I played through half of Kingmaker, the Pathfinder RPG adventure path in which the players explore a territory and found a settlement there.
I loved the settlement-building aspect of Kingmaker and would love to adapt it to another RPG system that isn’t quite so crunchy as Pathfinder.
Does anyone have any suggestions for such a game?
Freebooters on the Frontier and The Black Hack seem to be well-oriented toward sandbox exploration. I believe Stonetop has good settlement creation, at least at a village level.
I’ve also seen some Dungeon World stuff:
Perilous Wilds is a must-have for exploration support.
The compendium classes for settlement leader-type characters - such as the Householder, Landed Gentry, Merchant, and Shopkeeper classes from the Class Warfare book.
Strongholds from Dwarfare Games.
Anything else come to mind?
