Out Past the Treeline
“Out Past the Treeline” is the working title of my Small Tribes campaign. The game is based on the HeroQuest (Glorantha) rule system, with numerous modifications.
Players play bug-sized humanoids (bugkin) from tribal cultures which are tied to insect species. It is assumed that every existing, real-world insect specie has a corresponding bugkin tribe, though some are better suited for characters in a RPG.
Here are pages for the a few sample tribes. More will come soon.
Here are a couple of links to interesting insect descriptions on wikipedia. There’s a lot to work with in these species.
And here’s a link to the HeroQuest Roleplaying in Glorantha rulebook.
Here’s an image gallery for some inspiration.
