Home to a diverse population of humans, elves, goblins, and other species; this cobblestone cosmopolis is a hotspot for commerce and entertainment. The Sprawl offers all sorts of fine establishments for would-be travelers, such as The Twisted Sister Tavern, the best watering hole this side of Little Ogre Town. Whether you’re looking for a romantic spot for that special night out, or a public place to end a failing relationship, The Twisted Sisters Tavern should be at the top of your list! Any fan of the fantastical would do well to visit the Digsite, where Dr. Beatrix Von Matterhorn and her team of researchers are hard at work procuring power crystals – the key to making the Sprawl the political powerhouse it is today. Sports fans can always find a rousing time at Goblinball Stadium, home of the Sprawl Brawlers (every Thursday is riot night, so dress accordingly!). And if you’re looking for some salty sea air, questionable characters and illegal fish fights, you’d best try your hand at The Docks. More about Lil’ Guardman
Lil’ Guardsman is a narrative deduction game, inspired by the classic point-and-click genre and the mechanics of Papers, Please. Set in a high-fantasy world with the comedic sensibility of Monkey Island and other 90s Lucasarts adventure classics, Lil must make tough decisions as she decides who to allow into her castle home. Consequences can be severe, so you’ll have to make clever use of your abilities to uncover mass conspiracies and protect your castle and family from devious interlopers.
