Upcoming Projects

Turn

Turn is a slice-of-life supernatural roleplaying game set in the modern era. Players in Turn are shapeshifters in small, rural towns who must balance their human lives and habits with their beast needs and instincts. Their baser natures will challenge them as they strive towards goals from everyday tasks to life-changing experiences, and they will need to find comfort in one another to make it through without becoming stressed out. The system uses player discussion and a set of d6 rolls for resolution. Turn is slated to be a complete draft by the end of 2018, potentially pursuing crowdfunding


Armored Reckoning

In Armored Reckoning, two to five players take on the roles of tank crew members in a fictionalized World War Two gone wrong. They'll play soldiers and civilians from different countries and backgrounds who must come together to take their makeshift armored vehicles behind enemy lines and try to set things right. Face enemy tanks and infantry in tense, card-based encounters between moments of camaraderie and stress in camp.
