Fabuland: Main Page

From RPGnet
Jump to: navigation, search

delcnamonro Fabuland is the first game designed according to the ideas I've been presenting in my RPGnet column, Rough Quests. It's also an attempt to fill a void I need to cover: I need a simple rpg to play with my 7-years old daughter, a way to introduce her into our hobby.

My daughter loves stories. She loves old-fashioned fables. Fabuland is placed precisely in such a setting, it's the game world for furry fables. (Yes, I said furry. If you don't like furry, this may not be the place for you.) This means that Fabuland is a a fantasy game world and a rpg game system where players inpersonate intelligent animals. Needless to say, the origin of the expression Fabuland is 'fabula', Portuguese for 'fable'.

As a game world there's not much more to say. In a game intended for children one does not need to work out detailed specifics. These will accumulate through play. As a game system Fabuland will implement an highly simplified set of the ideas I've been presenting in my column.
