While I have yet to play or run Breathless yet, I am very much looking forward to run Renegades. I have been a fan of Star Wars and sci-fi/space opera-themed TTRPGs now for over 25 years, going back to the West End Games D6 Star Wars RPG, and Renegades makes it even quicker and easier to get started rebelling and striking back by leaning on archetypes familiar to the setting/genre. I am especially looking forward to seeing how the reduction in skill rating heightens the tension, backing the player characters into positions where they have to rely on laying low in order to refocus and function at their best, increasing the chances of complications and danger as play progresses.
A downloadable tabletop rpg
The Federation controls the galaxy. They govern with an iron grasp, leveraging the power of tyranny and propaganda to prevent anyone from overthrowing their ruthless empire. There are rumors in the mists about pockets of rebellion. Renegades who haven't lost hope in the face of impossible odds. The Federation is not invincible. They have flaws, and with a bit of luck, we might overthrow their regime.

OTHER REBELS ARE SAYING...
A unique take on the Galaxy Far Far Away, Renegades is a fantastic hack of Breahtless, bringing fun classes from across the galaxy to life. The unique skills each class gets, give players something special to bring to the table while the dice mechanics remind everyone the galaxy, and the Federation, is a dangerous place.

Renegades packs a lot of punch into a small package. Five minutes after downloading the PDF my six year old is already planning her character and I know we’ll be able to pick up the rules quickly and get playing in no time.

Renegades transports the players and their game master from one end of the galaxy to the other, in a world where the Federation rules with tyranny and propaganda to keep anyone from disrupting their rulership. Like many Breathless games, Renegades rules fits under four pages (this is including the character sheet) but offers a world of possibilities. Kits offers the players different occupations and unique skills. Declare A Truth allows the player to add a new truth to the world, thus gaining creative control over how the world evolves. Overall great game with lots of potential! A must-have in your TTRPG collection!

May I ask you - since you already have a Patreon - what are you itchfunding this game for? Will there be a more complete version?… or are there any further plans ahead?
Even though there's a progress bar at the top, Renegades is not currently Itchfunding. I've used this as a way to show how much I'd like to get from releasing the game, but I'm not looking to crowdfund anything right now.
That being said, I'm currently working on adventure modules that I plan on releasing over the next couple of months. I'm thinking about calling the first one "A Way out".
So if you bought Renegades, you will get all the adventure modules for free as I'll release them directly here ^^
Hope that helps!
