"Alienòr is a lyrical game that approaches an unusual subject with confidence and verve. In a world stuffed with monster hunts and power fantasy, Alienòr takes a different approach and delivers a really fun, unique gaming experience."
—Jason Morningstar, creator of Fiasco and Night Witches

This is a storygame about the ladies-in-waiting to Eleanor of Aquitaine, an intriguing medieval queen. Around this queen a hidden women's culture emerged—subtle, intangible, poetic and not less passionate. In the middle of it is the capricious and unfathomable Queen. There's no getting around her. Hidden in the silk folds of history, this world has its own stories. Now it is up to you to tell those stories, together.

  • Cooperative storytelling, with up to four players.
  • Each player is narrator in turn, and makes a story with the help of the others and random lists.
  • Players take the role of a lady of the court. They will also roleplay the mysterious Alienòr by random chance. The characters love her in their own ways.
  • France, sun, romance, passion...

This game is free. Both design, layout and art were created independently by me. You can support me by Paying What You Want, because I'll make more stuff that you like. Thanks!

“Definitely a must-play for every passionate storyteller! 10/10 Would play again.”
—Bernàt de Ventadorn, troubadour and acquaintance of Alienòr.

"...A good format for an intimate, somewhat mature game."
—David Shirduan, micro-reviewer

"It all ended with us all four accepting that we should cherish the moment we were living in, our friendship to eachother, and that we realized that we were now becoming grown up women. It was kinda a 'one last night with the gang' feeling that came up.

I really appreciated, as a roleplaying game designer, another game that didn't use dice or any other kind of randomness to determine the scenes, and that had a laid back sense of playing. No heroism, no hard framing around conflicts in every scene."
—Rickard Elimää, storygamer and player

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.
