  • Recommended: 1+ players, age 4+
  • Materials: One 6-sided die. Optional: Five more 6-sided dice, something to write with and on, and one warm beverage per player.
  • About: Roll dice to help build a story of holiday adventuring fun! Storytelling prompt-based game that can be used for journaling or Q and A.

Your adventurer is between quests and the promising comradery of the local tavern calls to them. As other adventurers share tales of protecting a Village of Serenading Slimes and mapping out The Dungeon of Klutzy Kobolds, what sort of stories will your adventurer share, and will they be good enough to earn a free drink in the process?

Adventurer's Respite is a game for 1+ players. All it requires is some six-sided dice and something to record with (cold beverages as time keepers are optional). Six tables with six prompts each offer a ton of fun possibilities. The prompts include what the quest was, what your adventurer was dealing with, and how they might wind up feeling about it. Expand the story where you see fit, and other adventurers will ask questions for further details.

As a solo game, Adventurer's Respite can act as a tool for truly fun tales to keep to yourself or share with your friends at a later date.

Inspired by So You're in a Tavern by Live Real Press and a conversation that also led to Downtime by Aaron Goss, we hope this between-adventures game will lead to many fun stories ahead. 

There's also a holiday-themed version called Holiday Respite!

This is super clever! I love the flow of the story prompts, and it's awesome that it fits on a few pages (with some nice-sized font, no less)! Plus your energy is always super terrific anyway, and it leaps off of these pages :D
