Hirelings is a game about the crew of assistants hired by the kind of so-called heroes you’d find in a game of high fantasy adventure, an examination of the abusive relationship between employers and employees when life and treasure are on the line.
Imagine being shoved forward into a dark, cavernous room with only a torch in your hand to light the way, maybe towards gruesome monsters, deadly traps, or piles of gold while armed, competent adventurers wait to see what happens next. You’ll get the idea of the life of a hireling.
One player will take on the role of the mighty Heroes, while the others play as laborers, guards, wagon drivers, and the like, hired on to help the brave adventurers face the terrors of the dungeons below the earth.
This game takes a serious look at the grim nature of being trap fodder and monster food for those more appropriately appointed for the task. A sense of gravitas is required to play.Tags: Adventure, Combat, Drama, Exploration, Fantasy, PG-13, Player antagonism, Serious
