I’ve always wanted to try my hand at a traditional fantasy game and Bylina & Bogatyr almost qualifies. It’s a fantasy RPG set in medieval Russia where dragons roam the mountains of Kiev and brave warriors draw strength from the earth itself.
The bogatyr is a figure from Russian folklore, a warrior of unsurpassed strength and virtue, literally meaning "strongman" or "hero."
Bylinas are poetic songs that relate the deeds of the bogatyr (and their female counterparts, called the bogatyrka or polyanitsa, a word meaning "field women"). These epic tales of heroes, magic, dragons and witches inspired me to write this game.
