Welcome to the first part of our Nova/Lumen series, everyone! This series we have Spencer Campbell joining us to showcase his fast-paced, action heavy RPG, Nova, a rules-lite tabletop RPG in a world where the sun exploded, and humanity struggles to hold onto what little light they have left. In this episode, we learn about the setting and dive into the beginning of character creation!
