Each of the players is represented by a young Gaul who is just starting out in a certain unconquered and indomitable Gaulish Village. They are nephews and nieces of Vitalstatistix, Getafix, Fullyautomatix, Unhygienix, Cacofonix, Geriatrix, Asterix and Obelix (but not Dogmatix).
In this RPG the characters are young Gauls who aspire to become like their famous uncles. Each adventure normally begins with them being offered a chance to carry out a mission for Vitalstatistix the Chief, or Getafix the Druid. Occasionally adventures might come from other famous characters.
Initially these adventures will be close to home. Local towns, the Roman Encampments, the sacred woods and shores of their homeland are all ripe for low-level adventures. Later adventures will take them further afield. Such places as the wet shores of Brittania, the gloomy woods of Germania, the glory of Imperial Rome and the exotic River Nile all beckon to ambitious young Gauls.
This is a strictly tongue-in-cheek set of roleplaying rules which are fun to play – especially if you’ve had some red wine and maybe a boar ot two…
