Untold is a revolutionary new role-playing game (RPG) from Ignitus Innovation designed to combine all the best elements of Role Playing Games (RPG's) and Collectible Card Games (CCG's) and toss the rest. Untold is a CBRPG (TM): Card-Based Role Playing Game. It is exactly the same as any other RPG, but the primary physical "tools" of the game are different. Instead of rulebooks and character sheets, the only "tools" you need in Untold are cards!
That's right - only cards - cards which are used to construct characters, represent their skills, abilities, items, powers and moves, as well as contain all of the rule/mechanics references necessary to play the game! In Untold, there are no rulebooks, gazetteers, or guides to purchase, read and try to remember. Your character is a deck of cards - and all the rules that filled a library full of books before is now on a set of beautifully illustrated cards! All you need to play Untold is a deck and a die!
Untold was created to be fast, flexible, furious, and fun. The game is amazingly fast when you want to build and change characters - a task that can now be done in seconds thanks to the modular card-based system as well as the unique card swapping mechanics. Combat in Untold is especially furious and visceral thanks to the unique way damage is accounted for - something called "Downgrading". The underlying task of Untold's designers has been to take the toil out of playing RPGs and put the fun back in. As such, every single thing the guys over at Ignitus have done during the development of Untold has been driven by this maxim.
