  • New setting-specific rules.
  • 8 new bonds.
  • 2 new joker paths.
  • 40 new research prompts.
  • 160 new quest prompts.

This is a more "adventure-ish" version/expansion for Grimoire? Let's say...going to the world and use your spells instead of researching? Like adventuring to the world/delving to dungeons?

Hi Cl4yton,

Thank you for your query! Currently, GRIMOIRE is not set up for that style of game, however I do have the beginnings of such a game in development.

This project will not be released for a little while now, but you might find my current project helpful with allowing some kind of adventure and exploration: GOLEM.
