About the event

Root: RPG, based on the award-winning board game Root: A Woodland Game of Might and Right by Leder Games, throws you into the midst of intense political struggles between cats, birds, mice, and more. You play as a Vagabond - an outcast of a more 'civilized' society - destined to venture throughout the woodland fulfilling jobs, having adventures, and tipping the scales in the struggle for power between the factions. The game focuses on fun adventures and escapades involving big fights, cunning heists and pledging allegiances to the various factions in the Woodland. 

This adventure brings you to Bertram's Cove, a town ruled by the Marquisate commander Astrid Montague. Though once an independent town, it has been used as a supply hub for the ever-increasing military presence of the Marquise De Cat over the last few years. Recently, rebel pirates bearing the colours of the Woodland Allegiance have begun raiding the ships and blowing up the supply lines with explosives, causing chaos on the water. A hefty bounty has been put on the head of their leader; the mysterious Captain Sparrowhawk. Your band of Vagabonds arrives in town in the midst of this tense conflict, and their actions may be the very thing to end it once and for all. 

Though no prior knowledge of the rules or background of the game is required, players familiar with the Powered by the Apocalypse system (Dungeon Worlds, Monster of the Week, Masks, etc) will find the ruleset familiar. The game will be taught in full prior to playing and pre-generated characters will be provided.

RPG Sessions are £8 and include the time playing the game as well as a small hot drink or soft drink of choice. We do charge a £3 non-refundable deposit in order to reserve your space in the game.
