Would love to purchase this (actually the complete collection), but the only payment option is PayPal, which I do not have. Everything else I've purchased on itch.io has had the option to pay by card.
Fellowship 2nd Edition - A Tabletop Adventure Game
This is the second edition of the game. Changelog.png can be found here.
Fellowship is a game for 3-6 players about going on an adventure, in the same vein as Lord of the Rings or Wakfu or Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders. The system is loosely based on the Apocalypse Engine. In Fellowship, one player is the Overlord, a maniacal being who has become a Threat to the World, and everyone else forms a fellowship of heroes to stop them. The focus of Fellowship is on the journey you take and the communities you meet, and saving the day is what you're here to do.
Every single player in Fellowship has a ton of narrative control, taking some of the burden off of the typical game master's job. You are playing as a hero, a champion of your people, and you are the truth in all things related to your people. When you play as the Elf, you decide what the Elves are, what their culture is like, what they value and care about, what their relationship is with the rest of the world. When someone asks about the Elves, all eyes will turn to you for the answer.
One player is the Overlord, the one attempting to destroy this world, and they create a character just like everyone else does. They control the forces of evil and they have a master plan that the fellowship must stop. They play by different rules than the other players, and will do their best to make sure saving the world is an epic journey and a fun challenge for everyone.

I had not realized I didn't have that set up, Sae! Thank you for letting me know.
You should be able to use your cards now to get anything from my store here.
Are there plans to publish editions beyond the 2nd edition of this game?
I ran a my first session of Fellowship 2n Ed recently and setup was good and everyone is excited to play. There where a couple of things we stumbled on during setup:
1. It's very unclear who "The Squires" people are that they are supposed to be creating facts about. It's also tricky for the Squire to answer why they are in the Fellowship unless they go last.
2. The rules state that Bonds can be created with any named character but the Fellowship Playbooks states bonds should be made with Fellowship members.
3. The Quickstart reference guide is Group Questions > Bonds > Rumours but Guided Establishment steps go Group Questions > Overlord Bonds > Rumours > Fellowship Bonds.
Seriously, not enough people talk about Fellowship and all the beautiful stories it can tell and all the different stories it is able to tell with ZERO modifications to its mechanics. Sponsored By Nobody has done some amazing Actual Plays with it that really demonstrate how flexible it can be. Absolutely a perfect purchase that tells all our favorite stories of hope and found family.
Just ran a session zero for this! Are there any cool fan communities you know of? Would love to see what other GMs have done with their games.
Sponsored By Nobody, a podcast, has done multiple actual plays with it in settings like Star Wars and Transformers... Can be used just as easily for a Steven Universe (fusions always roll with Hope, except when they don't.)
Has there been any jams or fan created content? I love this game so much and want to see if there are others that do too! Also, is there discord or reddit?
If there is fan-created content, nobody has told me about it! There have been a couple of started-on fan playbooks, but no finished or released ones.
There is no official subreddit or discord, but fellowship talk is fairly common in the Six Feats Under discord. If you have questions or just want to chat with other tabletop gamers, feel free to stop by: https://discord.gg/SC9zKus
Why is this more expensive than DTRPG?
It isn't? The PDF price on dtrpg is 15.95. Over here, it is 14.95. I took a dollar off because itch.io gives me a better cut. Even at a dollar less over here, I make more money per sale of itch.io PDFs than I do per DTRPG sale.
Unless you happened to buy it when it was DTRPG's deal of the day, Fellowship is cheaper over here.
Thank you so much for the free copy of 2nd edition!
