You did not leave home because you wanted to, but that's when your adventures began.

My Chivalric Bromance | Beta 1 is a game about exiled LGBT+ knights and their queer companions living as strangers in strange lands. This book includes the core rules for an old-school-style game of exiles (levels 1 through 5) wandering the world and having adventures.

Instead of ability scores, your character is defined by a tag-like system that identifies their talents, weaknesses, and class special abilities. Pick a class, answer some questions, and choose your Thirst Alignment, and you're ready to go!
