  • Card-based: Every spell, weapon, and item has its own card - combat moves fast because players can see what their available choices are right in front of them.

  • Noble-Bright: Action takes place in tactically rich outdoors scenes, not cramped dungeon corridors. 

  • Rules-Light: Everything players need fits on a 2 page Quickstart Guide. Whether it's your first time leading an RPG or you're a veteran DM introducing role playing to the next generation, learning to play is a snap. 

  • Open-License: meaning you can write and publish your own adventures, and even sell them!

  • Free-Forever: The Print and Play will always be free.
