When it comes to fantasy role playing, most of the big names are fairly crunchy following the D&D and Pathfinder molds. While games like FATE do offer a more cinematic take, it does so through the lens of a universal game system. Tavern Tales by Dabney Bailey is looking to change that.
Tavern Tales is an exciting new fantasy-themed roleplaying game that follows these principles:
Stay simple, intuitive, and tactical
Enable well-rounded characters
Think cinematically, not mathematically
Grow with ongoing content updates
Tavern Tales is a player-driven, cinematic game that empowers you to play the way you always wished you could play. Have you ever wanted to ride a fire-breathing dragon, but you couldn't because the rules won't let you? Tavern Tales throws that out the window! You can build virtually any character imaginable.
The folks behind the Kickstarter reached out to me about plugging the project, and it looks interesting enough I figured I'd at least spread the word. So maybe head on over and see if Tavern Tales is a game you'd be interested in helping out.
