The Sword of Martin

The Sword of Martin allows players to take on the role of creature’s in Brain Jacques’s world of Redwall. It uses a versatile priority-based system that uses a roll-high d10 resolution mechanic. These two facets combine well, allowing players to truly take on whatever role they care to, from a former family man whose life was ruined by vermin to an exiled otter prince. The world of Redwall is yours.

The Sword of Martin is a pen and paper roleplaying game that has, as an understood setting, the world that Brian Jacques depicts in his world-famous Redwall series. This rulebook assumes that the reader has at least cursory knowledge of both the Redwall series and roleplaying games. To properly play this game, the players (of which there should at least be two) at least one of each of the following die: d4, d6, d8, d10, and d10

Before players begin making their characters, they should now what they aim to create. This could be as simple as “Otter warrior-wanderer” or more detailed like “former family beast displaced by band of vermin”. By knowing more about your character’s past, they can become more than a collection of numbers, but legendary and fun characters to be talked about for years to come.

    […] The Sword of Martin: A throwback to my childhood, I guess. I read all of the Redwall books as they came out until three years ago, when I became too broke to afford them and too busy to read them. Thankfully, I recently found this free game at 1km1kt.(Alas, poor Yoric, I knew him well, a fellow of infinite jest.) Fell asleep for a minute there. —-Pros: It has a whole bunch of rodents! —-Cons: Not enough rodents! More rodents NOW! Formats Avaiable: PDF Only, little to no supporting materials outside the Brian Jacques novels(If I were at my apartment, I’d count them, but I use hotspots because I can’t afford an internet connection).
