Sellswords & Spellslingers Solo & Cooperative Fantasy Miniature Rules

Watermarked PDF – $8.00 USD

Sellswords and Spellslingers is a solo and cooperative fantasy miniatures game for 1 to 6 players.

Each player creates a party of fantasy adventurers with a point system. Then players choose a scenario and try to complete a mission. Foes and events are moved automatically by a deck of cards. Characters grow with experience, and a list of campaign activities is provided.

The game requires printing a deck of cards.

The Download Includes:

  • Full-color PDF rulebook (68 pages)
  • 30 Monster cards
  • 23 event cards
  • 16 spell cards
  • Eight potion cards
  • Hundreds of counters for those wishing to play without miniatures

The game will be supported by frequent releases of scenarios and mini-campaigns. A paperback version will be available. Cards will be available as print on demand, professionally printed cards on Drivethrucards.com.

Required to Play:

Paper and pencil, at least three 20-sided dice, a couple of six-sided dice, 1 to 6 figures per player, plenty of miniatures for opponents (each scenario requires 1 to 2 boss type monsters and 3 to 8 minion type monsters per player), a play area (game mat or table) of 36" x 36", measure in inches (tape measure).

The game is non-scale specific – you can play with any scale or brand of miniatures.

Features of the Game:

  • Open source point system to create your heroes the way you want them, including giving them disadvantageous traits.
  • Cooperative play – all players against the game instead of player vs. player.
  • Solo play – no opponents needed, you can run a party and the event cards will activate the monsters.
  • Activation system (not IGOUGO) that creates fog of war and uncertainty.
  • All monsters stats summarized on handy cards.
  • Campaign activities – Your characters grow and do things other than just fighting monsters.
  • RPG Lite – with creative players and the right attitude, it is possible to use Sellswords as a rules-light, GM-less RPG.
  • All the rules use the same mechanism – roll a difficulty number on d20 for an action to succeed, with modifier for your characters' traits.
  • Only player-characters roll dice. When it's the monster's turn to attack, PCs roll dice to defend.
