This forum is for general, random chatter. Feel free to discuss pretty much anything here. Any game being run is also on topic.

One System, Any Setting!

Heroes and Hardships is a skill-based D10 dice pool RPG system that will support any setting or story you can imagine! Heroes and Hardships is built for heroic adventure and deadly campaigns!

The Heroes and Hardships Quickstart Guide contains everything you need to start playing in a vast number of different settings. This fully illustrated 96-page book could be used as a fully realized RPG on its own, but offers only a fraction of what you will find in the Heroes and Hardships Core Ruebook to come. The Heroes and Hardships Quickstart Guide is 100% PAY WHAT YOU WANT! Get it here: https://bit.ly/hnhquickstart

The Heroes and Hardships Quickstart Guide includes:

* Character creation rules and options;
* Detailed rules for deadly combat, including the Heroes and Hardships innovative Action Point system, as well as over 30 offensive and defensive combat actions;
* Dozens of skills and abilities;
* Nearly a hundred wound effects;
* Dozens of weapons and pieces of armor from across multiple genres;
* A bestiary of adversaries to get you started;
* A fully linked table of contents, a fully bookmarked PDF, and an index;
* A five page character sheet;
* And much more!

Grab a handful of d10s and form your dice pool; epic adventures await!

It doesn't sound like my cup of tea, but best of luck with it. I hope it proves popular.

A new release that's compatible with the Quickstart and the upcoming core book.

Freedom from the yoke!

William Wallace's story of legend began in Lanark Castle where the Scottish patriot first rose up in rebellion against the English. The Actions of Lanark is a 40-page sandbox adventure that allows players to assume the role of Scottish rebels, their allies, and perhaps even William Wallace himself.

Wallace also contains a Setting Primer with the most important events from the First War of Scottish Independence. The Setting Primer helps Game Masters develop a campaign in early 14th century Scotland.

Wallace is a setting-adventure book for Heroes and Hardships. This setting-adventure is special as it only requires the Heroes and Hardships Quickstart Guide which is Pay What You Want. Wallace will also be 100% compatible with the Heroes and Hardship Core Rulebook upon release.

Grab your claymore and take the field against the southern invaders or use your glib tongue and engage in the deadly political arena of the Scottish nobility. You will find all of the following included.

The Actions at Lanark, a 40-age sandbox adventure which gives players total freedom to complete their task as they wish;
Over 20 medieval NPCs with full stat blocks, including William Wallace, Robert the Bruce, and John Comyn the Red;
A setting primer of the First War of Scottish Independence;
The major events of the war detailed with many possible ways that player characters may be involved;
New rules for breaking objects such as gates and walls, wielding siege equipment, and using castle defenses like boiling oil and falling stones.

I bought the quickstart. I have yet to give it a read, but if you guys start a campaign, I may want to join if it takes my interest.
