Guided By Firelights

Welcome to the Firelights Creator Kit. You will find all the information to make your own game Guided by Firelights.

Firelights is a condensed solo/co-op role-playing game about a guided journey across a plagued land. It is a game of exploration, discovery, and challenges. Inspired by the Metroidvania video game genre, players take on the role of a last of its kind lone-protagonist whose role is to guide back the dead back to the underworld after a corruption took over. Using accessible gaming material (2 six sided dice, a deck of card, and a notebook), players will tackle challenges, evade danger, explore and create a map of the land, fight dangerous bosses, search for treasures, and more.

This Creator Kit is structured into two chapters.

  • The System Reference Document (SRD): This chapter includes the actual open licensed SRD of Firelights which you can directly copy and adapt as you see fit to make your own game, as long as you give us attribution for our work. See below for more information concerning the license and attribution details.
  • The Checklist: This chapter covers all the guidelines on how to create your own game based on the format, setting, and mechanics used in Firelights.
