Adventures in the time of Robin Hood for 5E!
I often think of two semi-historical medieval settings/stories that fit well into fantasy RPGs. King Arthur/Pendragon (which has been well adapted by Chaosium) and Robin Hood. Both seem to fit well with either no magic or low magic versions of the settings to my eye.
Sherwood: The Legend of Robin Hood 5E is from Battlefield Press, a company recently inherited by Adam Thompson upon the passing of his brother, Johnathan. I've known Adam for a number of years and he has been making an impressive effort to continue the legacy of his brother.
Here's a little tidbit that I wish other crowdfunded projects would offer - the opportunity to back for other systems:
Backer Perk - This perk allows you to back our project but only to get the Sherwood the Legend of Robin Hood in Swords and Wizardry, Pathfinder 1e, or Savage Worlds Adventurer’s Edition. (2 bucks)
I'm jumping in for the Swords & Wizardry version. Savage Worlds is tempting, but I'd never get to play it.
Heads up, Indiegogo is adding a tip to the cost of backing. You can set the tip to ZERO manually, which I did.
Sherwood can be played in either historic or mythical mode. Historic mode is more realistic, leaving out magic. In in mythical mode magic has been added to the setting allowing you to play in the fantastic. Both are fully supported with campaign notes, foes, and unique rules.In addition to this we have a special type of Action Points called Swashbuckling Points. What these do is allow your character to do the impossible, from swinging on a rope chandelier to climbing up the wall using only a knife. In a style that emulates the early fantastical stories of the genre.
