The game aims to offer a fun and strategic experience for players of all skill levels.


Tarot cards power this RPG from Resident Bard, a team of game designers and storytellers. In Terminus, players embark on a journey of self-discovery and growth as they navigate a world full of magic and mystery using tarot cards to guide their decisions and shape the story. The game combines elements of traditional RPGs with the symbolism and intuition of tarot to create a unique and immersive gaming experience.

The game features a unique system for character creation, combat, and spellcasting that emphasizes player choice and creativity, making each play-through a unique experience.


Filled with adventure, danger, and a touch of dark humor, the_bookmarked is a "post-post-apocalyptic" necromancer RPG zine by Freddie Watkins, played using books from your shelf and custom bookmarks.

These Stars Will Guide You Home

This solo journaling RPG by Albi is about a voyage in search of home, and the myth written about it centuries later. The game will have you playing as two different characters, one before the other. In the first phase, you explore the sea, leading a fleet of thirteen ships through a mysterious archipelago, while the second phase of the game takes place a century later, once your journey is complete.
