The Kickstarter project in development, Pugmire is an interesting RPG-based fantasy tabletop game inspired both from the complementing factors of Lord of the Rings and Planet of the Apes, however founded upon sympathetic canines – pugs. Described by creator Eddy Webb, who welcomes curious ones into a world of fantasy and adventure, Pugmire was originally envisioned as a full-color, 184 page hardcover book, yet its quickly gained popularity led Webb on more intricate paths.
Made possible through Pugsteady, Onyx Path Publishing and numerous backers and pledgers, the game has all the prerequisites of an RPG-based masterpiece, set in a medieval background – the representative art, the derision and evocative language.
“Be a Good Dog. Protect Your Home. Be Loyal To Those Who Are True.These are the words of the Code of Man. Dogs have inherited the world, building the kingdom of Pugmire thousands of years after the Ages of Man. These dogs have been changed to use tools and language, and they (along with other races of uplifted animals) seek to rediscover the world they’ve inherited. Some dogs use the leftover technology of humanity, but they believe it all to be magic handed to them by their dead gods. Others seek to create an ideal civilization, using a Code of Man compiled from ancient, fragmentary lore. The world is dangerous and mysterious, but courageous and loyal dogs will persevere.
Pugmire is a light-hearted and family-friendly fantasy world. It’s one of the first of Onyx Path’s creator-owned games, produced in a partnership with Eddy Webb and Pugsteady. Combining the ideas, passion, and creative of experienced designers with decades of experience in producing quality roleplaying game products, these creator-owned games push the boundaries of the “Onyx Path brand” in new and diverse directions.”
