Wardens of the Sundered Realms (WSR) is a table-top role-playing game that tells the story of a Company of Wardens, professional beast hunters in service to the High King of the Western Imperium. The Wardens travel the lands of Avren-Yara, also known as The Sundered Realms, tracking down beasts and meting out the High King’s justice.
The game is played in a series of phases that comprise travel to a hamlet beset by a beast, investigating the various aspects and behaviors of the beast, overcoming obstacles such as the beast’s minions, and finally confronting the beast in the wild or in its lair.
WSR is a narrative-first, “rules light,” story-telling game. It is not a tactical combat simulation. Dice are used to resolve uncertainty and challenges, but the scope of the dice rolls and tests is pulled back from resolving individual actions to resolving entire encounters and phases of play.
WSR is powered by Lex Kim Bobrow’s Caltrop Core. The system uses 4-sided dice to resolve tests.
The game draws inspiration from shows and movies like The Witcher and Brotherhood of the Wolf as well as games such as Agon.
