But on my terms.
For Christmas, among the Pokémon cards and Pikachu dolls, was a copy of Basic Fantasy Role-Playing Game, and a set of dice from me.
I decided to make this gift a little more attractive, by tying it in to his new obsession. I decided to build a campaign world that mixed Pokémon, Fantasy Role-Playing, and a bit of Celtic Mythology. Into a new campaign setting.
In Feycatchers, Faerie animals have escaped from Arcadia and spread across the island of Hebron. The Wizard responsible for the invasion formed an order of young magicians who can trap these fae creatures in magic lanterns, to by en either conjure them or use their magic from within the lantern.
These Feycatchers have been made answerable to an order of white wizards, the local holy church, and the Crown to use their magics for the good of all. They have become a mix of protector, entertainer, athlete, and troubleshooter for the region.

Christmas. I love the maps.
- A campaign premise
- A character class
- Mechanics for binding and controlling fae creatures.
- 51 monsters for catching and binding
- A brief history of of the setting
- A dozen settlements
- Several factions
- a one page adventure
- A one-page dungeon
- 10 OSR spells converted for BFRPG
The current version varies from the one I gifted him a bit. It does not use the whimsical illustrations of Nicole Gustafsson that I used for his personal copy, because they are not mine to share. It instead has art collected from Artvee and Pixabay.
In a perfect world it would have some monster illustrations, original (and consistent) artwork, and a list of adventure hooks. Maybe a few more monsters as well. And some twists for the base classes.
I will be submitting it to the BFRPG forum to see if they can help me make it better,
