There’s a new Disney and Pixar movie out there called Onward that takes place in a modern-fantasy setting. That is to say that it’s fantasy characters, but a modern world. And in said world, there’s an RPG that the characters play. Well, soon, you’ll be able to play as well as The OP Games has announced Quests of Yore: Barley’s Edition, a new fantasy RPG based on the one seen in Onward.
From the post:
Usaopoly (The Op), a leading tabletop games publisher, is teaming up with Disney and Pixar, creators of Onward, to allow fans to bring home a real-life piece of the story with Quests of Yore: Barley’s Edition, a unique role-playing experience inspired by the game seen in the movie.
Onward is set in a modern suburban fantasy world and tells the story of two teenage elf brothers, Ian and Barley Lightfoot, on a quest to conjure enough magic to spend 24 hours with their late father. On their journey, the brothers encounter treacherous obstacles and must deploy magical tactics culled from Quests of Yore, Barley’s favorite role-playing board game. The magical story of Onward was inspired by Pixar movie director Dan Scanlon’s real-life experience of his own father.
Together, The Op and Disney and Pixar are thrilled to make Ian and Barley’s game a reality for fans of Onward and role-playing games (RPGs). Quests of Yore: Barley’s Edition will deliver an imaginative and immersive fantasy gameplay experience, where the “Quest Master” unfolds the story narrative while players develop, enrich and actualize their characters along their journey.
