Summary: The Palladium Fantasy Role-Playing Game often shortened to Palladium Fantasy or PFRPG is a game produced by Palladium Books. It is set in the Palladium world use of the unofficial name ‘Palladia’ is discouraged by the publisher some 10000 years after a great war between the elves and dwarves. First published in July 1983 as The Palladium Role-Playing Game the Palladium Fantasy Role-Playing Game saw a second edition in April 1996. The two are largely compatible though the second edition uses a later iteration of Palladium’s ruleset to be more compatible with the rest of their Megaverse. Like many fantasy games the Palladium Fantasy Role-Playing Game includes many different sentient races as playable characters. In addition to humans and the aforementioned elves and dwarves there are gnomes small humanoids who once had a republic kobolds wiry subterranean humanoids who tend to be evil goblins small ugly stupid humanoids some of whom have remnants of faerie magic ogres large strong primitive humans orcs trolls changelings who are capable of assuming many humanoid forms and Wolfen. The Wolfen are large humanoid wolves who have in the past century established their own Empire in the extreme north of the continent. Unlike many other fantasy games there is very little interbreeding between the races. Humans and ogres are related closely enough that offspring are possible but any children are considered ogres. Wolfen and the related Coyles who resemble humanoid coyotes may be able to breed as one supplement Adventures in the Northern Wilderness implies that a non-player character may be half-Coylehalf-Wolfen but this is not confirmed.
