86 rebel crown serpent & oak.JPG

Rebel Crown | Rebel Crown - Serpent & Oak by Narrative Dynamics
  • SYSTEM: Forged in the Dark
  • PRODUCT TYPE: softcover core rulebook
  • RETAIL PRICE: $20/$15
  • DESCRIPTION: In Rebel Crown, PCs engage in courtly intrigue, obsessive ambition, and perilous conflict. One PCs is the Claimant, former heir to the throne who was betrayed by their family and robbed of their rightful titles. Other PCs are stalwart allies: wise chancellor, devoted knight, idealistic noble, vengeful soldier, or opportunistic outlaw. Conflicting duties and ambitions will push them into points of tension, but their commitment to the Claimant’s ascent ties them together. NPCs of the cursed and fractured Empire includes nobles, outlaws, and undead wraiths. As a Forged in the Dark game, it leverages a resolution and advancement system that is character-driven and full of interesting compromises while developing a unique focus on character relationships and a finite campaign arc. Serpent & Oak provides two alternate campaign frameworks. The Oak Campaign takes place in the Kingdom of Dol and follows the Darach Claimant’s rise to power. The Darach Claimant begins with a formidable base of power: with a province and a standing levy of their own. This is an ideal campaign for players looking to play a full campaign, but without the humble beginnings of the Eagle campaign outlined in the main rule book. The Serpent Campaign of House Nathair is an even greater divergence from the core campaign structure. It eschews full character creation and provides pre-generated characters to allow the group to jump into play even faster. The Serpent Campaign also provides more GM support than is possible in the open-sandbox of the other campaigns. This is an ideal campaign for players looking to experience Rebel Crown in just a few sessions.

Surprised that I hadn't heard about the PF2e "Book of the Dead" before this. Thank you for letting me know!

Maybe Knights of Lastwall will be of interest as well:

When the lich Tar-Baphon escaped from his prison, he destroyed the vigilant nation of Lastwall. Though its cities fell, the people of Lastwall didn’t falter!

This book contains information on joining the knights, details on important members of the organization, new options for knightly characters, and details for playing a valiant, knightly campaign!

“We are thrilled to publish this book, with its undead hunting theme, on the heels of the Pathfinder Book of the Dead rulebook.
