Welcome to Quill: A Letter-Writing Roleplaying Game for a Single Player. In Quill you will write real letters, with the aim to craft the most sublime missives in order to elicit and favourable response from the recipient. Whether asking a friend to appraise an art piece, offering condolences for a lost child, or sending a warning that the king’s life is in danger; using the Ink Pot, a d6 and the scenarios within you will use luck and guile to score points at the end of your letter. Become a monk, poet, scholar and more in the pursuit of the perfect letter.
If you’ve ever wanted an excuse to write a letter to Archduke Godfrey to inform him of his sister’s death from consumption, well, this is the game for you!
Quill is a solo game about writing letters, where your writings are not merely a record of your game actions, but the actions themselves. Unusually, Quill is a scored solo game rather than a strictly prompt driven one. How well you are able to achieve the writing goals of the scenario using the unique traits of your character determines the result of your letter.
