Black Flag Roleplaying is the 5E-compatible game system powering Kobold Press's new Tales of the Valiant roleplaying game. This free system includes all of the rules and sheets needed to run a Tales of the Valiant game or anything else using the Black Flag rules. Black Flag is intended to be flexible, so it doesn’t assume a standard setting. These rules are compatible with any published setting or unique worlds designed for your table. However, these rules assume the setting you adopt is rooted in the fantasy genre. 

The system provides sheets for characters, NPCs, and items, and implements the content of the BFR Reference Doc pre-created to make it easy to start a game.

Beta Release

This version of the system is a beta release, intended to collect user feedback and find bugs. We encourage everyone playing the system at this point to let us know anything that could be improved with the system by letting us know on the official Kobold Press Discord, the Tales of the Valiant channel on the Foundry VTT discord, or by filing an issue on our GitHub issue tracker.
