Hillfolk – A Game of Iron Age Drama, hardback roleplaying game, by Robin D. Laws
“In an arid badlands, the hill people hunger. Your neighbours have grain, cattle, gold. You have horses and spears, courage and ambition. Together with those you love and hate, you will remake history or die. With the Hillfolk roleplaying game, you and your group weave an epic, ongoing saga of high-stakes interpersonal conflict that grows richer with every session.
Using the DramaSystem rules engine, from acclaimed designer Robin D. Laws, which takes the basic structure of interpersonal conflict underlying fiction, movies and television and brings it to the world of roleplaying, a stunning talent roster brings you 30 additional series settings from Cthulhu cult family drama to ninjas, pirates, and steampunk cowboys, offering years of play value.
Hillfolk is the first game using the DramaSystem roleplaying rules engine. In a game of Hillfolk, players take the roles of Iron Age raiders struggling to protect and enrich their clan at a time of clashing empires.
In a DramaSystem game, players, aided by a Game Moderator (GM), collectively create a compelling, serial story of emotional need and conflict within a tightly-knit group of people.”
