What is Opus Interactive?
Opus (Interactive) is a system for resolving conflicts, resistance, obstacles, and similar situations in interactive fiction and roleplaying games. It’s a set of rules to help things move along in a fair, consistent way so the focus can stay on the story and action therein. It provides different options for sorting things out to help accommodate different storytelling styles.
Why do you use it for Arthur’s Legacy?
It was developed alongside of it. The bid system from Arthur’s Legacy (Alpha) and unreleased/private release Legends Interactive modules were the draft material and inspiration for the current beta incarnation of Opus Interactive.
Is Opus only for Arthur’s Legacy?
Not at all. While it is well-suited for the adventures and quests of knights of Legends Reborn, it can also be easily adapted for a variety of settings and play styles. Everything from high fantasy to space opera can be run using the system. Also it is worth nothing that Opus (Interactive) is released under an open license, while Arthur’s Legacy and other setting content is released under a non-commercial use license.
What does an open license mean?
In this case it means free like speech and free like beer. You are free to spread it and adapt it. You also do not have to pay anything for it or to use it. You can even use it in commercial projects. The catch is that any versions or adaptations you share must be shared under the same conditions. This is accomplished with the Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial Share-Alike license. If you want to release derivative material under another license or commercially license our setting properties, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
How does it work?
Well, how it works is its own release! However, an upcoming preview will provide a quick overview of the system and its bits. Another preview will cover some of the flexible options available for conflict resolution and character advancement.
