Tequendria: Fantastical Roleplaying – Sean’s Pick, 041917

Edward John Moreton Drax Plunkett, 18th Baron of Dunsany AKA Lord Dunsany is one of the most influential figures in the history of fantastic fiction. His more than 80 books and hundreds of short stories and other works inspired almost everything that followed as “modern fantasy,” and his influence can be seen in almost every fantasy RPG we have today. Now we’ve got an entire RPG specifically designed to reflect his works and his ideas.

“Downloaded for free, read it, went back and paid in. I’ll confess to being a pinch bit skeptical but this really is a nice framework to build a Dunsanian fantasy world around. The games bleeds magic and captures a nice level of what I consider a somewhat hallucinogenic fantasy world.” – James M (DriveThruRPG customer)

Welcome to TEQUENDRIA, a world where desert cities move through the sands like a snake, where ancient gods threaten to rise from the ocean, and where legends are forged in magic and steel.

TEQUENDRIA is a fantastical roleplaying game inspired by the works of Lord Dunsany, the grandfather of modern fantasy. In this game you may become a grim Gravekeeper of Zum, a soul-weilding Icur sorceror or even an artificial Doomgaunt. Travel the wilds of Yann where the winter will bite as fiercly as the wolves, or delve in to the ancient Pits of Snood and face the demons within. Magic courses through the veins of Tequendria, meaning every creature is somewhat capable of casting spells. Above the clouds of the world adventurers can take to their aether in mighty vessels, visiting strange alien worlds like Dim Carcosa and the Snurk Pits of the Bounds of Leng. 
  • Play as 20 different weird and wonderful archetypes (roll them randomly if you like)
  • Everyone can cast spells 
  • Setting information for the world of Tequendria
  • A bestiary of deadly creatures
  • A selection of fiction by Lord Dunsany

TEQUENDRIA uses the Unbelievably Simple Roleplaying system, whose mechanics are streamlined and beginner-friendly, but allow for customisation.
