Root: The Pellenicky Glade Quickstart

Root: The Pellenicky Glade Quickstart


War has returned to the Woodland. 

The Marquise de Cat led her armies to victory over many of the clearings, but the Eyrie Dynasty rises again to oppose her. And the mice, rabbits, and foxes of the Woodland do not sit idly by—the Woodland Allicance emerges, a homegrown rebellion to free the Woodland from any oppressors. 

In the midst of this war, you and your friends—vagabonds all—travel between the clearings. You take on the jobs that no one else will or can do. You choose whom you serve, if anyone... and you may tip the balance of the war. 

Root: The Tabletop Roleplaying Game is based on the award-winning Root: A Game of Woodland Might & Right board game. In Root: The TTRPG, you play vagabonds, going on adventures and changing the Woodland with your actions. This booklet is a sampling of the core rules of Root: The TTRPG, created for Free RPG Day. It has all the necessary instructions for how to play, as well as an entire prewritten clearing that will give you a strong starting situation for one or two sessions of play. This includes:

  • Basic moves and rules to play
  • Six pregenerated characters
  • Important NPCs, locations, and conflicts
  • Special weapon moves for combat
  • Map and clearing generation systems
  • A faction system to represent the war

Hi Chad,
We're working to deliver the book next year but are holding off on announcing a specific date until we can be certain.

love the project. Could you make a printer-friendly version? I just really like to read stuff printed out.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
