when I first heard about this game I instantly knew I HAD to play it, not only is Thomas' art just amazing but the concept is great! so, when a few weeks later Thomas gave me a copy so I could review it for him, I was ecstatic! I really wanted to play this with my local group, but scheduling sucks and we haven't had a chance yet, (soon, though, soon!) so I decided to do a run through on my discord server instead, and OMG we had such a blast!
This really is a no prep game, just give the main rules a read over, hand out the character sheets and rules references and you are ready to go, everything is pretty self explanatory. Game play is similar to Baron Munchhausen where players tell convoluted and extravagant stories of past and present exploits, but RH has the Dunarch to give prompts and obstacles and adds dice for extra spice and desperation. We ended up with wonderful stories of disaster and miraculous success told by nearly inept hirelings as they bumbled their way through the dungeon. The hardest part I found at first as the Dunarch was coming up with weird and exciting challenges that didn't rely on combat. But the once everyone got into it and the players descriptions got more and more interesting and hilarious, everything just flowed perfectly.
Our game involved a lowly farmer creeping along the floor with a barrel over his head pretending to be a worm to escape sentient statues, a torchbearer seducing a red dragon, a fool giving a lecture on the merits of a potato stuck on a stick as a form of art criticism as so much more. It was one the most hilarious games I've played in a while. You should all totally go get yourself a copy, and play the heck out of it.
