Adventurer is a dirty word. You`re a scoundrel, a villain, a wastrel, a vagabond, a criminal, a sword-for-hire, a cutthroat. Respectable people belong to guilds, the church, or are born into nobility. Or barring all that, they`re salt of the earth and till the land for the rest of us. Your problem is that you`re none of that. Based on the award-winning Mouse Guard Roleplaying Game, Torchbearer is a riff on the early model of fantasy roleplaying games. In it, players take on the role of fortune-seeking adventurers, delving into forlorn ruins, braving terrible monsters, and retrieving forgotten treasures.
