Beowulf: Age of Heroes RPG Setting Guide Up On Kickstarter

Many of you have read Beowulf or seen one of the many movie adaptations of the epic tale. At the very least, you've probably heard of it and associate it with times of great heroes of legend. Well, soon, you'll be able to join said heroes on their adventures as Beowulf: Age of Heroes is a setting guide for 5th edition that will take you to that mythical time. The book is up on Kickstarter now.

From the campaign:

One of the oldest recorded stories in Western Europe, Beowulf is an epic tale of hero against monster. And the monster’s mother. And then a dragon.

BEOWULF: Age of Heroes is a setting and rules set for 5th Edition, designed primarily for duet play – one GM and one player.

BEOWULF presents a host of new and specially adapted rules to create epic and thematic adventures for your lone hero and his or her companions. Explore a mythic migration-era Europe and beyond, solve mysteries, and do battle with dreadful monsters!

With writing and rules design from hand-picked 5e and folklore geniuses, and with art from Jon Hodgson and friends, BEOWULF will be a thing of epic wonder.

The campaign's at more than 3x its funding goal but only has a week left to go.
