A downloadable poetry game

Buy Now$3.00 USD or more

Wicked magics, the corrupt works of those in power, and even the cruel fates themselves have ruined you and left you tragic. The only power you have in this world is your pen and your neighbours. Each word you write will become a refraction of the already shattered visage of your present and future, and with enough of them, you may even see your way through. 

With only a six-sided die, writing material, and time, you and any number of fellow players gather in secret to document your world's history, mark your lost ones' memories, struggle against the world that has laid you low, and find solace among your fellows.

(updated to v1.1: new text layout, and additional flavour text)
