OF GRUB & GRAIN is a short, system agnostic, tabletop minigame for your adventure rpg about the crafting and cooking of food, fodder and fare.

Grub is a tabletop roleplaying minigame, which is to say, it is meant to be played alongside your favourite ttrpg campaign, to help break the rules monotony of long term play and add a dash of depth and fun to the more interstitial moments of a larger system. It contains mechanics for a party of players to gather ingredients, make recipes, select accompaniments and try to craft a delicious meal in harmony! Whether your group is stuck at camp, with scarce resources available, or preparing to feed a family of nobles at a grand feast, Grub is meant to be adaptable all sizes and complexities of meal.


3-6 players  - Grub is GMless, if you are playing a system with a GM, they join in or sit out. 

Polyhedral dice sets (or digital dice roller), ideally one set per player, but they could be shared. 

pen/pencil + paper

30-60 minutes

 Of Grub & Grain includes 10 recipe cards that can be printed out and filled in! 

I'd love to see/hear about the meals you make - find me on twitter

Special thanks to my rad play testers, the Brain Trust discord, and also Jonathan.
