Golden Sky Stories

Selected Option:
Softcover, B&W Book
PDF + Softcover, B&W Book

Golden Sky Stories is a heartwarming, non-violent role-playing game from Japan, by Ryo Kamiya. In this game, players take on the role of henge, animals that have just a little bit of magical power, including the ability to temporarily take on human form. You can be a fox, raccoon dog, cat, dog, rabbit, or bird, and each kind has their own special magical powers. Players will then attempt to solve problems around a small enchanted town with ingenuity, co-operation and friendship.

Golden Sky Stories requires one Narrator, 2-4 players, pencils and paper, and tokens to keep track of Dreams.

Does this purchase include everything needed to play, or do I need to order a rule book or something also?

Does anyone know if there's a way to access the kickstarter bonus materials? I'm specifically looking for the raccoon and the sheep character descriptions. I had thought that they would be included in the extra materials, but I don't see them.
Thanks so much (love the game)!

Are they in another supplement, perhaps?
If you click on the publisher you should be able to see all the expansions, and there's a lot!

Would this be simple enough for my seven-year-old daughter?

Yes, I think it would be simple enough, and I think your daughter would love this game, as it's overall very rules light and easy to deal with mid game.

I do find that some folks get confused about what Resource to use when (it should be noted that I run this game A LOT at both home and at cons,) as you have 5 Resource pools you are managing--Dreams, Wonder, Feelings, Memories, and Threads. 3 of the pools (Wonder, Feelings, and Memories) have a lot of overlap: For example, you can only use Wonder for Powers and Feelings for Attribute boosts, but you can use both for Transforming, and then you have Memories, which can be used for anything either Wonder of Feelings could do. But I don't think this would be a problem for her.

I personally don't care for the way Memories or the 5th pool, Threads, work, so I have simplified it further, reducing the Resource pool down to 3 (feel free to borrow this if you choose to):
- Instead of spending Threads like the instructions recommend, I just...See more

Will there be a PoD version of this sometime? The physical version from the kickstarter a while ago was very nice and I would like to gift a physical copy to a friend.

Will the pdf of the もののけこやけ translation become available for sale here too eventually? I missed the kickstarter unfortunately, but I saw the prerelease PDF was distributed to KS backers in July if I'm not mistaken. And as an aside, are there any plans to translate the ひとつなこみち and これからのみち supplements too in the future? I'd sure prefer having some pretty looking translations instead of my own hand scribbles after all. :)

It's taking longer than we'd like, but we're planning to do a Kickstarter to fund a print run and full PDF release of Mononoke Koyake, and to produce some more original material.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
