In this bare-bones role-playing game, you are dragons who have taken the form of common folk in order to explore their world & learn what it’s like to be a mere mortal in service to others.
I'm sharing this one because it's the first thing I made which I thought was pretty enough and innovative enough to be worthy of posting on itch. I hope more people try it, and that some of them like it, because it was something I really enjoyed dreaming up.
I'm now working on something prettier and simpler, about solemn pilgrimages across a fantasy world.
A hack of Mobile Frame Zero: Firebrands about fey nobles, arcanist-bureaucrats, and anarchist witches falling for their enemies, fighting with their friends, and allying with their rivals, amid a struggle for a magepunk fantasy city.
Hearts of Magic: Threads Entangled is based on Mobile Frame Zero: Firebrands, and is made up of ten games:
it's for 3-5 players, with no materials necessary beyond a coin to flip, and intended for one-shot play with no prep and no GM. It's perfect for new players and veteran story gamers alike!
Children of Water and Land
A softly Lovecraftian game hacked from Honey Heist (@gshowitt), in which you play as Deep One hybrids, with lives and families on land but a family and home waiting for you beneath the waves as well; by the end you will decide whether to balance your life between the two, or disappear into the water forever.
The game itself is 2 pages long, with a 3rd page consisting of random tables for any GM and players who want a little help figuring out what kind of game they want to play. The framework should be suited for any kind of game, from slice-of-life all the way to heists, high-speed chases, and battles. It should be playable with as few as 2 people (one GM and one player), but can support as many players as the GM feels like running the game for. You can download the txt file for free, or get the somewhat prettier and easier to read pdf for $3.
Gold & Girl: The Fabulous Grandmas RPG! Play a group of sassy, sexy, sweethearted roommates navigating the ups and downs of their golden years.
If you love kaftans, cheesecake, and heartwarming hijinks, you'll love this Lasers & Feelings hack -- my love letter to The Golden Girls and all things geriatric glam. It's free to download, but donations are graciously accepted!
Thank you for being a friend <3
I debated if I should share this here since it was my first attempt at this ever, and I did it for a jam so had tight time constraints, but I'm going to do it anyway because I'd like people to give it a look. Anyway, here's my game:
You’ve lived in these woods for many years. It’s treated you well all this time. The passing of each season has brought with it great beauty, but it has also presented unique hardships. Still, you managed to always make do and survive. Lately, you’ve noticed the forest has begun to change as less people dare to venture into this serene, magical place. Now only the Hunters rarely cross your path. This doesn’t bother you though, you’ll always do as you have and survive.
Into the Woods… is a solo tabletop role-playing experience that tasks you with surviving a full year in an ever-evolving forest. There will be magic, whimsy… and of course, danger! As the year progresses, the challenges you face will grow but you’ll have to overcome that adversity in order to survive.
I didn't get to playtest this before the deadline of the jam, so I'm sure that there are a few bugs or little things I could do to make things better, so feedback is very welcome. All I ask is you keep things constructive and try to let me know not only what could be improved, but what I did well. I hope you enjoy it :)
Hmm, not sure whether I should post here or in one of the other 'Share your Project' threads. I'll run with both for now, and if anyone has a suggestion about what would be more appropriate, I'm happy to follow advice!
So far I've posted three micro-RPGs...
Freedom or Toaster: You play as a Robot trying to escape from a busy mall to freedom!
Brigands of Sherwood: Filch as much loot as possible before Robin Hood makes you give it all away!
The Hoppy Pops: You're a Hoppy Pop, a character from one of those weird kid’s shows. In Ep. 9 your Happy Dance opened a gate to Hell!
All of these are designed to be an evening of fun. If anyone gets a chance to play them, an evening of laughs and general amusement is what I hope you get from them!
