Wealth and Treasure

In this post I want to discuss how your spend and acquire wealth in Fantasy Dice (and so also Crimson Exodus). It might not make a lot of sense to anyone who hasn’t read the rules, and most players don’t need this much of an understanding of how the wealth stat works.

Echoes of Death is a not-yet-released Fantasy Dice adventure for Crimson Exodus and it will be running in the morning slot at Dragonmeet. The adventure has already been playtested at various cons and online using Fantasy Grounds II, but this time it will be run using the also not-yet-released Turbo Dice rules which is the fast play version of Fantasy Dice.

The initial idea was to just create Fantasy Dice character sheets so people could share their characters from Crimson Exodus and other roleplaying games.

Fantasy Dice One Page Combat Primer


Following the One Page Fantasy Dice Primer a new One Page Fantasy Dice Combat Primer is now also available to download for free.

Like the one page primer, the combat primer is not an explanation or complete summary of the system, but intended to give a brief overview of the fundamentals of the combat system.

Together with the one page primer, the one page combat primer is a great cheat sheet reference during play, or as an overview for new players introduced to the Fantasy Dice system . . . → Read More: Fantasy Dice One Page Combat Primer
