From publisher blurb:
Are you thirsty for more action, drama, and suspense? What about courtly intrigue and and political maneuvering? This and more can be found in the all-new role-playing game Sword & Musket brought to you by the creator of STAKE. In Sword & Musket, you play as a cavalier, rifleman, or bucaneer and aid Queen Elizabeth in maintaining peace between Tudor England and her European neighbors in the final decades of the 16th century. Uncover assassination plots, hunt down thieves and outlaws, plunder remote islands, and partake in merriment around a campfire or at the local inn with a a merry company of cutthroats, poets, painters, and princes!
The game has a unique dice system (using d4s-d12s) to resolve most tasks. It also features lightning fast tactical combat, incorporating both square and hex grids to simulate hand-to-hand and ship-to-ship skirmishes. Three modes of play are available to players including: Guided, with one player as a GM. GM-less, using random story prompts and encounters. And a Skirmish mode, with player vs. player battling it out.
