Free League Publishing Tabletop RPG Portfolio 2019 - Become an adventurer

To be frank, it’s about time you start thinking about how to fulfill your New Year's resolutions. Remember when you promised to have more fun in your everyday life and become a more adventurous person? Wait, you don’t remember? Ok, let me remind you!

  • You promised that you would hang out more with your friends, sit down and have a cozy time.
  • You promised to take long walks in lush forests to into shape for fights with monsters, raiders, mutants, robots and the likes.
  • You promised to  meet new people, anything from the kids in school to the bearded strangers offering you mead at the inn, say hi to the dwarves in the mountain and the mutants in the Zone and… Well, just be a bit more open-minded to the random encounter.
  • You promised to visit new and exciting place, like The Loop below the pastoral countryside of Mälaröarna, take a tour in the post-apocalyptic Ark, travel to the Forbidden Lands that used to be covered by the Blood Mist, travel into space and visit the Coriolis space station, and then go back to the 80’s and 90’s that never was.

So what kind of friend would I be if I didn’t help you fulfill your New Year’s resolutions?
Big hug, you can do it! I believe in you.
