About this project

Wenches and Warlords is a tabletop game like Dungeons and Dragons where the players make characters and conquer grand adventures. While there are many games like this most are either incredibly expensive, bogged down with hours of painful math or are just broken.

Wenches and Warlords will be free for anyone to play and download as a PDF. Starting from the ground up creating a unique tabletop game Wenches and Warlords is designed to play smoothly with minimal math, small numbers and hold a deleveled feel while still letting player characters progress and grow stronger as they adventure.

Another unique aspect of the game is that the story and roleplay focus is intertwined with the very core mechanics rewarding players subtly for every action they do. Wenches and Warlords combines many of the best features from the many table tops out there as well as introduces new content durability and useful professions that actually affect game play on a daily basis.

However even with the introduction of new features another one of the primary goals of Wenches and Warlords is to keep the game rules-light using as few die rolls as possible operating on automatic shared bookkeeping and small numbers to keep the flow consistent in and out of combat.

Traditional proficiencies are entirely non-existent instead the system uses a set of six trade crafts and five ability scores to determine the outcome of any checks that may come up in the storytelling. Classes are also non-existent, characters all starting as simple peasants or predecessors of past characters. Making the possibilities of character growth and archetypes limitless. Ever want to play a fiery guitarist who sold their soul to a devil-god? How about a mysterious gunslinging shepard? Here’s your chance!

As the players explore the world they will be able to make such choices, adapting to their surroundings or fulfilling an untold destiny changing from simple nameless peasants to heroes and warlords!

The Kickstarter campaign will pay for the editing software needed to create a clean and professional looking book as well as help cover the cost of unique illustrations. Further funding will also go towards providing a safe and easy to access website where the PDF version can be found and downloaded free. Additionally advertisement may be needed to help grow the palyer base enough to hopefully have Wenches and Warlords be reconised as an offical table top by sights like roll20.net making it eaiser for players to come together and play. Any additional funding beyond the prospected need will go towards further devlopment projects such as settign the ground works for a coinsiding Monster Manual or even Pre-Built campaigns!

Currently the actual mechanics of Wenches and Warlords are all ready finished and playtests have begun! So far it is coming together without a hitch and should be ready to release as an alpha version for public playtesting within a few months.

Risks and challenges

Challenges involved in getting Wenches and Warlords up and running are primarily networking issues. Contacting the right illustrators, web designers and websites as well as getting the word out to potential players seeking a free and fun table top game to play online or at home.
