Create a Character in Saviors of Crius

In this text-based adventure game, you will be able to create your own character and take them into battle against your foes, complete quests given to you while you adventure around the realm going on solo missions and group expeditions. Catchy Cantrips will also be hosting monthly community events for everyone to participate in even more gripping adventures.

The character creation options include choosing a species and a class initially and you’ll be able to gain more items and gear as you go along to upgrade your characters. While race provides no mechanical advantage for your character, this means that you also don’t have to worry about the impact that your choice of race has on the type of character that you want to build.

The Basics of Game

The Saviors of Crius RPG bot uses is a simplified version of Dungeons & Dragons so you’ll still be able to get that classic D&D feel without it being cumbersome to play through text. You’ll be able to roll for initiative, which, I mean, who doesn’t love to do that? In battle, you can decide what spell, weapon or item you want to use and will have action options like dealing damage, healing, altering stats or fleeing during your turn.

You won’t have to worry about the game feeling too repetitive as Catchy Cantrips has implemented the use of AI in their combat encounters for Saviors of Crius so that you have unique encounters for varying gameplay. The AI implemented in the game will help each enemy you face to vary in some way with some enemies being more intelligent and tactical while others may be cowardly and flee.

Back the Kickstarter and get cute stuff

We love having familiars and party pets in our games, don’t we? Well the good news is that backers for the SOCRPG will deliver on that desire as anyone who backs the Kickstarter will get a Tatoe Tot familiar in the game. What’s a Tatoe Tot? Tatoe Tots are just cute little guys. In some live streams on Twitch, there are little avatars at the bottom of the stream that you can customize and use to battle other viewers while you watch the stream as an additional form of entertainment. Over on Catchy Cantrip’s channel, Ash has made all their avatars which are round little fey creatures called Tatoes and they’re heckin’ adorable.
