Another trip back today as I spotlight a very cool, Ennie Award winning game from Basic Action Games called Honor + Intrigue. Based on an updated version of Simon Washbourne’s Barbarians of Lemuria.
Inspired as much by Hollywood as by history, Honor + Intrigue pays homage to the swashbucklers of the silver screen as well as great works such as those of Dumas and Sabatini. Game Masters should feel free to use history as a source of inspiration, not a restriction. True to its inspiration, Honor + Intrigue plays fast and cinematic, leaving the focus on drama and action unfolding.
