It's that nagging irritation you've had with every other Pen and Paper RPG you've ever played. It's the answer to 20 years of playing games but being frustrated with all of their unspoken limitations. An answer which has taken the last eight years to come to fruition. Why can't your character become totally epic, yet still maintain a level of interesting play? Why can't all of the classes in these games all scale in an interesting and meaningful way? Why does a warrior have to be such a bland and boring character to play? Why can't we have more interesting character classes? Well, Ascendant answers all these questions with a resounding, why the hell not? Inside the world of Ascendant you will find an engaging post fantasy-apocalypse world that was rescued from the very brink of destruction by the God of Death. All of the other gods were destroyed in this incredible cataclysm. The world left over is a desolate, chaotic, challenging place. Only small pockets of humanity survive perpetually encroached upon by all manner of undead or daemonic beings. The reverberations of the magical apocalypse have created a wide spread imbalance of magical energy. While dealing with her massive backlog of souls in purgatory Death has noticed the magical energy starting to collect itself in different vessels, some terrible and some incredible. Some of the first generation of humans after the cataclysm have also become these vessels. Since Death cannot rebuild this world entirely by herself she has recruited these human vessels to become "Reapers." You take the role of one of these Reapers, permanently marked by death with a massive black scythe on your back. Will you use your incredible power to corrupt and conquer, or to nurture and build?
