This is a beginner game.
The small town of Akakios has always known peace–but with the rise of banditry in the area, it has found itself a target for raids in recent years. Now, though, things have become more serious–a local bandit lord has gathered an army, and intends to assault Akakios and take over. If he succeeds, he will make the town his seat of power and use it to strike out into the wider region.
Fortunate, then, that you–the citizens of Akakios and the wandering adventurers who have come at just the right time–are ready, willing, and able to fight.
“Defenders of Akakios” is a simple game taking place in a generic fantasy world. Characters can be any common fantasy race (Elves, Dwarves, Humans, Half-Orcs, etc.) and/or class (Commoner, Fighter, Wizard, Thief, Wizard, etc.). The story will tend towards combat/action situations, so for ease of use I recommend making characters who are able and willing to contribute to a fight in some way.
I have set this up to be able to complete in 3-4 scenes in order to teach some elements of the Storium systems to new players.
Though this is set up to run for a shorter time than other beginner games, standard beginner game rules apply. Come in, get the knowledge you need, and then if you’d like to leave and go on to other games, go on with my blessing.
That said, if you want to stay for the full thing, I think you’ll get the most benefit that way and have fun telling a little tale about saving a town from danger.
There’s something really special about the feeling of completing a game. :-)
I will accept 8 players for this game mostly on a first-come, first-serve basis, as that’s the most I can see myself keeping track of in a single game. If you see that there are already 8 players in the application pool but would like to join the game, please message me to let me know of your interest. I will do my best to periodically start up additional versions of this game and get new players in, or to invite new players if players drop from this.
