The Kickstarter campaign for our new book, The Vagrant's Guide to Surviving the Wild is now live! Over 140 pages of mounts, new classes, gear, spells and prayers, monsters... a little of everything for both players and game masters.


In this final preview, we'll finish exploring the iconic characters of the four new classes, and how they engage with the new rules.

Ramiro smells disgusting, right buddy? Like fresh flowers and weak wine. What a dork.

"Chira smells like horsemeat. Easy now; she's the only one who knows where we're going. We can eat her when we get there.

"Qacha's alright. You seem to like her, anyway. But don't you trust her, with her treats and her growls. She won't look after you, not like I will. Got it?

"What a damn mess this is. Yeah, I'm glad to get away from that reeking town, too. We just needed to find a little... extra muscle before we head back home. We wouldn't want the pack to get any ideas. These idiots should do nicely, keep trouble off our backs. Just long enough for us to get in, get what's ours, and get going.

"Hey, do you smell that? Let's go kill ourselves some lunch!"
