Written by Nick Smith and Jake Richmond, the RPG is set in the world of Richmond’s popular Modest Medusa webcomic. Should you open the door to action and adventure in the land of Yeld? Or should you make sure the door stays locked and barred and you don’t go anywhere near this roleplaying game? You’ll find out!

Summary
While The Magical Land of Yeld might not be the best choice for rather young players, due to some of the darker themes throughout, there's plenty here to recommend running it for gamers of every other stripe. The rules are light without feeling overly simplified and there's loads of gameable material within the book. Granted, I wouldn't run this as written, in regards to a handful of design decisions, but it's not as if this is a broken design in any way. I think this is an excellent game and very much worth picking up even if just for the setting alone if you'd rather use a crunchier rules set.
