IC: Fabula Ultima, the JRPG…
Welcome to Fabula Ultima.

This is a tabletop roleplaying game inspired by Japanese-style console RPGs, or JRPGs, such as Bravely Default, Bravely Second, Granblue Fantasy, Ni No Kuni, Octopath Traveler, Final Fantasy, and the legendary JRPG that started them all...Dragon Quest.

Just like the JRPGs it was inspired by, Fabula Ultima focuses on epic tales of growing heroes and powerful villains, set in fantastic worlds brimming with wondrous locations and bizarre, unique monsters, tightly connected to each protagonist’s unique themes and choices.

Unlike a video game, you won’t play through a pre-written plot and grind for experience by slaying monsters for countless hours or carrying out duties for quest-givers. Instead, you will build your own story together little by little, and you will be rewarded for playing your character in a way that fits their role and identity in that story.

#

If you’re interested but don’t have access to the rules, there’s a free intro packet available on DriveThruRPG called Press Start.

Would there be any interest in taking this for a spin?

To be clear, are you asking about people interested in playing the adventure contained within the linked product, or our own game?

We’d be playing the full game with our own adventures. The linked free product has a rules primer and pre-generated characters. So players would only need to be interested, not have bought the full game.

Oh ok, I didn't get it, I just thought it contained an adventure because of a misinterpretation of the line about Load Game in the description. I ended up writing my own JRPG so I'll quit buggin' ya.
