Frakkin' Epic

Welcome to the pre-order page for Frakkin' Epic, the new fast-paced storytelling RPG, created by Beau M. K. Prichard and produced by Two Bards!

Conceived and birthed on a con road trip, Frakkin' Epic is the halfbreed offspring of RPGs, general nerdom, improv performance, and limited resources.

Frakkin' Epic was designed to play with nothing but a piece of paper and a smartphone or a couple of dice. This book includes all you need to know to launch your own game, including rules, tips, guided situations, and your very own starter scenario.

Frakkin' Epic isn't just a game, it's about unleashing the awesome in your players, telling a story together, and telling it in as big a way as possible.

It's simple, it's easy to learn and teach, and mostly it's about getting out of the way of your self and your players to let the most exciting, ridiculous, incredible shenanigans take place.

Through July 4th, we're running a Jumpstarter campaign, selling pre-orders of books to cover shipping and printing costs so we can bring Frakkin' Epic to some big cons this summer.

There are two options. For $10, we'll send you a PDF of Frakkin' Epic, to be delivered after the end of the month, when all pre-orders are in. For $20, you'll get a paperback version of the book (signed and numbered!), as well as the PDF, and we'll either deliver it in person at a con, or we'll pay the shipping!

If you want to give us more money, there are no bonus gifts from us, you'll just have to buy more books!

If we sell 100 books before the end of June, we will release a recording of a special celebrity game of Frakkin' Epic, GM'd by Beau, to feature the Two Bards themselves, Jesse Lee Keeter, and at least one other nerdy star!

If we sell 200 books before the end of June, purchasers will receive a free Kindle version or PDF copy of one of Beau's novels!

If we sell 300 books, Two Bards will produce a series of short videos explaining Frakkin' Epic's mechanics.

If we sell 500 books, Two Bards will film an extensive video instructional walkthrough series on how to play Frakkin' Epic.

We are using PayPal as the point of sale merchant for this, so you can pay with a PayPal account, or creditcard. Super fast and easy, one button click, and you are on your way!

Where am I? Who are you people? What the hell is this?

This is the page for Two Bards Productions, a Seattle-based indie media production company. We do a regular podcast, shoot a lot of videos, and have just started a pre-order for Frakkin' Epic, a really awesome, stripped-down role playing game system.

Who's this Beau guy?

Many geeks known of Beau M. K. Prichard for his behind-the-scenes involvement in Zombie Orpheus Entertainment series like JourneyQuest and Rude Mechanical. He's also a producer on the super nerdy web series Glitch. Beau also writes books, several of which are available on Amazon. On the way back from the Fandemonium con in Idaho, Jesse Lee Keeter (star of Glitch and JourneyQuest) asked if there was a way to play D&D in the backseat. Beau came up with what eventually developed into Frakkin' Epic, the simple, fast-paced, perfect-for-roadtrips, RPG system.

Where can I buy the book in person?

The book will be for sale at the Zombie Orpheus Entertainment booth at a number of cons this summer. Aside from the occasionally very discerning game store, the only place you will consistently be able to order the book is here online.

What's the big deal?

This is the first truly public project other than the podcast that Two Bards Productions have put their creative muscle behind. That's a big deal. This is, really seriously truly, a new RPG system that you can buy for as little as $10. This is a game that rewards creativity, encourages shenanigans, and makes table top gaming, fast, accessible, and fun for practically everyone.
