Nefertiti Overdrive: the Princess

An important part of Nefertiti Overdrive is the introductory adventure and pre-generated characters. It was the characters and their initial adventure, more than anything else, that inspired the creation of the system. Here, then, is the primary motivator of the story, both in her original format and her alternate character format.

You can expect the Nefertiti Overdrive Kickstarter to begin on Monday, 17 March 2014. Mark your calendars and start saving your pennies.
