IMB008 – ‘SAGA SVELATA’

In questo volume di espansione per SAGA (Gioco di Ruolo Narrativo) andremo oltre i confini del velo del reale, occupandoci di ciò che trascende la semplice materialità, approfondendo i dettagli sull’utilizzo del Mana, descrivendo le opere che garantiscono stabilità ai Poteri soprannaturali, scoprendo quei Pregi che trasformeranno i Personaggi Giocanti in entità sovrumane, dissertando su come poter raggiungere il rango di divinità e su come confrontarsi con esse, proponendo infine un elenco di PNG pronti all’uso per le storie del Narratore. In SAGA Svelata il Gioco di Ruolo Narrativo porta il Narratore e i Giocatori a toccare i segreti ultimi dell’universo, con tutte le conseguenze che questo comporta. Perché nei mondi di SAGA nulla è per nulla! E’ necessario disporre del volume di SAGA GDRN per poter applicare al meglio le opzioni proposte in SAGA Svelata.

E se gli antichi astronauti ci avessero davvero visitato?

La giovane Neter, nata sulla Terra e divisa fra le due culture, dovrà lottare per trovare la sua strada, far valere le sue convinzioni e affrontarne le conseguenze. Le Cronache raccontano della sua parabola nelle aule del potere dei Neter, dei suoi amori, di alleanze, inganni e oscuri segreti, mentre sullo sfondo si muove un’altra versione della storia dell’umanità.

SAGA è un sistema di gioco di ruolo universale, focalizzato sul racconto e l’interpretazione, dove la casualità interviene solo quando non ci siano alternative o le avversità risultino predominanti. Le scelte dei Personaggi in SAGA avranno un valore cruciale, molto più della sola fortuna, nelle vicende che si troveranno ad affrontare negli universi creati dal Narratore, portando le loro storie alle soglie dell’eternità. Ai Giocatori di SAGA viene dato modo di generare rapidamente dei Personaggi perfettamente tagliati sulla loro ispirazione ed in grado di calarsi in qualsiasi ambientazione nella quale si trovino ad agire. Al Narratore di SAGA vengono forniti strumenti esaustivi per valutare i racconti e le interpretazioni dei Giocatori, piuttosto che per gestire le interazioni dei Personaggi con il mondo nato dalla sua fantasia, avendo come primo obiettivo il divertimento di tutti quanti.

YES!JUMP!YOU!JUMP! (AKA YJYJ)

Dave Timson

 is frontman and bassist for established band The Afterglow (with support at BBC6Music). Following many years and many releases with them, he felt the need however, to work on quite a different musical project. A project in which he could express through his own very personal and troubled formative experiences. Experiences that he believes should be shared publicly.

The name YJYJ (Yes!Jump!You!Jump!) is conjured by the words of an adult’s scream, addressed to Dave when labelled ‘a problem child’ at primary school. A scream still resounding in his ears today. ‘Hero In’, YJYJ’s debut album, tells of the strength that child showed, about the allegorical superhero he felt inside and of the day he decided to take the challenge and jump forward, beyond his troubles. His deepest memories, his toughest experiences and feelings, the loneliness, the brutality and the bullying he went through. The words and the melodies reflect a truly torrid time.

Andre Deka, young and talented producer and musician from Turin (Italy), has already worked with many prestigious recording studios worldwide. Punto Rec Studios in Turin (Lana Del Rey, PFM) and 123Production Studios in London (Florence and the Machine, Clean Bandit) among others. In 2016 he worked for six months as studio assistant at London Bridge Studios in Seattle, United States (Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Maklemore, Fleet Foxes, Death Cab For Cutie, OneRepublic) and despite now being back in Italy, he continues to collaborate with them on several international projects. As a musician, Andre has featured within a number of notable projects in the Italian independent music scene. He is a founder member of the band Italian Breakfast and has widely toured throughout Italy, Germany and other European countries.

Dave met Andre during a gig that The Afterglow were playing in Italy last year, Andre performing with another band there at the time. Deeply impressed by his sounds and skills, Dave asked Andre to join YJYJ and he agreed. The future of YJYJ therefore begins here, as painful ghosts from the past are potentially put to rest in a truly insightful, revealing and extremely (rare and) honest musical way.

PICCOLA ORCHESTRA OCHTOPUS 

‘While travelling, we met Birikuz’
  

Piccola Orchestra Ochtopus was born in 1996 and originally simply called ‘Ochtopus’, buskers keen on mixing instruments in an unconventional way. Originally from Ravenna in Italy, a city full of history, arts and culture, known worldwide for its architecture and mosaics – an environment rich of stimuli for a posse of like-minded musicians.

For their origins, the band played at the On The Road Festival in Pelago in 1997 and again in 1999. and soon started describing their music as ‘tentacular’, a pun related to the Ochtopus name, but also analogous to their need to tell the world: we do music our own multi-tastic way! Members have changed often over the twenty years since the Ochtopus inception, many musicians and friends stayed for quite a while, sharing artistic views: music is sharing, acceptance, emotions, from the Balkans, from Romagna (the band’s region), from dear old Europe…

The debut album ‘E’ LA QUINTINA CHE M’INCASINA’ (1998) has echoes of cinematic music intertwined with different musical ideas further developed in later works. During its merry-go-round of musician membership, the band experimented with percussion and other instruments creating a sort of small musician/musical circus (the bitter happiness of clowns, the cockiness of tamers, the elegance of tightrope walkers, the bravery of trapeze artists…) leading to their second full length release ‘PARAPONZIPO’ (2001).

Ochtopus continued to walk their musical path by playing live in square after square, city after city releasing two more acclaimed albums ‘CALAMARES PRA PASSEJO’ (2004) and ‘NIENTE APPARENTE’ (2010). In 2014 they were reborn when Ochtopus finally became Piccola Orchestra Ochtopus, with more new friends and band members. They are now ready to release their fifth album entitled ‘BIRIKUZ’ aimed at exploring the rich and fascinating world of Klezmer. Ignorelands Record Label will release this and all previous Piccola Orchestra Ochtopus works before Summer 2017.

PATEO 

Flight attendant on long haul routes, Pateo is a polyglot globetrotter with a strong sense for languages and places musicality who enjoys hunting around for sounds by means of a portable field recorder. Intrigued by the potentials of technology in contemporary music, Pateo attended Ableton Live and virtual synth classes and likes Berlin’s “Loop”, a yearly summit for music makers, artists, technologists and creative thinkers.

“Homeworks” is the outcome of Pateo’s Ableton and synth classes, a little collection of actual course exercises where playful experimentation with the newly acquired music tools and freedom from pre-determined genres result in simple, yet fresh and original tracks. Some of “Homeworks” compositions are descriptive (a thunderstorm approaching over a pond and its agitated toads on a hot summer day, the blurry sounds of the underwater world and of submarine creatures passing by…), some others are atmospherical, like the joyful-funkyish “Galangal” or the bright, wide “Air”.

FABIUS CONSTABLE 

Fabius Constable is one of the most appreciated modern harpists worldwide. Founder and director of the famous Celtic Harp Orchestra, his peculiar harp technique – a mix of Celtic, Classical and South American genres – gives a broad range of new colours to his music. Original compositions, Ancient Music, Flamenco and Celtic, Contemporary Music, Ethnic tunes are all arranged to meet the ears of the modern audience in an amusing and contagious way.
