Introducing Feast of Legends, a tabletop RPG from Wendy’s
Fast-food chain Wendy’s has entered the board game scene with Feast of Legends, their first role-playing tabletop title. It plays much like the popular tabletop game Dungeons and Dragons.
In Feast of Legends, the restaurant’s mascot Wendy is a queen reigning over the peaceful nation of Freshtovia. However, a vaguely familiar villain called the Ice Jester is threatening to freeze the lands and keep the freshness away from Queen Wendy’s nation.
