Introduction

We are introducing a new role-playing game that deals with the topic of upheaval in a medieval style society and the challenges of a reformation. The game does not claim to be historically accurate. Rather, it is about taking up different focal points of the reformation topic and making them tangible.

Nesciamus is a game in which the group plays together and tries to reach a good ending. This is not so easy in the world of Nesciamus and requires good coordination, good ideas and daring actions.

The game was designed by a group of young people to be fun first and foremost. It contains exciting scenes in which entertaining discussions and arguments take place. However, the game also offers a basis for dealing with ethical and moral issues.

ABOUT THE PROJECT

The Nesciamus project is an initiative of young people who enjoyed working together on an international level to learn about game design and create an innovative role-playing game. The game was created in Germany, Iceland and Sweden and it has multiple purposes. First of all, we want you to have fun with this and enjoy interesting moments in good company while sitting around a table and playing a game. Second of all, the game is a wonderful opportunity to make in-game experiences and base discussion about values and ethics on them, making the game an immersive learning tool that can be used in many youth work situations.


We would like to see this game in the hands of many more youth workers, so anyone involved in youth work can get a free copy of the game from us. Contact us using the form below or meet the Dragon Legion team at one of the events listed below (where we will hand out more games to those involved in youth work):
