Sundered Chains (Tricube Tales One-Page RPG)


You can download the full PDF for free by clicking on the Publisher Preview, but if you'd like to support my work, thank you!

“Eternal beings of immeasurable power walk the timeless realms, their very existence beyond the limits of human comprehension. But there is always some fool who tries to play with fire.

A pathetic mortal summoned you, attempting to bend you to their will, but your strength was far too great for them to overcome. They stole your adornments of power, leaving you naked and humiliated—then they tried to reason with you, to negotiate. You rejected their pitiful overtures with stony silence.

For decades, you remained trapped within their summoning circle until finally, they slipped up. One careless mistake was all it took, and freedom was yours. But until you can track down and reclaim your stolen artifacts, you will never be able to return to your former glory.”

Inspired by TV shows such as Sandman, Lucifer, and Supernatural, Sundered Chains is a standalone scenario for the Tricube Tales system and is usable as a micro-setting, but it is also a fully self-contained one-page RPG in its own right. You can print it on a single sheet of paper: The first page includes everything you need to play, while an optional second page expands the adventure generator with examples and twistsThe PDF uses layers for ease of printing.

This product was initially conceived as an alternative scenario for Twisted Wishes, answering the question of what happens if the characters can't—or won't—grant any wishes. It can also be used as a sequel, exploring the characters' fate once they've finally escaped their summoner. The two products can also be combined for a larger list of antagonists and a double-sized twist table.

I was wondering why you didn't submit this to the 1-page jam on itch. I found it through the Jam's discord, so I was surprised you didn't put it up there. Any reason?

BTW I love the premise and design of this. I look forward to leaving a review once I have a chance to play. :)

Hi Austin! I have an "exclusive seller" publisher account on DriveThruRPG, so this is the only place I can sell digital products, and everything I distribute on DriveThruRPG is available exclusively on this site.

Sundered Chains was initially conceived as a "what if?" variant of Twisted Wishes (to the point that it even shares the same trade dress), so I wanted to keep them together on DriveThruRPG. However, I did submit a different game (Interstellar Explorers) for the One-Page RPG Jam.

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.
