Root: Talon Hill Quickstart is out and is a 32-page freebie for the Root RPG.
The Apocalypse World Engine-powered game from Magpie is based on the Root: A Game of Woodland Might & Right board game in which PCs are vagabonds or those animals with different degrees of freedom.
In this quickstart, political turmoil and a conflict of succession threatens the fate and stability of the clearing of Talon Hill (and possibly all of the Eyrie!). In the midst of the Woodland War, the clearing is locked into conflict as three contenders of the Kingfisher family fight for their claim to the ashwood throne of Talon Hill. As vagabonds, you must navigate these dangerous and complicated state of affairs. You choose whom you will serve, or assist, if anyone… and you may tip the balance of the war in this key location!
The quickstart has the basic moves and rules to play. You don’t need the core rulebook to play Talon Hill expansion.
Six pre-generated characters, NPCs, locations and conflicts are woven into the drama. Speaking of conflict, the download contains special weapon moves for combat.
All three are available in a handy Quickstart Bundle.
