From the publisher's website:
Freewill is a coveted possession of the few - the heroes. Create a hero and carve out your own epic. Harness the rich symbolism and story telling power of the Tarot deck.
Swansong focuses heavily on the player characters and their unfolding stories. Each PC will be driven to reach their individual goal, whilst at the same time being influenced by their ego.
Ultimately the characters must face their own personal demons under cosmic judgment. Only if this trial is passed can they go on to confront The Prince of Darkness - whatever form he takes. And if they should falter - It will be their swansong. The game system is flexible and robust, Swansong excels at period drama, high fantasy and super heroic game genres.
The Tarot based resolution system is quick and elegant, sharing narrative input between players and the GM. Featuring a swift and tactical combat system, victory can be won or lost in an instant. Battles are fraught with risk and reversals of fortune, with inter-player psychology as decisive as a meaty stat line. Also, the yielding mechanic means you can fold if the fates fail you! Swansong incorporates a Celtic cross scenario generator, providing you with the means of creating countless role-playing plots.
