When I was reading the other entries in the 2021 Character Creation Challenge, I saw an entry for the marketing role playing game, Wendy’s Feast of Legends and had a V-8 forehead slap moment. When am I ever going to get a chance to play this game? (spoiler alert: never) So using it for the #CharacterCreationChallenge was perfect. I’d get a little bit of a taste (pun intended) of the game and I can check a box off in my geek cred. I even bought lunch to go along with this character set up, so the advertising must be working.
So first you select your order. I elected to go with the Order of the Spicy Chicken Sandwich. A fire based magic user (even with the weird name) sounded good. Next you rolled 4d4 (to represent the $4 for 4 deal that I’ve never taken advantage of) to come up with numbers for your stats. The stats used are Strength, Intelligence, Charm, Arcana and Grace. Pretty basic. After electing which stat to place my five rolls into (and adding the bonus from my order) I ended up with STR 8, INT 10, CHA 7, ARC 13 and GRA 9. Got 11 hit points, (rolled 10 + 1 for the order). Only got a basic weapon and some order skills (spells basically). 10GP as starting money doesn’t really allow buying anything else. I guess additional equipment is picked up during roleplay.
The RAW lists additional skills and spells for different levels. But I was unable to find out how characters move up in level. I wonder if this is buried deep in the GMs section? However since I was eating food from Wendy’s I would have gotten several buffs for that game. Other than a bio (His teachers didn’t understand, they kicked him out of school at a tender early age, just because he didn’t want to learn things. He had other interests. He liked to burn things!) this character is done. Bonus points if you can name the song I just quoted. Here’s a scan of the sheet.
Yea, I’m not seeing myself playing or homebrewing for this game. I don’t even know if anyone is even playing it now.
The advertising budget for this project must not have lasted very long. The game was released in 2019 and the website for the game is no longer active. It’s not even pointing towards the primary Wendy’s website. Thus the link above is to the free PDF on Archive.org.
While looking through the PDF, my college age art-student kid loved the internal art in this book. So that is some high praise in my mind.
I would also like to say that I’m very grateful that Taco Bell didn’t release a marketing role-playing game. I don’t know if I could have handled that one.
While I was writing the date at the top of the character sheet, I wrote 2021 and then quickly corrected it to 2022. It was the same mistake that commonly happened when writing checks in January of a new year.
I’ve got a few more links sent to me to add to the Character Creation Page. The RPG.net forum page is going like gangbusters (no not the RPG). I’m also seeing a lot of use of the #CharacterCreationChallenge hashtag. Where are you seeing new characters at?
