Subtitle: Supernatural Horror RPG
Sabres & Witchery is a role-playing game nominally set in Europe (although it could be elsewhere) at the end of the English Civil War through to approximately the Napoleonic Wars era. The time-period of Sabres & Witchery is not specific – it could be any time from the late 1600’s to the early 1800’s; the "Age of Enlightenment" through to the "Industrial Revolution". You don’t even need to clearly define it before you start play.
It is based on a set of 'old school' fantasy role playing rules, which itself was based on the first fantasy role playing game. You are free to publish your own adventures, house-rules, and any other sort of materials designed for this game. Guidelines and requirements are at the end of the book.
From the Introduction:
It is assumed that characters in the game will be mainly treading paths in wild out-of-the-way places – tangled forests, wind-swept moors, dark mountain valleys and storm-ravaged coasts. They are hunting horrors that other people prefer to avoid and those horrors are only out at night, in the darkness and where they can’t be discovered.
