From publisher blurb:
War has returned to the Woodland.
The Marquise de Cat led her armies to victory over many of the clearings, but the Eyrie Dynasty rises again to oppose her. And the mice, rabbits, and foxes of the Woodland do not sit idly by—the Woodland Allicance emerges, a homegrown rebellion to free the Woodland from any oppressors.
In the midst of this war, you and your friends—vagabonds all—travel between the clearings. You take on the jobs that no one else will or can do. You choose whom you serve, if anyone... and you may tip the balance of the war.
Root: The Tabletop Roleplaying Game is based on the award-winning Root: A Game of Woodland Might & Right board game. In Root: The TTRPG, you play vagabonds, going on adventures and changing the Woodland with your actions. This booklet is a sampling of the core rules of Root: The TTRPG, created for Free RPG Day. It has all the necessary instructions for how to play, as well as an entire prewritten clearing that will give you a strong starting situation for one or two sessions of play. This includes:
- Basic moves and rules to play
- Six pregenerated characters
- Important NPCs, locations, and conflicts
- Special weapon moves for combat
- Map and clearing generation systems
- A faction system to represent the war
