“Dogs and cats living together…”
Sorry, couldn’t resist. Seriously, Pugmire is sweet, wonderful, full of great storytelling and uplifting ideas, and a genuinely great entry point for any younger gamer to immerse in the joys of fantasy adventure and shared storytelling. Truly a pet project of my friend and colleague, Eddy Webb, not only does this game stand as a beautiful memorial to the beloved Murraypug, but it’s just a great game for all ages.
Be a Good Dog!
“Be a good dog. Protect your home. Be loyal to those who are true. These are the words of the Code of Man.”
— Sister Picassa Collie, Shepherd of the Church of Man
Dogs have inherited the world, building the kingdom of Pugmire untold centuries after the Ages of Man are over. These dogs have been uplifted to use tools and language, and they seek to rediscover the ruins of the Old Ones. Some have learned to use the leftover technology of humanity, but they believe it to be magic handed to them by their lost gods. Others seek to create an ideal civilization, using a Code of Man compiled from ancient, fragmentary lore left behind by humanity. The world is dangerous and mysterious, but good dogs will persevere.
Some highlights of Pugmire include:
- An evocative and mysterious setting that’s both family friendly and deep enough to create compelling stories.
- A traditional fantasy rules system redesigned for streamlined play and easy creation of heroic dogs, with an emphasis on cooperation and action over competition and violence.
- A variety of callings and breeds that give access to several fun and interesting tricks.
- Rival species to interact with, like cats and badgers, along with terrifying and dangerous monsters that roam the landscape.
Will you be a good dog?
