Love's Labour's Liberated, a 5e RPG zine.

The ideals of Chivalry, the power of Enchantment, and the magic of Love deserve a place in your 5th Edition fantasy campaign. To ignite that creative spark on game night, Love's Labour's Liberated introduces several thematically-appropriate variations of 5e mechanics.

Within this zine, you'll find rules for a romance-flavored Cavalier archetype, the Cavalier of Love. A passionate defender of worthy causes, the downtrodden, and a squire-most-handsome as much as any maiden fair, this idealized fighter makes war for love.

Ready to play an Enchanter? Your silver tongue is magical and as spellbinding as the most amorous sonnet; all who meet you want to bask in your presence. For your mage, there's a new spell list that expresses your magics in more evocative ways, and thoughts on how to make your character the paramount paramour.

Beyond archetypes and new spells, there are Magic Items forged in the fires of love and loss. These treasures are powered by the flames of emotion. Enhancing the feel of this project is the the mood-setting poetry of Leland Beauchamp.

But gaming in love is not without peril both in the game and at the gaming table. To that end, there are extensive essays on keeping the game comfortable as you have fun without crossing any lines. 

This zine includes 44 pages of: 

  • Fighter Martial Archetype: Cavalier of Love
  • Wizard Arcane Tradition: Enchantress/Enchanter
  • Four new spells
  • Eleven new magic items
  • Seven adventure hooks
  • "Heart's Hostage", a low-level adventure (includes two maps)
  • A bonus art card that doubles as an X-Card
