Welcome to the East Mark, young adventurer. I know it was not easy to get here but just consider the rewards: the wondrous treasures, the power and the glory that await you.
It will not be easy to achieve all of this; indeed nothing is easy in the East Mark. You will have to work your way with your sword and your cunning.
Ha! I knew you would like that. Here, take this map and the instructions so you can survive a world full of adventures.
Be prepared to meet legendary characters and battle horrible monsters in dark dungeons or impregnable fortresses. I hope you have what's need to survive. And no, I am not referring to your weapons or your faithful companions, although they will certainly be necessary. I was referring to something more important, something essential: your imagination!
Adventures in the East Mark Basic Rule Set (aka the Red Box) is a gloriously illustrated retro fantasy roleplaying game. It is the ultimate expression of the OSR movement that’s inspired by early roleplaying games. This is an English translation of a popular Spanish game designed by Pedro Gil and his own gaming group. All of the original Spanish artist works are included, presented for the first time in full color.
