The great Spider Queen lies dead at the border of the human lands,
laid low by the order of your mother, Queen Alyria.
Now, fearing for your life in the ensuing turmoil, you have fled the palace at Bastow,
seeking the relative safety of anonymity on the open road.
What secrets will you uncover as you explore the continent you’ve never seen?
What creatures will you meet, and how will your fates intertwine, for good or for ill?
A complete roleplaying game for one GM and one player, set in a world of gritty fantasy where magic is slowly slipping away.
- Inspired by old-school fantasy
- Focused on nonviolent resolution
- Random tables on nearly every page
- Powered by the Apocalypse
No playbooks; just select your stat levels and starting goals, then roll up your HP, RP, and Gold.
Provides an "OSR experience" of exploration and limited initial information, while promoting options for conflict resolution other than hacking and slashing. NPCs always want something from you, and probably don't want to die.
While there are multiple examples of PBtA "moves" throughout the text, these are not codified for the player... the GM is encouraged to adhere to rulings not rules, and come up with a robust set of consequences for dice rolls on-the-fly.
56 pages, softcover, packaged with a character sheet and three full-color maps.
Includes PDF which will be emailed once physical item ships
