"Nobody is ever born into this world as a soldier."
- Rau Le Creuset, Mobile Suit Gundam Seed


CHVLR is a journaling game about the terrible cost of war and the scars it leaves on those chosen to fight it. It is a game about violence. It is a game about fear.

But most of all, it is a game about hope. Its power and its absence.


Using the Wretched & Alone system, you play as the newest recruit to an experimental military program. You are a teenager, barely into your adolescence before you are chosen, or perhaps forced, to pilot a colossal bipedal robot known as a CHVLR (Chevalier, pronounced "shuh" + "VAL" + "ee" + "ay").

There has been little in the way of training. You are the only one that can pilot this machine - you are the only one with the ability to command its power. Now it is time for you to take to the field.

You will see and do terrible things. You will kill.

Few can truly prepare for the burden that such a responsibility places on your mind and your body. You are so young, and so much rests on your shoulders.


The game requires a standard deck of playing cards, a six-sided die, 10 tokens, a tumbling block tower (optional), and a way to record your entries.

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.
