Description Edit | History

From the publisher's website:

Tales of Blades and Heroes is a fast-playing, uncomplicated set of fantasy RPG rules based on the origins-nominated Song of Blades and Heroes miniature rules. Its key features are:

  • minimal bookkeeping;
  • a character sheet that fits on a 3x5” index card;
  • d6 based skill and action system;
  • simple enough for newcomers, yet sophisticated enough to satisfy expert players;
  • no classes or levels: create any character with a point system;
  • combat is based on a single d6 roll and damage tables: play faster, meaningful battles where your tactical decisions matter;
  • play with miniatures, counters or paper figures;
  • online support via the song of blades yahoo group and an active community of players and creators;
  • story and character-based rewards: gain experience for being imaginative and playing in character;
  • no spells to memorize: the freeform magic system encourages ingenuity and lets you create any magical effects through the combination of power words.

Note: this book has all you need to begin playing, but we are working on a GM’s book too.

More Information Edit | History
