Shadows Rising is a Web-based Role Playing Game open to customisation.
Version: 0.0.5b pre-alphaShadows Rising project is a Web-based Role Playing Game open to customisation.
Operating System: Linux
Shadows Rising is an RPG game engine. The engine is aimed at enabling users to install a number of game modules which will use the engine to present an RP game to players on the user's site.
The basic concept of the game engine is to create a highly configurable and extendable engine to support Role Playing games under a variety of ruleset regimes. The game engine therefore keeps all game content and data stored externally to the engine in what are known as "Game Modules". These Game Modules are basically XHTML and CSS template files, database stored data, content and game items. As a result individual users may create custom Game Modules tailored for specific game types, locations, plots, NPCs and timelines.
This immense ability makes possible a large variety of RPG games, something deeply supported by the ability to configure almost any game engine settings, and add game engine "Plug-Ins" which extend both functionality and support for more complex Game Modules. The game engine is pre-packaged with the "Shadows Rising RPG Game" created by the game engine developers. A primary development objective is making both game engine configuration and Game Module creation as easy a process as possible - including the ability to use alternative RPG rulesets that users may be more comfortable and familiar with.
