Celenia D10 RPG System

Created by

Immerse yourself more in your games! Spend less time doing maths and thinking about complex action economies and more time being your character.

CD10 is 80's action meets Blade Runner. A narratively leaning system where your character's history and personality matters.

With CD10, you can create gripping narratives, use character's personalities, histories and dreams as mechanics. You can allow players the power to shape their own destiny and truly become their characters.

Before the public release, CD10 is only available to current supporters.


CD10 is rapidly approaching 1.0 release! While we're doing the final touchups, things around here are going to be a bit chaotic. So bear with us for a few weeks while we get things in order!


  • Narrative focus
  • No base attributes or levels
  • Skill-based, horizontal progression
  • No hitpoints, but debilitating injuries
  • High lethality
  • Hero point system protects protagonists

Health and life

I don't really have much to complain about, to be honest. I am tired. Exhaustion is a thing and I'm still living through it. Overall, I'm doing way better than a year ago, but it's still much of an uphill battle.


This system has reached "finished" in terms of design. I still need to devote some time to read through the thing and update texts that might be out of date, and I need to write the guides for porting settings as well as the Keeper guides on how to run games.

A fair few of those guides have already been written, but there's still a few to go.

The Foundry module is still being updated for V10, and I'm making decent progress.

For supporters, there is now a progress list with what is left to do before CD10 is considered 1.0 Retail. You can find it here in the Progress Report


This system works really well and in spite of minor changes here and there, based on playtests, we're having a ton of fun, and the system is flexible enough to handle everything the players throw at it.


Haven't had time to work on the CD10 module during November, but several updates have been made to C2D10. The updates are available on my github.


Uh...nothing? Didn't have neither time, nor energy, for worldbuilding this months. Sorry :(

Celenia now has a unified place to access all the things with the url: www.celenia.se. It leads to the primary setting of Cinders of the Cataclysm, but the navbar can take you anywhere within the Celenia universe!
