Okay, this is somewhat out of left field for everyone but there is no way I could skip past this madness. For those in the US the name Wendy's will be well known, outside of the States it doesn't have much of a brand that I'm aware of, but their latest advertising campaign is right up our collective strasse.

Queen Wendy

A Wendy's Roleplaying Game

Yes, you heard me. Wendy's have decided that a great ad campaign would be a Fast Food-themed RPG, and make no mistake this hasn't been written on the back of placemat.

The nation of Freshtovia has been the lone beacon of hope in the land of Beef’s Keep for decades. However, the Ice Jester and his rogues gallery of frozen fiends threaten Queen Wendy’s reign of prosperity. Prepare your heroes for adventure.

The RPG in question, Feast of Legends, is a 90 page, full colour book, that is available as  a free download The first 20 pages is a character generation, quick start guide and rule book. The character sheets can also be downloaded separately.

It looks like it is based on the d20 OSR license, and as far as a game system goes it's a very simple one to pick up for novices, in fact, it looks like they have skewed the numbers slightly to give your burger adventurers an edge over the competition 😉

The remaining 60 or so pages is actually a 5 chapter campaign to deal with the Ice Jester in the kingdom south of Freshtovia. The book is full of maps from Collin Fogel such as this glorious map of the realms.

There are character illustrations by Alex Lopez throughout the book showing, heroes, villians, and little feature pieces, and I think everyone has to agree that Wendy's have produced one of the most lavish pieces of free marketing I've seen fullstop.

The game itself is full of cheesy dad jokes and fast food references all the way through, it's both a homage and pastiche of take away food, but despite, or perhaps because of this, Feast of Legends is actually a really fun introduction to roleplaying and well worth checking out for the queenly sum of nothing at all.

Enter the realm of Beef ’s Keep, a place filled with
treasure, adventure and the occasional dad joke.
Battle your way through frozen foes and explore
dangerous dungeons. If you are up to the task, glory
awaits. Grab a hamburger and get ready to level up.

Queen Wendy needs you will you answer the call? Now serving order number 163, number 163? Anyone? 163?
