The Vagrant’s Guide to Surviving the Wild is a Torchbearer Sagas supplement for travelers in the wilderness. The nearby ruins are now emptied—picked clean by freebooters and ne’er-do-wells who improved their lot with plundered treasure. If you’re going to join their ranks, that means finding loot that nobody’s gotten to, and that means you’ve got a long slog ahead of you.

Check out these reviews:

 "A double handful of new town types and destinations, an assortment of new stocks and classes, an exciting alternate set of rules that breathe life into your mounts and make them more than just another boring piece of equipment. Every page of this book is a treasure trove."

— Dave J.

"If you want to expand your torchbearer game into a greater world, and create the same grit and danger as the dungeons, this is the book to buy. "

— Brant M.

"Fantastic addition to a fantastic RPG. Well worth the price."
