Amazing Tales: The Charity Adventure Compilation
Publisher: Amazing Tales
by Isaac M. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 11/21/2021 19:14:28

The full game book has a lot of useful context and guidance on running the game &c, but tbqh this is an entire game in itself right here, so that makes it a pretty solid trial version.

The Quiet Year
Publisher: Buried Without Ceremony

First, a great game for play-by-post if you can figure out a way to draw a shared map.

A game that is both chill and engaging, with conflict that can be dire for the characters but not stressful to handle for the players, with a clear end point and a lot of well-structured freedom.

A really lovely game, about beeing deep time explorers setting out to catalogue, and possible help, whoever you encounter.

There's no FTL, but the scope is still interstellar. It's not military sci-fi, which is always a plus, and while the fundamental structure of the game is to hurl rapidly through moral crises that will change and possibly break your characters, it's still hopeful and optimistic.

Usually freeform play is very daunting to me, but the goals of scenes and the intended loop of play, session by session, is well-structured and clealry-described.

I spend an uncomfortable amount of time considering the implications of living in a moebius city

Does protein chirality exist in Sig? One has to hope it doesn't.

I know it's not what's, you know, important, but this game lets you make FF-style summons, and it even lets you have a pet and then make several levels of summons of your pet

Like sure the spells are cool and the math is cool and having experience handed out at the beginning of the session to be spent when you want to spend it? Cool. But I'm here for the summons.

Fellowship 2nd Edition - A Tabletop Adventure Game
Publisher: Liberi Gothica Games
by Isaac M. [Verified Purchaser]

I love everything about this game. The art is a big part of that, to be clear, but as my introduction to the PbtA genre of systems, it was really eye-opening. I love the dedication to including the expected fantasy races, and also doing so in such an open-ended and customizable fashion.

The structure of play is grand, too. The focus on the party as a unit, and why it has to be, and helping people along the way, and community being strength rather than individual power being the be-all end-all... So much in modern fantasy fiction and gaming pulls from the aesthetics of Tolkein, but this is the first game I read that cared to emulate the heart of the LotR story: a mismatched, diverse, caring, and dedicated crew setting out to face an apocalyptic force with the backing of eveyrone they help along the way.

As a note: the on-the-spot imagination required to play this is daunting, and not common in mainstream TTRPGs as an ask of the players, so it's worth knowing that going in.
