The Bodyguard

Now available at DriveThru RPG!

Ordinary people can have a go at being a hero, but the Bodyguard has the skill, the guts and the implanted energy shield to be the ultimate protector.

The Bodyguard is a new class for the Frontier. This veteran survivor is prepared to take a bullet for his comrades, which doesn’t sound like a terrible idea as he is also equipped with a damage-absorbing energy shield. What’s even better, there are always new ways to use the shield’s quantum field to pull off impressive tricks like teleporting. And, to top things off, there are juicy details on the special cores that can be found to upgrade a shield’s power to new levels of awesomeness.

If you want a taste at what the Bodyguard is capable off, grab a free preview going up to 3rd level right here.

The full edition of the Frontier is now available on DriveThru RPG.

If you liked the starter edition, the full edition of The Frontier will knock your socks off!

Heroes of The Frontier

Having already discussed the basic rules and setting of The Frontier in previous posts, it’s now time to have a look at how character creation works and the different characters you can play.

I mentioned before that The Frontier has Old School influences and you’ll get that vibe from character creation. It is a class-based game, with each class having unique abilities and a distinct role. Similar to other older gamers, classes have a fixed progression track, meaning that you cannot change the abilities they provide. Continue reading
