The Wizard's Grimoire

So it was that Aibesta of the Two Courts compiled her notes into a Signature, and arrayed herself for travel. To her signature she added a selection of useful magics to speed and comfort her on her way, and she set out for consultation with her mentor, the great scholar Wistride the Aur...

She died at Haidor, overcome by Murderous Ghosts set upon her by Justu the Necromant. Her grimoire was found later by a treasure-scavenger, and added to the collection of a scholar-nun of the Monast. At that order's dissolution, it was sold to pay for rites of indemnification and funeration, then stolen by a reaver in transit over the Salt Road of Brash, then carried to various parts by a variety of persons, some virtuous, some bold, some sly.

By its particular and circuitous route it has reached, four centuries and more later, you.

In The Wizard's Grimoire, you're a conjurer, scholar, rogue, and minor wizard, and you've come into possession of an ancient and powerful grimoire, the Signature of Aibesta of the Two Courts. Will it see you to triumph and the achievement of your every ambition, or will you destroy yourself in the pursuit?

This game was originally made for the March of the Wizards 2k19 game jam.

The Barbarian's Bloody Quest

A wizard once came to the mountainside village where you were born and lived. You were a child. You remember the wizard as a terrible, nightmare figure — man or woman, beautiful or grotesque, you'll never remember. Your parents hid you and you couldn't see what happened. The wizard summoned fearsome creatures in armor who butchered your family and all the people you ever knew, butchered many and enslaved the rest for the wizard's use. You stayed hidden and they never found you...

In The Barbarian's Bloody Quest, you're a killer, a wanderer, an outlander among civilized people. Your quest is to revenge yourself upon the wizard who wronged you. Will you achieve it?

I'm eager to trade! If you also make games and want to trade, I'm into it, drop me a line.

I've been reading through and I like what I see! I can't wait to play it!

Just to note, it doesn't seem to specify anywhere what die to use, except a mention in passing of "a 6-sided die" on the Volunteer's Guide.

Oops! Yes, a 6-sided die.
