You and your (2-4) friends are starting a new fantasy roleplay campaign or oneshot. Your character is a badass elf* with pages of deep, edgy, tragic lore. You didn't make a healer, nor did any of your friends. 

*You don't have to be an elf. Any sort of fantastical person is fine as long as they are sick as fuck.

One of you is the Dungeon Keeper. You have pages of lore about your hardcore original setting and haven’t read any of your players’ novellas. Or perhaps you suddenly had a sick idea for a character and don’t want to run the game now. This is fine, you’ll all figure it out together.


In Elf With A 10 Page Backstory you play as mysterious adventurers who slowly reveal the secrets of their dark past to help them overcome challenges while simultaneously shoehorning their lore into the Dungeon Keeper's narrative and building off the lore of their companions.  It is a lighthearted satyrical love letter to edgelord gamers and to the imaginations of our younger selves.

Despite the name, Elf With A 10 Page Backstory requires no preparation and takes little time to learn.

This game is likely to remain free but consider how fuckin badass it is to support a creator.

Finally played this and it was absolutely hilarious. My immortal edgelord "Luxvi," also known as LXVIII, had a great time killing himself repeatedly to deal with his enemies. 10/10 would recommend

This was silly and so much fun!! Only took about 2 hours start to finish with 3 players.

Update: Played another session of EWATPB, on Twitch this time!
