So here’s that thing I was tellin’ y’all about. It’s a free PDF, so your only sacrifice is a bit of memory on your computing machine!
This is a tabletop game setting by cool bro Sean Patrick Fannon. It is Heroic High Fantasy type stuff. If you liked Lord of the Rings but were like, “Y’know what would make this better? More ladies/good guy orcs/wingy elves/cat people/crocodile people!” this is probably the game for you.
It does have a tendency to focus on European based culture, but there’s options for some Characters of Colour (as you can see from a lot of my own character drawings). One thing I really like is that, for the most part, the good/evil struggle is based on choices, not birth: there are few incorrigibly evil people, and nobody’s unswervingly good.
Another thing I really like is the Dregordians (aforementioned crocodile people), who are basically the best thing ever. They’re kinda like Vulcans + Jungle Tribes and are therefore the coolest race.
I hope y’all will give this setting a try!
