Dragon and Warrior is a tabletop role playing game, which follows a single titular protaganist, in a world based on 1980s Japanese RPG videogames. It is inspired by games like Dragon Quest , Final Fantasy, and Breath of Fire, that were foundations of the genre. In Dragon and Warrior you and your friends create the world, filling it with characters, monsters, dungeons, and most important of all, cool weapons and armor!
But Dragon and Warrior isn't just about gaining levels and gear, it is first and foremost a collaborative story-telling game, meaning that over a single 2-4 hour session, a group of you and your friends will let your imaginations and the game's rules work together to weave a story. You won't be planning or discussing it ahead of time, instead playing to find out what happens as you go.
Unlike some other tabletop games, it has no Game Master, so control over the Narrative is divided up into four roles: the Warrior, the Villain, the Ally, and Treasure. The Warrior controls the actions of the story's protagonist. The Villain creates conflicts, monsters, and characters who stand in the Warrior's way. The Ally controls the townsfolk, shopkeepers, and friends of the warrior, who aid their journey and send them on quests. Lastly, Treasure's job is to describe the world itself, breathing life into setting and scenery, as well as whatever items the Warrior finds on their journey.
Over the course of the game, players will switch roles with each other. As a result everyone will have the opportunity to play in every role, sharing in the creation of the world, the characters, and the path of the plot. The game is designed for four players, but it includes variant rules for groups of any size from two to six or more.
