Familiars of Terra
Jim Likes Familiars of Terra because it's the closest we'll ever get to the official Golden Compass RPG.
Familiars of Terra is a tabletop roleplay game set in Terra, a fantasy world in which every person has an animal familiar. As a heroic Seeker you travel the lands with your familiar healing the devastation of a war which left nations scarred and people scattered. Be a beacon of hope ushering in a new era for Terra. Help restore the land to its former beauty, bond with your familiar and discover your joined destiny, become a hero people will sing about for years to come!
If you love young adult fiction like The Golden Compass, Wild Magic, or shows like Digimon, then Familiars of Terra is for you! Mechanically we’ve taken inspiration from our favourite games like Blades in the Dark and Monsterhearts and a few card based games like Pokemon. Combining our favourite media and games with our passion for cool animals has created a unique card-based game.
In Familiars of Terra you play a Seeker, a hero who travels the continent of Tír looking for adventure and helping those in need. Seekers are rare; it’s a modern world after all, who has time for heroics? But after the Vast War, Seekers are needed more than ever.
The Badlands, large swaths of land bombed in the war, are twisted, dangerous places. Hybrids wander the blasted plains, and spirits cry out in pain. Will you heal the devastation?
After the war, the aggressor nation of Plinth closed its borders and the darkness hanging over the nation grew. Now every person in Plinth acts as one, moving in a strange dark dance, each with the name "Emilia" upon their lips. Can you unravel the mystery?
