Gather Your Supplies

Sit a spell, open your imagination, and maybe pour yourself a cup of tea. Maybe a nice jasmine green?

Playing Journey requires little more than this book, one or more six-sided dice, some playing cards, and your imagination. The game will start by walking players through the process of defining where their Journey will take place, called the Setting. This can be as large as a universe or as small as a single room and is not limited by genre. Players can dive into fantastic settings of all stripes.

Players then decide on the physical Form that they will use to move throughout this Setting and grab their preferred method of taking notes to serve as their Traveler's Journal. This will end up filled with the amazing discoveries that travelers are about to make.

Next, players will roll some dice to determine the type of places, things, and people they'll explore within their Setting, called Waypoints. They'll use their imagination to visualize what those Waypoints could possibly be, and then draw some cards to determine what specific details of this Waypoint will be Explored.

Before they leave, they'll be sure to create a short postcard inscription to get a different view of the experiences they've had at this Waypoint. After all, everyone loves a nice Wish You Were Here! moment.

Finally, after a long Journey, players will head home and drop their bags, walking through a process to Reflect on the events, sights, sounds, and experiences of their Journey.

At the end of this process, players will hold in their hands a Traveler's Journal filled with new insights and creative developments on the small parts of their worlds and spaces that they've explored.

All of this amazing creativity and imagination can be enjoyed as entertainment, or it can be used to feed new inspiration back into whatever creative work inspired you to embark on a Journey in the first place.

Being able to safely become a tourist in my own worlds is massively fun. I've had more fun with Journey than I have with anything else in literally months. This is seriously a dream come true for me. Fantastic work.


Hobbyist Writer

This is helping so much. I can get so overwhelmed by world building every little thing, and this has helped me focus my energies. I've written up an entire magical system that previously felt impossible to figure out, just by putting myself in the headspace of a tourist experiencing it. Thank you for coming up with this! I can tell it's going to be a valuable tool in my arsenal of creativity.

Journey is a work of love inspired by the solo experiences of Alone Among the Stars by Takuma Okada and Artefact by Jack Harrison. Consider spending some time with Journey's wonderful inspirations and support their creators.

Many thanks to my friends at The Society of the Golden Rose for being infinitely patient with my crazy ideas, my insane schemes, and my never-ending flow of vocal enthusiasm. You crazy weirdos are some of my favorite people, and I appreciate each one of you.

Finally, my most heartfelt thanks to the amazing people of the RPG Talk Discord. You all have been so patient, helpful, and wonderful, and Journey would not exist if not for your kindness.

nothing substantial in the demo. A few blue colored pages and a page with a hot air balloon. no way to judge mechanics or content. Where do i find a better demo?

I see your post below about "The Golden Rose". Inequity and Prejudice group. Is this group part of the core of Journey or can I make whatever world I want? I ask because I want to write fiction. Unmonitored and free. I'm looking for an unbiased, blank slate. Can I expect this in Journey? And please know I ask this with the utmost respect and kindness. I just want to know BEFORE I buy.

Hey there! Sorry for any confusion, that group is only referenced in the dedication, Journey itself places no shape or expectations on the world you intend to explore. It’s very much a genre-less framework to explore worlds and gain new ideas and inspiration

Oh! The Society of the Golden Rose is an in-game group that my character formed in a D&D 5e campaign. Turned into the core of the current campaign I'm running for the same group of players, and is going to end up becoming a whole homebrew thing over on the DM's Guild once I can get my head around another project once the follow up to Journey is completed.

Essentially it's a group formed in Waterdeep to combat issues of inequity and prejudice that our characters were experiencing in the city during Dragon Heist. Yes, I formed a fantasy nonprofit, and I have no regrets! The folks in the group are some of my closest TTRPG friends, and so I wanted to memorialize them in Journey.

If you're a worldbuilder, writer, dungeon master, or just like exploring imaginary places, Journey is a wonderful game about to expanding and expounding on the fascinating details you didn't know you knew about the places you create. I've surprised myself with what I've found and really enjoyed the discovery process.

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.
