Revolt! is a GM-less fantasy TTRPG for 2 to 4 rebellious citizens, or one gallant knight and it's coming to Kickstarter on May 29.

Play to tell tales in the realm of Lektok, where Mortimus the Toad King has claimed the throne after a bloody civil war. The citizens are struggling under his harsh decree and there are rumours of unrest...

In Revolt! each player takes on the role of a unique faction—a group of like-minded citizens, united by their faction leader and a shared creed.

To overthrow the monarch, players must travel the realm, gathering support at the towns, landmarks and environments where other citizens live and work.

You'll draw cards and answer questions, describing the sites and citizens you encounter and how your faction wins support or suffers a setback. 

At the end of the game, the faction with the most support claims the throne for their leader and announces a new decree. The others must discover their fate by answering epilogue questions, based on their score.

But Lektok has been changed forever and a new revolt is never far away...
