Burden Bluggerbuckle is a bereaved orc on a mission. Angry and bitter, he's sourced an ancient and terrifying magical artefact, and he's using his new-found magical ability to rampage through defenceless towns and villages. From little gnomes to giant trolls, the citizens of the Plains need a ragtag group of heroes to save them.
That's where you and your fearless team step in. Acting as your characters, you embark on a quest across the Plains to stop Burden from destroying the world, facing danger and challenge at every turn.
You'll meet an ensemble cast of wacky characters, including belligerent goblins, dishevelled wizards, orcs who just want to be loved, and trolls with a dangerous fascination for obstacle courses. Some of them need help. Some of them want to kill you.
And it's not just enemy characters that threaten your safety, the environment of the Plains is also a harsh and unforgiving place. Goblin minefields, broken bridges, and massive cliffs all need to be conquered on your march to victory.
You're in complete control over how you solve challenges. Guided by a very simple set of dice rules, you work with your team to propose ideas and roll dice to see if they work. But watch out, roll an epic fail and things can go hilariously wrong.
Over the course of the game, you can improve your character by earning coin, increasing its level, and buying weapons, shields, armour, and magical items. But watch out, your character can be killed, so make sure you keep your wits about you.

Review for The Party RPG
Hours of entertainment
I was never a fan of rpg until now! Witty, imaginative and hours of fun!
A newbie and total convert to RPG!
Played remotely with the family over lockdown after a recommendation. It was a right good laugh, really enjoyed.
Hours of fun!
A brilliantly witty, super fun, easy to grasp adventure. We played as a large group and had an amazing evening! The inventive storyline and unusual characters drew in even the less-nerdy members of our group. Would thoroughly recommend and cannot wait to play again over Christmas!
Great Fun with Friends over Zoom
Really Great Fun, played it with a mix of people who have never played role playing games and some that are seasoned pros. It was awesome. Also really great to do virtually as well, meet up and have fun with friends without it having to be ANOTHER ZOOM QUIZ!
