Burning Wheel is an award-winning fantasy roleplaying game in which players take on the roles of vibrant, dynamic characters whose very beliefs propel the story forward.
Burning Wheel is presented in an easy-to-read writing style, with plenty of insight and advice from the designer. Starting with a simple D6 dice pool mechanic, this game intuitively builds on its core concepts.
Your choices tangibly affect every outcome—from glorious victory to ignominious defeat. But there are consequences to every decision, ramifications to every action. The choices you make close off one path, while opening another.
This philosophy underpins the character creation system for Burning Wheel. As soon as a player decides to make a character in Burning Wheel, she is confronted with decisions about the character’s past, ethics, beliefs, scars, goals and dreams. Questions whose answers affect not only the player’s character, but the shape of the story as a whole.
