Stone and Claw takes you millions of years back in time to an alternative age of dinosaurs. There, you take on the roles of Stone Age humans, surviving in a strange and hostile world using simple stone tools, the magic of unpredictable god-spirits and the strength of your community. Enter an immersive and vividly-realised world, and survive against impossible dangers as you make your mark on a world that never was.
Stone and Claw uses a simple dice system to ensure play is quick and engaging. Whenever you make a roll, you roll one dice for an attribute (Might, Grace, Resolve, Knowing, Power or Energy) and another dice for a skill. If you get 7 or more on both dice, you succeed!
Each attribute and skill is represented by a different polyhedral dice type, ranging from a d4 to a d12, which can be bolstered by Lunar Dice – slivers of divine power that allow characters to achieve incredible feats.
Stone & Claw is the first First Falling Leaf Imprint title – a range of smaller releases that showcase independent talent in well-made books. You provide a manuscript and a vision, and we work with you to bring the rest to life!
Written by paleo-enthusiast Ben Warren and illustrated by the independent artist Eli Spencer, Stone and Claw’s imprint range will open with the introductory adventure, In the Kingdom of the Driftstalker, later this summer.
