Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

This will be an introductory session of Torchbearer, based on Mouse Guard and Burning Wheel, where we'll be making characters and playing through a short adventure.

Torchbearer is a riff on the early model of fantasy roleplaying games. In it, you take on the role of a fortune-seeking adventurer. To earn that fortune, you must explore forlorn ruins, brave terrible monsters and retrieve forgotten treasures. However, this game is not about being a hero. It is not about fighting for what you believe. This game is about exploration and survival. You may become a hero. You might have to fight for your ideals. But to do either of those things, you must prove yourself in the wilds. Because there are no jobs, no inheritance, no other opportunities for deadbeat adventurers like you. This life is your only hope to survive this world.

The tone and setting of the game harken back to old-school D&D, but the mechanics are very different, using d6 dice pools, and encouraging character development, resource management, and a unique skill system that allows the player to decide how to mold their character through actual play.
