Can You Count to Thirteen ?

There are thirteen worlds. One of them is ours. The other twelve- well, they used to be like our world. They co-exist in the same universe as our own world, but not quite in the same place or time. 'Beside' or 'behind', these are meaningless words. Try 'instead'.

You could try and explain using the arcane language of Quantum, or the science of magic, but you'd be wrong. There's no explanation that you'd be happy with. Nothing you would believe.

The other twelve Earths are called, collectively, The Nearside , and those who hail from the other Earths are called Nearsiders. We are all Nearsiders, from someone's point of view. But everything is relative.

You will play a character who will walk the Broken spaces between worlds.

You will be a Nearsider.

 

This is the current RPG availible from Nearside Games.

It is currently awaiting development into a Second Edition, but there are some copies of the First Edition left.

Second Edition features a new rules system, detailed background for all 13 worlds, and more.
