Clean Spirit is a token-based, rules-lite TTRPG designed to inspire an emotionally meaningful cleaning session with your new or old characters.

There's nothing quite like cleaning and the magic of discovering something lost, placing a treasured item in the perfect spot, finding the strength to let something go, and reliving the stories and memories these items inspire. 

It's time to join your fellow players and get to work. You'll achieve goals for your dwelling and hopefully have a meaningful experience along the way. The rules for Clean Spirit are beginner friendly, and the game can be completed in one 3-4 hour session, depending on the number of players and amount of roleplay.

While the stage for this game is "clean your dwelling," the game is more about... 

  • Discovering things that matter to your character.
  • Exploring the origins of your group.
  • Deepening relationships.

Clean Spirit can serve as a mid-campaign slice of life session, a campaign starter to meet characters, an epilogue to say goodbye to characters, or you can play it without any connection to your other games. Tuck this game into your favorite system (including 5e) for a fresh exploration of your characters and their shared histories. 

Your preferred world doesn't matter. This game is somewhat modular, fitting in almost any environment. There are roll tables that might be more suitable for modern and fantasy settings, but the ruleset works whether your characters are creatures sharing a tree, astronauts in a space station, guild members sharing a building, or poor adventurers sharing a room at the tavern for a long while.

Clean Spirit is a loose, mostly freeform role-playing game with a focus on characters and their interactions with each other and their world. There aren't a lot of numbers to track, and the character sheet mostly serves as a quick way to organize your thoughts, but you might not even need it.

AT A GLANCE

Clean Spirit doesn't require a game master, but it offers support should you want to play with one.

  • Ideal for 3-5 players.
  • Play for 3-4 hours in one session (depending on length of roleplay).
  • Learn about your dwelling, characters, relationships, and more about what's important to them.

WHAT YOU NEED

  • The character sheet or a way to track your goals and progress.
  • Several tokens (buttons, coins found in between the cushions, loose bolts, matches, or any other small object without a home).
  • At least one 6-sided die.

WHAT YOU GET

I created several pieces of custom artwork which you'll find previewed on this page and inside the text! The PDF is easy to navigate thanks to tabs that link to the start of each section. If you're not a fan of the tabs, the traditional PDF bookmark system and table of contents are also hyperlinked. The spread version of the PDF is the best way to engage with this game, but I've uploaded the single-page version for those of you who want all the options.

  • A full-color PDF with bookmarks, hyperlinked tabs, and artwork.
  • A printer friendly, plain text document.
  • Character sheets that are fillable in your favorite PDF note taking app, or you can print them out.

WHAT FOLKS ARE SAYING

"It's like Marie Kondo, but with pen and paper."
-Ennio, Clean Spirit Playtester "An interesting exploration into how much of ourselves is stored in the spaces we occupy, and how our possessions and spaces inform and facilitate our interactions with ourselves and others."
-Clean Spirit Playtester "A flexible, low-key "downtime" game that serves as a framework for meaningful RP and a contemplative story beat."
-Clean Spirit Playtester "A game where a group of friends clean a shared space and find time to connect with their pasts, their futures, and each other."
-J.C. Darcy,Clean Spirit Playtester

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.
