Oh snap – Sword and Sorcery using the Mutant: Year Zero system. So fucking down for this.

“The glorious BOXED SET will give players freedom to hexcrawl the world the way they want while still taking part in an epic campaign that will, in the end, let them decide the fate of the Forbidden Land. Also, the unique rules for exploration, survival, basebuilding and campaign play can easily be ported to your own favorite game world.”

Checking all my boxes.

  1. >_< I don't know how I feel about this. I bought M:Y0 which lived up to the hype. I backed Coriolis which did not include the same thematic tightness of M:Y0. Tales of the Loop is somewhere in between. A little bit more shallow than I would of liked. It plays a lot like BitD though. I was at the point where I though maybe FL made M:Y0 by happenstance. But this talks about base building and hexcrawling and cursed lands. I didn't think they were going to be able to draw me back in. But this looks great. In the past the pure digital level of backing left something to be desired. The pdfs of the cards for Coriolis didn't include the backs of some cards, which included instructions for how to use the cards. But I'm not sure if I was to shell out for physical backing... But hexcrawl basebuilding...

  3. None of their followup games have been as strong as Mutant Year Zero. Coriolis is close, Genlab Alpha was a letdown, and I just bought Tales from the Loop out of duty. It’s … probably fine. Kind of not my jam. It just felt like they were putting out games that were not carefully designed but loaded up with gorgeous art.

    Based on what they’re describing this game as, though, I have high hopes!

  5. I’m attracted to the idea of having a existing situation as part of the rulebook, should prevent all that mindless wandering I’ve experienced in edge of the empire. I have reservations about Fria Ligan’s systems though, if it’s anything like coriolis.

    Gotta say though, it’s awesome seeing a newish RPG company doing so well.
