In this game, you play as Welsh bards who travel to the Eisteddfod festival to attend a bardic contest. I love the incorporation of Welsh folklore into the game, and I like the fact the three stats are Song, Music and Story, which is very fitting to the characters. The game uses a clever dice mechanic that borrows from poker hands. This is a great game for anyone who loves bards and/or Welsh folklore!
Eisteddfod: A Game of Bardic Luck and Skill
A downloadable game
Eisteddfod is a short-form, collaborative and competitive RPG for one GM (the Archdruid) and one or more players. You play a Welsh Bard trying their luck at the Eisteddfod, a gathering of poets, musicians and storytellers celebrating the best of the arts. Make the potentially dangerous journey to the Maes (field) where the Eisteddfod is being held, braving both the threats in the wild along with the cunning and guile of men. Perform well before the assembled Gorsedd and be recognized as Wales’ greatest poet!
