Untouched woodlands filled with magical creatures... frontier towns and villages... dark, haunted forests and ancient ruins with secrets to discover... palace intrigue and secret agendas of political and religious leaders alike... bustling cities... high seas pirates... and more!

Cartyrion has a place for any high fantasy game style and is compatible with any rule set, but here, you will also find the Laurels & Loot Fantasy RPG Rules, an old-school inspired system that's light on mechanics, fast to learn, and focused on opportunities to let player characters do spectacular things in search of fame and fortune.

Cartyrion Character Guide
Almost a hundred player races, both purebred and hybrid;
numerous cultures and professions, and all the popular classes
-- all customized for the World of Cartyrion.

Adventures in the Feywood
A campaign-style series of adventures for characters of level one through five,
set in the Feywood region of the world.
The region features vast unexplored forests and fens, quaint villages,
and even a small city to adventure in.

This is a work in progress.
The World of Cartyrion is vast, and there is much to do. At present, the gods, the people, the history, and the culture are painted only in the broadest of brush strokes, but the details are being filled in all the time.

There are two immediate projects underway.

The first is a series of adventures - a campaign, if you will - that are designed to introduce the players to the unique features of Cartyrion. These adventures are set in a portion of the world that some call the Frontier, but most simply call the Feywood. As these adventures are being designed, the details of the world are being filled in for this particular region.

The second is a work providing the detailed descriptions of all of the playable races and their sub-cultures, the backgrounds a player character might have had, and the adventuring classes that they will adopt as they journey through the world seeking their fortune.
n addition to the Player Character Creation Guide, there will be a complete Rules Compendium available under Open Gaming License. This rules compendium will be quite familiar to players of the two predominant TTRPG systems around today. It will attempt to streamline some complex rule subsets, fill in a few blanks, and add a number of additional features that are designed for the World of Cartyrion.

It will also feature extensive guidance for Game Masters and Players of all skill levels from neophyte to grognard.

fter that, a complete Guide to the Deities and Cosmology of Cartyrion will be completed, as well as a complete World Atlas.
eyond these immediate goals, there are several other potential projects on the drawing board:
  • A series centered in the Kingdoms - lands that consider themselves civilized, but are rife with intrigue, subterfuge, and conflict.
  • A campaign series focusing on the seafaring races of Cartyrion. Adventure on the high seas with entirely new subcultures of existing player races.
  • A series focusing on exploration of the "lost civilizations" of Cartyrion. The great god-war years ago caused great cities to fall, but civilizations rose and fell earlier as well. What secrets lie buried in their ruins?
And there's plenty of room for more.
