A Wanderer’s Romance
The world began as nothing but ocean. The Origins raised up a million colourful islands, anything larger than a few dozen miles being swallowed by the envious deep. Some of these immaterial beings chose to take a physical form and live in the varied lands they had created, eventually settling into the forms of men and beasts. Our ancestors.
The Origins that did not take physical form paid a great cost. They were left unable to affect their world directly, relying upon influencing men with words and knowledge. Their teachings led to our understanding of elemental balance, the formation of the thousand Legendary Styles and the universal code of combat that define our world today.
You are a great man or woman. An errant trained in both the noble art of combat and in contests of body and mind. Drifting from one island to another, you have your own philosophy on life and the power to enforce it.
A Wanderer’s Romance is a game of martial art duels and tea-making contests set in a world of unnatural islands on an endless sea. It draws on its Wuxia influences but focuses on a character driven game with scope for incredible environments and a true sense of exploration.
Features of the game include:
- A fast, simple and easy to learn system for task resolution that spreads consistently across duels, contests, activities and group tests.
- Dozens of combat styles for characters to learn as well as countless other types of contest they can specialise in.
- A setting outline designed for maximum creative freedom. Every group’s world will be different but will share in similar themes.
- Multiple ways to support your allies from teaching them lessons in defeat and envigorating them through activities to training them in combat styles and preparing tea and food that will balance their elemental forces.

Thrilling Noir Stories
It was another cold and rainy night. I was sitting in my 20 square yards appartment and bureau, staring into a half-empty glass of bourbon whiskey. A knock on the door brought me back to reality and ended the daydreaming. Who might that be? A gorgeous blonde who wants to hire me to spy on her cheating husband or the landlord trying to get last month’s rent…
Thrilling Noir Stories is a storytelling or roleplaying game where the players impersonate private detectives, cops or other investigators from 1940s USA.
Thrilling Noir Stories was designed to allow the players to immerse in stories based on the pulp magazines from the first half of the 20th century or the movies of the “Film Noir” genre. If you have read the detective stories by Dashiel Hammett or Raymond Chandler, or movies based on those works, you probably know what we were aiming for.
It uses a simple task resolution mechanics and was created with a narrative gaming style in mind.
