    About the adventure

    Join us in embarking on a fantastical adventure to exercise your creativity and have an immense amount of fun! Gameplay is extremely simple and intuitive - easy to learn while allowing for a deep level of mastery. A quest is issued, and each hero in turn embarks on a grand adventure to complete it! The adventure is revealed over the course of 5 Acts. On your turn you must describe how you approach the challenge that each Act presents, earning a bonus to your roll should your narration be epic, beautiful, plausible, and fitting for your hero's abilities. You earn Glory Points for each Act you complete, securing ultimate victory for completing the 5th Act. Should no hero prove capable of finishing the 5th Act, then it is clearly a task fit only for the gods. But fear not, for you still return with tales of your exploits and will be declared the greatest hero should you have the most Glory Points. Along the way, you may Help or Hinder the other heroes' endeavors, sharing in their Glory or preventing them from attaining heights as high as yours. Whether you prove to be successful in becoming the most Glorious Hero or not, you are promised to share in a great amount of hilarity, become immersed in an unforgettable story, and have an immense amount of fun. More game details below. Please send any questions to us at! Highest Production Quality We provide all licensing needed for Fantasy Grounds virtual tabletop and Zoom. The game will feature high quality, custom maps with dynamic lighting effects. Immersive ambient music is provided through Syrinscape Online.

Improve Your Storytelling Skills Every game of Glory is completely unique and created spontaneously with player involvement! Glory is the perfect game for Game Masters looking to improve their narration skills and players wanting to better bring their characters to life! Fun for Role Players and Strategists Glory rewards both players who love strategy and the thrill of random chance. Success in Glory is ultimately decided by the roll of a die, but strategic players can enlist the help of others, create alliances, pit competitors against each other, and sabotage others to secure their victory. You may fail spectacularly at your own adventure, yet still attain the most Glory Points by opportunistically Helping and tactfully Hindering others.

    Gameplay details

    Gameplay in Glory is engaging and exciting. Players and the Game Master will make heavy use of improv and storytelling to create a fantastical narrative. The game's theme is one of mythic heroics inspired by literary classics, epics, and sagas. You will face off against larger than life obstacles requiring inspiring feats to overcome them. Some challenges will be to defeat monstrosities, but others will require mental or spiritual efforts to succeed. As such the content will tend to focus on those sorts of topics covered in historical literature. There will be exaggerated description and narrative, but it is very unlikely to become grotesque or obscene in proportion. Anyone may stop play at any time if they are uncomfortable with a situation, which can be discussed or simply moved on from no questions asked. One can also step away from the game at any time, and we will take a short break every 1.5 to 2 hours.
