Against the Darkmaster is a traditional tabletop Epic Fantasy roleplaying game, inspired by great classic fantasy sagas and designed to bring heroic action and heavy metal combat to your table.
If you put together works like The Lord of the Rings and The Wheel of Time, sprinkled them with a bit of Labyrinth and Dragonslayer, and put everything in a blender together with a healthy dose of classic Heavy Metal, you’ll get a typical Against the Darkmaster game session.
In Against the Darkmaster, you and your friends will take the role of a fellowship of valiant heroes, standing together against the seemingly overwhelming power of Darkness.
You will travel to distant lands, face terrible dangers, uncover ancient items of power, and gather the armies of the world under your banner to defeat the great Evil that threatens your world: the Darkmaster.
Against the Darkmaster isn’t tied to a single fantasy setting, but it’s written with a specific sub-genre of fantasy fiction in mind. It draws inspiration from the classic Epic Fantasy Sagas, and we’ve tried to capture the feeling of those stories, embedding some of their core thematic elements into the game system.
This makes Against the Darkmaster the perfect game for setting your adventures in the world described by your favorite fantasy author, or in your very own quasi-medieval world.
But above all, Against the Darkmaster focuses on the characters you create, the Passions driving them, and their choices. Because heroes aren’t measured by the number of enemies they defeat, but by the choices they make to reach their goal.
