A weird-fantasy roleplaying game setting. Compatible with Old-School Essential Classic & Advanced Fantasy, for characters level 2–3.
Night Land is a realm where the sun has extinguished and its ashes lay strewn across a landscape. One after one, the stars in the universe are entering their ultimate stages of life, and existence is evaporating into memory. Night Land may take place far in the future... or even in the past. It is a dream-like realm existing without plot, which referees can weave to their will.
Night Land is presented as a pointcrawl, where players travel between nodes on the map representing situations and locations of interest. The points can represent adventure sites, major encounters, or unusual landmarks and geography. The pointcrawl is an abstract system of organizing a map to keep land-based adventuring simple. Referees can adjust it for traditional hex-based play if preferred.
