Zoom in, zoom out. Play as a character, then play as a faction, making decisions that could affect the whole map. That's the idea behind Faction Turn, a 3-page rules-light PbtA game that provides simple mechanics and procedures for playing a sweeping, epic campaign.

What it contains:

- the Risky Move, a single move for when you're playing as a character

- two moves for when you're playing as a faction, one for faction versus faction and one for general play.

- capitalized words like Treaty, Resources, Threats, and Time Skips

- no advice for running the game because that's the fun of rules-light games!

For those who know Legacy 2e: Life Among The Ruins or Free From The Yoke:

I am a big fan of Legacy 2e and it's sibling games. But I find them very unwieldy as texts and in play so as I mentioned on my newsletter many moons ago, I decided to make a standalone retroclone (just rolls off the tongue, doesn't it). In the same way that World of Dungeons was a tongue-in-cheek retroclone of Dungeon World, this game - Faction Turn - is a retroclone of Legacy 2e. It's also stripped of most specific genre trappings so you could use it to play fantasy, scifi, whatever!

This is pretty great.


I *love* Free From The Yolk and it’s staggered character and faction level play. 

Faction Turn is a really solid and juicy distillation if that style of play. 

Absolute love at first sight! Top of my list of pick up and play games now.
