RUNE Quick Start Edition
A downloadable TTRPG playtest
**The complete game is now available!**
You are an Engraved. Cursed to wander the shattered world of Obron, you seek the power to take back control of your fate. Explore Realms, kill Rune Lords, and carve the power of runes into your very being.
What Is RUNE?
RUNE is a solo tabletop RPG being developed by Spencer Campbell of Gila RPGs. It is heavily inspired by the Soulsborne genre of video games, including Dark Souls, Bloodborne, and Elden Ring.
In RUNE, you are a wanderer of the lands of Obron. The world is dangerous, but full of power if you are willing to reach out and take it.
RUNE combines narrative exploration with tactical combat to capture the environmental storytelling and high stakes combat you love in soulslike games.
This is the quick start version of the game. RUNE is still in development, and this quick start will give you a taste of the full game to come!
This quick start version comes with:
- Rules: Straightforward rulebook that covers the rules necessary to try the quick start Realm.
- Grim Coast Realm: A fully developed Realm for you to explore, with a Rune Lord for you to seek out and slay. Take what you learned from the rules and put them into action!
- Resources: Character and Realm reference sheets to track your playthrough.
Please keep in mind that these are WIP documents, and do not represent the final layout and rules of the game.
