the way, I will start by describing in broad strokes what I envision this game will be.

Since it’s a work in progress, it will be interesting to see how much of my initial intents will make it to the final version. So, let’s begin.
