if is a light and experimental attempt to combine the techniques and strategies that I use for writing with dice--- organizing my solo plays into narratively cohesive, satisfying stories--- with some of my favorite inspirational tables and procedures for playing with dice. It is system and genre agnostic, asking you to bring your own assumptions and concepts. It contains: 

  • a simple character and resolution system that can quickly be replaced with one you like better
  • a robust soloing oracle designed to always tell you what to write next
  • a framework for progressing through the story towards a conclusion, built on my favorite writing patterns
  • a bunch of inspirational tables geared towards writing with dice
  • a cheerful and motivational aesthetic, sans skeletons or swords

This is a very specific kind of game tailored for a very specific audience, pushing some of the boundaries of what you might think "a game" is. I wrote it as October's game of the month but it took longer to decorate and playtest than I expected. Enjoy!

Oh wow, this is very extensive, and incredibly generous for this price. Love the aesthetic too!

If you're interested in writing your own stories, but are at a loss where to start, this is definitely a great resource. Incredibly well done, super inspiring!


Oh, thank you! :)


In the few days I've played this, I've already generated more ideas and worked through some existing ones with more success than I had before. Thank you very much for making this available!


Glad to hear it! I also found I couldn't stop churning out cool ideas with it-- it's fascinating how it just seems to come together. Have fun and happy holidays!

Happy holidays to you too!
