A downloadable Role-Playing Game

Buy Now$5.00 USD or more

A world ravaged by arcane chaos and scarred by cataclysmic disaster. Life this planet once knew has been wiped clean, only echoes and remnants of their existence remain. Upon this landscape are Oceans of Garbage, Deserts of Luminescent Glass, Forests of Feral Fungi, and the bones of Ruined Structures waiting to be picked clean.

Across this Distorted Wasteland is a narrative Role-Playing Game, focused on telling sincere stories of absurd creatures and strange locales. Firmly planted in the Gonzo Post-Apocalyptic genre, ADW has influences such as...

  • Adventure Time
  • Dr. Seuss
  • Samurai Jack
  • Dying Earth

And plenty more! You can take on the role of a cryptid-style animal-person, sentient crystal, mutagenic bipeds, or intelligent cuttlefish as you journey in this wild world.

Mechanically, you can expect a d12 dice pool system, designed from the ground up to be solo-playable. Unlike other systems of similar design, the game is purposefully reigned in to a modest maximum roll of 6 dice at a time. This is meant to keep the fun of rolling multiple dice without loss of statistical averages, or by slowing/halting the natural flow of gameplay. Emphasis is placed more on character stats than equipment or abilities, placing it more towards "skill-based" than "class-based" design. 

Advancement is linked to your character's Goals, encouraging not only a narrative first approach but a sandbox style of play. Pick what you want to accomplish, how you want to accomplish it, and then uncover what happens as a result. LGBT+ and mature themes, though nothing explicit or graphic.
