Root: The Roleplaying Game (Talon Hill)

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Root: the Roleplaying Game is a game of woodland creatures fighting for money, justice, and freedom from powers far greater than them. You play vagabonds, outcasts from the normal society of the woodlands who have come to live in the spaces between, whether that’s in the forests themselves or on the fringes of society.

In this session based on the Talon Hill Quickstart, the vagabonds enter a fox clearing trapped in the turmoil of a major succession crisis! Thurgud, Theodora, and Gaius, three royal birds claiming lineages from the ancient and important Kingfishers' family, all squabble over who will rule the roost since Lady Morgana Kingfisher passed away without naming an heir. They've all turned their eyes to the historical seat of Eyrie power in Talon Hill, Augustine Castle, where supposedly the grand relics -- and symbols of office -- of the Kingfisher family lay buried. Will the Vagabonds aid one of the would-be successors in the greatest heist the Eyrie have ever known? Who else in Talon Hill could stake their own claim as a long lost heir? And while the birds are away, the mice will play; as power shifts in Talon Hill, the local crime syndicate and a newly established lizard cult orphanage both have their own agendas. With Thurgud's High Guard, Theodora's Silver Talons, and Gaius' Riverfolk mercenaries all in town, it's getting to be VERY crowded!
