Description

The Burning Wheel is an award-winning fantasy roleplaying game in which players take on the roles of vibrant, dynamic characters whose very beliefs drive the story forward. Starting with a simple d6 die pool mechanic, this game intuitively builds on its core concepts, evoking a pitch and tenor in play uncommon in roleplaying games. This book details solid, dramatic systems for task resolution, advancement, trials of belief, tests of nerve, searing social conflict, dangerous sorcery, miraculous faith, and brutal, gut-wrenching martial combat. Behind the dice, player decisions drive the game's systems. The choices tangibly affect every outcome, from glorious victory to ignominious defeat. The mechanics are presented in an easy-to-read writing style, with plenty of insight and advice from the designer. If you're not careful, The Burning Wheel will change the way you play roleplaying games. Ken Hite named The Burning Wheel the Best New RPG in 2003. Reviewers have hailed it as 'excellent', 'impressive', 'innovative', and, most importantly, 'fun'. Try it, be tested and judge for yourself.
