I've been working with The Lawful Neutral and David Schirduan over at Technical Grimoire to make a new RPG book titled Bridgetown!
What started as a random jam session with John over weird old medieval architecture last year led to us slowly cobbling together an entire campaign setting for the Troika! RPG, but you can use it for just about anything weird and wacky.
Bridgetown is a pastoral liminal setting, as we've taken to calling it. The whole world is a single massive Bridge suspended in nothingness between the endless Sky and the murky Under. On this infinite Bridge, there are countless weirdos and colorful characters to be found, inspired in part by the denizens of old fairytales, old school British fantasy, and our own bizarre collective sense of humor.
Imagine the Three Billy Goats Gruff as painted by Hieronymus Bosch, and you're basically there.
Bridgetown is a game of travel and exploration, even as the world tries to do everything it can to stop you from doing both: Tyrannical turnpike guilds erect massive gatehouses to divide the Bridge up into fiefs and rule them, creatures made of rarified reality bubble up from the Under like curious but extremely dangerous children, and the Bridge itself is slowly crumbling away into nothingness.
But until then, your bridge punk has plenty to do.
The book sports dozens of locations, NPCs, original spells and character backgrounds, a gigantic and wonderfully weird random "Weather" table, and referee advice on where and how to start in an infinite world like this.
We're nearing completion, and you'll have a way to purchase the finished (and damn beautiful, thanks to David and Charlie) hardcover in the near future.
The best place to go for updates is the official Bridgetown link up above, but you can also keep abreast by following us on any of our various social medias.
I really need to figure out how to start a tumblr soon...
