Ancient Adventures

There are countless fantasy games and novels out there. But what do they have in common? Most are inspired by European culture. We decided it's time to do something new. Waracle was born.

About

What?

A tabletop storytelling-based roleplaying game, Waracle is all about creating and playing a story together, with unique characters in epic quests against deadly foes and beasts.

Why?

Inspired by Stone through Iron Age technology, Waracle has global roots: Mesoamerica, Mesopotamia, India, Vietnam, Precolumbian North America, and more.

How?

Waracle uses a d10-based ruleset called Classless. Classless is a skill-based system that is quick to learn, but offers plenty of customization for both RPG newbies and vets.

Where?

After two years developing the lore and a year designing mechanics, and a year in Alpha testing, Waracle is currently in Public Beta. Sign up for the Beta!

Waracle's team started when Briana approached her former college roommate and good friend Emily - and Emily's best friend, Zookie - about creating a new fantasy setting. Inspired by the concept of Atlantis - a super-advanced ancient civilization that fell to ruin, the trio spent the next few years utilizing their respective geek skills to craft the world of Waracle. In 2014, the team added another old friend of Emily's, Bryan, to develop the mechanics of the game's system. Andy is Briana's husband and has been around from the start, wearing whatever hat needs to be worn at the moment.
