Bandit Camp’s Fairy Trails is a Powered by the Apocalypse game in which you play fairies travelling around on a magical cart, larking about and having adventures.
The Kickstarter is down to the final days and has made its funding goal. You can leap on board at the project page.
Old Mr Foggyhat has chased the fairies out from their home in the forest, and now they must look for a new home. On the way, the magical refugees will make friends gather allies, and in the end, can reclaim what is there.
Using the tools in PbtA, all shrunk down to itty-bitty fairy size, we’ve made a little game that’s just bursting with silly adventures for you and your buddies to play together. There are different types of Fairies, Fairy Courts, Magical spells, Magical skills, and all manner of things to help you make the bestest fairy tales you possibly can! Want to check it out?
You can download a free quickstart of Fairy Trails from DriveThruRPG.
Of course, if you want to play a game where you pretty much ignore Old Mr Foggyhat, you can. You can play in a modern world, a fantasy world, a historical one. You can play in a setting where people know about fairies, suspect fairies might be real or have no idea.
It’s up to you, and the Fairy Trails adjusts as per your session zero.
You can play a whole range of fairies, such as; geargiks, will-o-wisps, sproutling, nixies, pookas and pixies. Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter, Sun, Moon or Star Court fairies are all welcome as well.
If some of those fairy names are as new to you as they are to me, then the Japanese headquarters of the game might explain the scope of possibilities. There’s a wealth of culture here and the default prices are in Yen.
Pledge ¥2,000 (about £14) to get the PDF and a coupon for at-cost printing. In other words, Bandit Camp is not making a mark-up on your physical format, but you have shipping to pay.
A pledge of ¥3,500 (about £23) adds the Kickstarter only Patron printing with thank you letter. There have been some exclusive pledges, with room for only one backer, but they’ve gone.
All going well, Fairy Trails will ship in June 2022.
