Fortune’s Fool is the exciting ENnie award-winning role-playing game set in a fantastic Renaissance Europe filled with magic, mystery, and adventure. It features intuitive character creation and a unique Tarot-based resolution system that will have you hanging on to every draw of the cards! With the innovative Fate Twist system, players can directly alter the destinies of their characters in powerful and surprising ways, making every exploit truly their own!

We were interviewed by Pete Figtree of Ruthless Diastema and we talk in depth about Fortune's Fool.

While copies of the core rulebook are available at your local game store, we need your help to take the PDFs of our products to the next level! Donations to this Kickstarter will help fund an enhanced line of electronic Fortune's Fool products, optimized for all manner of devices, and including updates to the rules and new art. The optimization process will be handled by graphics arch-wizard Nathan Paoletta

 The optimized Fortune's Fool PDFs will be: 

  • Sized perfectly for everything from monitors to tablets to smart phones.
  • Enhanced with hypertext links for the most efficient playing experience. 
  • Layered to allow the removal of art for quicker viewing and easier printing.
  • Embellished with beautiful new art from Andrew DeFelice, Anna-Maria Jung, and Chris Kimball

For those of you who want to choose the character art reward levels, here is some of the great work of our artists! Links to more of their work is under each sample.

Stretch goals we are aiming for:

$4500 - Making Fortune's Fool available in kindle, epub, and ebook formats. Available to the $10 level and above.

$7500 - Pantheon Press will create a completely new product and optimized PDF "Tales of the Ganges" which will be a Fortune's Fool supplement detailing the region of India with new spells, skills, and many new exciting components to add to your Fortune's Fool campaign. This will be added to the $20 level and above.

Special thanks goes to Alan Gagnon for video creation and Chris Kimball for reward level art creation!

Risks and challenges

Risks and challenges I hope with this project will be very minimal. This is a purely electronic project and all of the deliverables will be electronic. I am hoping this will give us time to deal with delivering quality without having to worry about shipping costs, storage of books, late deliveries, etc.
