The war-fires are lit.
Greystaff: Legends is a table top role-playing game where epic fantasy meets the gloomy, unforgiving face of war.
Set in the realms of Khaelavar, Greystaff: Legends lets you take on the role of the Mortal Hero, ready to face the grim hordes of enemies that beset the Free Kingdoms of the West. Whether you venture into Khaelavar armed with a blade, a bow, knowledge of archaic secrets or simply your wits, you will be tested many times. Survive - and you may leave your mark. Fall, and the only monuments to your glories will be the leaves that cover your bones.
What is a Mortal Hero?
In Greystaff: Legends, war is a brutal and ever-loyal companion. She tears at flesh, feasts on the foolish bravery of the young, and saps the strength of the mighty. Amid the din of battle, the greatest of heroes falter and die; their banners to be taken up by other hands.
The combat system in Greystaff: Legends reflects the dangers of battle. For the vast majority of characters, the violent lives of war, adventure and fame are heroic - and tragically short. Many of you have played in game systems where a warrior can take a dozen arrows and shrug them off like a mild cold. If that is what you are looking for here, read no further.
For those of you who are still reading, do not be dismayed. Within these rules you will find a system tailored to suit a fast-paced, realistic portrayal of the life of a hero in all of its tragic glories. The Mortal Hero is yours to play, from inauspicious beginning to fateful end.
