Hillfolk is the first game using the DramaSystem roleplaying rules engine. In a game of Hillfolk, players take the roles of Iron Age raiders struggling to protect and enrich their clan at a time of clashing empires.
In a DramaSystem game, players, aided by a Game Moderator (GM), collectively create a compelling, serial story of emotional need and conflict within a tightly-knit group of people.
What You Need
To play this game, you need:
5 - 8 participants
one deck of playing cards
a supply of poker chips or beads
1 red, 1 green, and 1 yellow token per participant
about a dozen tokens of a fourth color (I use blue)
as many index cards (or spare playing cards or collectible game cards) as you have players
time to weave an epic story
One participant, the GM, may find it handy to have a smartphone or laptop on hand.
