Our Vale of Discontent is a community-based RPG setting featuring sentient oozes, solarpunk vistas, rioting union workers, and a story-telling fungi with no name.
Our Vale of Discontent details a community on the brink of war with itself. Two tribes brought to conflict over their legacies. While the players may choose sides, the focus is not on war but on community. Will the adventurers ally themselves with the Pingks and Silico’s vanity project, band together with the Drpock with their ooze-merchandising enterprise, or join forces with the discontent uprising from both tribes?
Designed to be droppable into almost any campaign, this is a setting that focuses on being evocative over exhaustive. Broadly usable with any old school system as well as 5e. The focus is not just on the fantastical world, but on what that means to the players and how it interacts with their emotions.
