Are you an adventurer?
So are you brave enough to fight the undead army, delving deeper in unknown dungeons hoping to find treasure, fame and glory? I may have a task for you.
There are perils ahead, and your survival is not assured, but I promise the rewards are more than enough. Face your own Dark Fate, adventurer, and discover a land of struggle where a common man may one day become a true hero!
The book you hold is a testament to the epic worlds of adventure. In these pages you’ll learn the Dark Fate of a land that is recovering from the death of the Goddess of Magic, where mystical and fantastic creatures no longer live alongside the mortals—trying to survive the ravaging undead creatures of the dreadful Necropolis is not only a matter of hope, but also of luck.
So grab your pen and paper, be ready to roll your dice, and discover the world of Dark Fate!
This roleplaying game is a Swords & Wizardry™ Campaign Setting (but may be used with other retroclones too!), and also contains some variant rules specially designed to enhance your adventures.
