Ahoy, mateys! In the realm of tabletop role-playing games, a new star has risen on the horizon, and it’s a briny, gritty, and downright thrilling one. Called PIRATE BORG, this role-playing game (RPG) is a treasure trove of adventure, intrigue, and good old-fashioned pirate chicanery.
Created by Luke Stratton, a.k.a. Limithron, PIRATE BORG allows players to fully embrace their inner buccaneer. The game’s tagline perfectly encapsulates its spirit: “No prey, no pay.” It’s all about getting your hands dirty, living on the edge, and plundering to your heart’s content.
The world of PIRATE BORG is a place where scoundrels thrive and fortune favors the bold. Find a ship, recruit a motley crew, and set sail for the high seas. From raiding and pillaging to upgrading your ship, fleeing from terrifying sea creatures, and hunting for hidden treasure, this game offers a bounty of opportunities for high-stakes escapades.
One of the exciting aspects of PIRATE BORG is the strategic depth it offers. Beyond the usual RPG character building and adventuring, there’s a strong emphasis on ship-based combat and upgrades, making the naval aspect just as critical as your ground activities.
The game comes in a 166-page book that includes eight character classes, easy-to-learn naval combat rules, stats for 18 vessels, 80+ NPCs & monsters, and 90+ system agnostic tables. It also includes The Curse of Skeleton Point, a sandbox-style adventure teeming with pirate-themed locations. Each page is brimming with the love and attention to detail that Stratton is renowned for, making the book a gem in its own right.
Luke Stratton, known to many as Limithron, is a creator with an enduring fascination for the Golden Age of Piracy. His journey into the world of RPGs was born out of a need to pivot his career during the pandemic. Starting with creating pirate ship battle maps on Patreon, his passion and creativity quickly garnered a strong following. Now, he is the proud author and illustrator of PIRATE BORG and Limithron’s Guide to Naval Combat for 5th Edition.
PIRATE BORG is a testament to Stratton’s dedication to his craft and his love for the pirate genre. It’s an immersive RPG experience that promises countless hours of excitement, danger, and, of course, treasure hunting. So, load your cannons, hoist the Jolly Roger, and set sail into the world of PIRATE BORG.
