AlbionSilver Branch Games, publisher of fan favourite Jaws of the Six Serpents, is proud and not a little dazed to announce that Albion, a Celtic-themed fantasy roleplaying game set in a once and future Britain, is now available. You can get it in PDF, and in print as both softback and hardback. This is the corebook, with everything you need to play. It’s 256 pages, Letter size. Other sales channels to follow.

Albion is set in an imagined future of our own world following a period of climate change and social collapse. The Druid Order rebuilt society to its own ideals and now the land is mostly peaceful, but magic and monsters wait in the wings and factions from our world and others have designs on the future. The heroes are the ones who encounter the magic, uncover the plots and fight the monsters.

The rules use pools of six-sided dice. It’s a refinement of the system used in Legends Walk original edition and the trimmed-down Nugget freebie (also available on RPGNow and DriveThru). It’s quite traditional but with the aim of keeping the basics quick and simple while making more detailed options available for those who want them.

You can read the basics of the setting and rules in the introductory chapter, available as a preview at RPGNow/DriveThru.

You can buy this product from DriveThruRPG/RPGNow.

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar "Living" campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave's first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft). Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at dave.mcalister.org.uk and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at DnD5e.info.
