Modiphius has announced the release of the Legends of Avallen – Quickstart Guide, a FREE PDF which enables you to sample the RPG which is inspired by an era of Celtic mythology in Roman Britain.
The Quickstart launches on Modphius.net, Modiphius.US, and DriveThruRPG and if you like what you see, you can also order copies of the marvellous print core rulebook which is available from Modiphius.net and has just arrived and started shipping from Modiphius.US. Here are the details on the Quickstart.
Inspired by Celtic mythology in Roman Britain, Legends of Avallen is a roleplaying game that takes you to a mystical island occupied by faithless invaders. For now, peace has been called but it balances on a sword’s edge as all seek to tame the Otherworld—a parallel realm home to fae, demons, dragons, and gods.
On Avallen, the greatest legends rise from humble beginnings, and yours will be no different. The shepherd ordained as a Druid, the bard reborn as a Fae Touched, the thief who found glory as a Gladiator. What tales will be told of you? Will you mend the rifts between worlds, or delve into their depths for fame, fortune, and power?
This free 43-page PDF Quickstart Guide features:
- An introduction to the game world and the mystical island of Avallen
- The basic rules of the game where a standard deck of playing cards is used to resolve actions, including tempting fate and complications
- A comprehensive rules reference sheet
- 5 pre-made characters
- The complete apprentice-level adventure: ‘Quest for The Sealing Stone’!
In the full version of the game (available here [US and UK link, depending on store]), you’ll find much more, including character creation rules; twenty martial and magic schools; ten legendary paths; as well as rules for magic, rituals, conflicts, chases, journeys, equipment, crafting, and an extensive GM’s guide with a Celtic bestiary!
