The time has come to join the Woodland War! Root: The Roleplaying Game is now available via PDF and Preorder! Go to DriveThruRPG to download your PDF, or preorder your physical copy from our webstore today.
Based on the Root: A Game of Woodland Might & Right board game and officially licensed by Leder Games, Root: The RPG brings the tales of the Woodland to your table! We successfully Kickstarted Root: The RPG in October 2019, raising over $600,000! It’s been a wild journey over the past two years, but we remain humbled by the support of all our fans. And now we are so excited to be able to share this game with all of you!
Check out all the woodland goodies now available on DTRPG and our webstore:
Root: The RPG Core Book contains
- Nine unique playbooks, each built to help you create a vagabond whose exploits will echo in the Woodland for generations to come.
- Easy-to-follow rules for all manner of fantasy adventure, including roguish feats, reputation and travel mechanics, and more.
- Innovative mechanics for managing equipment, weapons, and combat that make your choices matter both tactically and narratively.
- Detailed instructions for running Root: The RPG—crafting combats, managing factions, and more—alongside a full clearing, Gelilah’s Grove.
Travelers & Outsiders is a supplement that expands the core game to include:
- Ten new playbooks, expanding the types of vagabonds you can play to include pirates, raiders, scholars, heretics, raconteurs, and more.
- Four new expansion factions—The Riverfolk Company, Lizard Cult, Grand Duchy, and Corvid Conspiracy—for you to add to any campaign.
- Dozens of expanded moves and tags, including weapons skills, roguish feats, natures, drives, connections, equipment tags, and pre-made gear.
- Robust faction turn mechanics that bring the setting to life as factions seize holdings, build structures, and plot mischief across the Woodland.
- Two new clearings—Heartwood and Sundew Bend—that focus on adventures involving the new expansion factions and their conflicts.
