Feast of Legends is a Tabletop RPG Produced By... Wendy's!

"In a realm threatened by frozen beef, only true heroes will rise to defend freshness." It's not often that fast food chains produce tabletop roleplaying games, but it seems Wendy's has decided to be the first! It's a free 97-page PDF and you can download it right now.

Yeah but anybody who didn’t think this smelled like a full-on marketing push after the first page isn’t paying much attention.

In addition to the Ice Jester being pretty nakedly Ronald McDonald, the Creepingvale probably being about the creepy Burger King, there's sass all over the place (the Order of the Frosty is hilarious).

And you not only get in-game buffs for eating Wendy's out of game, you get DEBUFFS for eating something else. Even friggin' chips.

On the map I also see references to Panda Express, Jack-in-the-Box, Long John Silver’s, Carl’s Jr./Hardee’s, and “roast beach” (Arby’s?).

As long as it's not a bite of frozen beef, apparently.
What cracks me up about all that is, frozen patties aren’t actually any worse than “fresh”. It’s not like veggies, where you often lose some of the crispness. In fact, you can make a much juicier, more succulent, burger by cooking from frozen.

But it’s all just marketing.

And I’m all about dumb crap like this.

Sweet mother of Pelor. I just downloaded it, and it checks out. 100% legit. It's 97 pages of fully-detailed, campy, unbridled awesomeness. There's character creation options, class features, maps, equipment, game mechanics, the whole thing. It manages to somehow take itself seriously while not taking itself seriously, at the same time. It is both a mockery and a celebration of our hobby. It's really, truly impressive. I kinda want to get a POD hardcopy of it now, just because of the sheer audacity.

Well-played, Wendy.

Well-played.

Wendy's is actually pretty well known for launching zingers at it's competitors on Twitter. So this is no real surprise here.
 


As an Australian how is Wendy's?
Our Hungry Jacks known as Burger King in the States is great. They actually use fresh ingredients.
Our Maccas tastes like cardboard and tastes artificial.

You know, it being part of a full-on marketing push like that... makes it less cool.

One of the reasons I boggled at this is because this cannot have been cheap to produce. All of the art and the writing - over 90 pages - and actual game design and development had to be done (even as you can see its built on a mostly standard d20 style game engine).

It would have to be part of a bigger marketing push. If it's at all successful I wouldn't be surprised to see more of these characters. They had to have spent some advertising coin on all this work.

It was once and still sometimes is pretty great.

Wendy's is the fast food equivalent of the classic American dinner burger, which means it tastes more like what you would get at a truck stop or small town diner than any of the other fast food options. It started out as a limited menu restaurant and at one time was as good as Five Guys used to be (we're talking 35 years ago or so), but they've had problems maintaining their quality level both as they expanded and in particular as they expanded their menu to more items.

McDonalds is an example of the stripped down flavorless fast food burger, mostly eaten by children. Burger King by contrast is trying, but largely failing, to produce a fast food version of a homestyle backyard grilled burger. Still better than McDonalds though.

Here's a nice musical comparison of them:
