About Us

Ever wanted to create your own tabletop RPG? Imagine it: a gleaming, glorious system combining everything you love about gaming and dropping the crap you can’t stand. Embark on a D.I.Y. docu-quest for tabletop roleplaying perfection as we design, test, and rebalance our own RPG From Scratch! We chronicle our tabletop trials and errors, grapple with game design, explore the art of mechanics and storytelling, and adventure through epic playtesting campaigns. New episodes weekly!

Design Episode 35 :: Who's the Good Guy?

EOur setting lacks obvious protagonists, so we create a few. Are you more at home in a continent-spanning adventurer's guild? How about an ancient order of ascetics that has the trust of the people? No, you want to skulk through the city as a spy with a heart of gold! Whatever you or your players fancy, we've got the plot hooks to land 'em.
