Spire is a roleplaying game about desperate revolutionary dark elves caught up in a secret war against the high elves, or aelfir, who rule the towering city of Spire.

You are a dark elf. Your home, the towering city of Spire, was occupied by the high elves two hundred years ago. Now, you have joined a secret organisation known as the Ministry, a paramilitary cult with a single aim – to overthrow the cruel high elves and restore the drow as the rightful rulers of the city.

What – or who – will you sacrifice to achieve your aims? Will you evade the attention of the authorities, or end up shot in the street like so many before you?

  • A quick and easy D10 system that lets you tell stories of brutal rebellion
  • Details on the districts, factions and personalities that make up Spire – the frozen high elf kingdom of Amaranth, the lawless undercity of Red Row, the mysterious Mortician sect and the bleeding hole in reality known as the Heart
  • Ten character classes, including the vagabond Knight, the sorcerer-artist Idol and the arachnid nurse Midwife
  • Multiple extra advances to sculpt your character, allowing them to learn the hidden magicks of the Ministry, fall back on their military training, or devote their existence to a mad cannibal king who lives under an abandoned warehouse
  • A gamesmastery chapter, written with an eye to help you craft conspiracies and power structures that your players can topple, subvert or be consumed by
  • Over fifty illustrations by the tremendously talented Adrian Stone

  • This game was played and recommanded by Guillaume, here its opinion:


    Well, I'm not going to lie, it's the illustrations that first aroused my curiosity. So it wasn't really quite sure what to expect that I started reading.
    Graphically, it's really very nice, and it illustrates quite well this dark universe of urban fantasy, mixing magic and technology. Spire invites you to take on the role of a black elf who has joined a group of resistance fighters in a city occupied and oppressed by the High Elves. With a game system based on resource management (money, discretion, health...) it is clear from the reading that you will have to conduct your rebellion with subtlety and discretion, because the authorities are watching and the slightest mistake could have serious consequences, not only for you but also for the population.
    Spire is a stakes game with a strong theme and a strong personality. I must say that I was quite seduced by this almost desperate atmosphere where the characters will always be on the alert.
