A Slice of Life, Supernatural Roleplaying Game of Shapeshifters in Small Towns

A raccoon and a raven raid the cash register of a main street cafe.

Turn is a slice-of-life, rural supernatural tabletop roleplaying game for three to six people. Players are shapeshifters in a small, rural town--able to turn into animals like raccoons, cougars, and bears. They must balance their human lives and habits with their beast lives and instincts, while pursuing acceptance and community with other shifters - and with the mundane humans and beasts that populate the town. Players and the Town Manager build their town together using a unique town building system, and create the characters who populate it and the wilderness around it. Turn uses the Script Change toolbox to support player comfort and consent, and explores themes of identity, community, self care, and otherness.

I can't write a review here since I purchased on Here's a review anyway:


"Turn" is a finely-tuned engine for producing engaging, powerful personalised storytelling and The Feels. It begins with collaboratively building the small town your game will be set in alongside the PCs and NPCs who will populate it.

It features character archetypes with their own frameworks for character generation, partly to ensure those stories have mechanics and pacing that fits their contexts. (It's not using PBTA, but there are similarities if that helps ground things for anybody.)

As an example that has stuck with me ever since I ran into it, one of those archetypes has a prompt for generating NPCs which says "Who used to be proud of you?"

Ow. OW.

Working backwards, if you're a fan of "Night in the Woods," then it feels like "Turn"'s approach to town generation could easily have built Possum...See more

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.
