Milhamah: Fighting Words RPG Simple Edition v. 0.1
A downloadable game
In this tabletop adventure RPG, the linguistic parts of speech come to life, wield ancient alphabet powers and fight an apocalyptic war to overthrow a new Tower of Babel's tyranny. It's basically a battle shonen series, only about linguistics and the Hebrew language.
Welcome to a world of Avgad, where words matter, and death and life are in the power of the tongue. Use special 12-sided dice (or your own at home) to form Hebrew letter combinations and pull off surreal, spectacular attacks. Visualize gripping conflicts and then overcome them in brazen, subversive ways, usually by beating the stuffing out of smug, know-it-all bad guys.
This game is based on my 2018-19 "Milhamah" comic series. The RPG was compiled for a game jam in around 12 days based on lore and story notes I've been accumulating over the past year and beyond.
Please bear with the work in progress, as likely there are some typos and inconsistencies with v. 0.1 due to the tight deadline. I plan to tidy up those loose ends in the next few weeks. In the mean time, try out the mechanics and have fun with the concept!
