You have decided to leave your homeland, for reasons best known to you. Was it due to war, persecution, economic struggles, climate changes, or others? The only thing that matters is that you’ve attempted to get your life on track. A second chance of some sort.
“Stranger in a Foreign Land” is a journaling game, where you play out slices of life, as someone who tries to adapt to a new community. It’s about confronting who you are against the customs and functioning of people who welcomed you. You will make hard choices between learning to behave like a local and taking care of yourself. How will your identity change in the process?
This game needs only you, two ten-sided dice (2d10), and a pen & paper or word processor to write down the gameplay.
You can buy this game, powered by the ancient ASCII technology followed by Notebook.
