Sounds like from your writing that it's a funky set of rules.

Maybe. But they're fun. Played four games, need to finish my between-games campaign stuff and figure out where to go next. Still enjoying it quite a bit.

Solo gaming... Suddenly I feel extremely tempted!

Thanks for writing about this. Need to check the rules.

Forget the 6'x4' game, focus on the story beyond that. Because fantasy matters.

Spoiler: it doesn't end well for everybody.





I wonder what's next...

A hilarious game! Judging from the last pic in the blog, it didn't end well for practically anybody: the table is littered with bodies. :lol:

Yes, it was a bit of a bloodbath. And so was last night's follow-up.

Tonight, though, I expect to be the dramatic conclusion to The Saga of The Low Rollers. They're going up against the toughest opponent they've ever faced....

Very interesting!

I've been considering using a ruleset called Fabula, you can find it on it's group at Facebook. It's interesting - I've been working out with it for a while now and should try uploading some battle reports soon enough!
Seeee todo este ouro... for MEU!
