Rules-light, Roleplaying Fun

Land of Eem RPG is easy to get started and can be as simple or crunchy as you choose. The game emphasizes player creativity and collaborative storytelling, with character abilities that allow players to invent and shape the world around them.

Land of Eem RPG is more about roleplaying, teamwork, exploration, and finding lost treasures, than it is about always fighting monsters--though that's definitely part of the game!

"The system is really easy, rules-light, and you can have a lot of fun with it."

Creatures and Critters Galore

Land of Eem RPG is chock of full of original and classic fantasy creatures, each with an unusual spin on traditional tropes. The bestiary in the core rulebook contains over 100 creatures and critters, all illustrated in full color!

Not only that, but the Mucklands Realm sandbox setting is home to dozens of NPC factions and unique adversaries-- enough content to last a GM for years.

Inspired by a rich, expansive world.

Land of Eem RPG is inspired by the fantasy graphic novel series, Rickety Stitch and the Gelatinous Goo. But you don’t need to read the books to play! In fact, the Mucklands Realm sandbox setting is almost entirely system-neutral, so GMs can use it with any RPG system.

Gigantic, Hex Crawl Map to Explore

Packed with tons of random tables, the game also includes a beautifully illustrated map with hundreds of locations, NPCs, quest hooks, and rumors for players GMs and players to run a long-lasting, diverse campaign.

Hijinks, Heroics, or Peril...You Decide

Land of Eem is a world that’s both wacky and wondrous. Embark on adventures that are as silly or as serious as your group prefers! All adventures and quests in the sandbox setting are categorized by three different tones:

  • Hijinks (Think The Muppets or Labyrinth)
  • Derring-Do (Think The Lord of the Rings or The Hobbit)
  • Doom & Gloom (Think Conan the Barbarian or Mad Max).

However you’d like to play, Land of Eem supports it with content!

"[Land of Eem] is so nice and refreshing!"
