What is Nexus Online

Nexus Online is a Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game using the GMD CORE RPG Rules. It will be using Foundry VTT/Sandbox as its interface. GM Draeus will host the quests and players can drop in and out as they see fit. All Players take on the role of Avatars who are slain Champions by minions of the Horror who are reborn into a shell-less life form both in search of identity and a chance for payback. All heroes are immortal, once they perish in the Nexus they respawn back in the Nexus Lobby Respawn Points. But there is a cost!

Players create an Avatar in accordance with the COR RPG rules. But they only use the following steps:

  • Step 2 – Choose a Role
  • Step 3 – Note NRG
  • Step 4 – Note Health & Delirium
  • Characters then receive a dagger as a weapon.

The character can then upgrade their character by spending Shards. See Shards below

Playing Nexus Online

Once your character has been created you can then start your quests.

You will first appear in the Nexus Lobby at the Respawn Point. From here you will be able to explore the Nexus Lobby which will have shops, hospitals, etc… This will expand over time.

Then you can go on quests by speaking to Non-Plyer Characters (NPC’s) or simply explore the multi-verse by going through active Portals to the CORE Worlds and beyond!

The Nexus is not automated and it is purely run by myself as the Nexus Games Master as a Table-top RPG but using Foundry VTT directly in your browser. You will roll dice from your character sheet as per the Pegasus Engine CORE RPG Rules.

To play Nexus Online, you will need a copy of the CORE RPG rules. No knowledge of the rules will be necessary as GM Draeus will guide you through them. But the books will be needed for Actions etc to perform.

These can be purchased from our Shop or downloaded for FREE from 5 XP as a GMD Online Member.
