Description

Wishless is a roleplaying game set in a world where, once upon a time, every living person was given three wishes. Players portray wish-seekers called Hunters who’ve already used their wishes and are chasing down Leads on the existence of new and unused ones.

Absurdist, slice-of-life fantasy is such a great genre. Cool, there’s magic! But everyone still has to go to work! Wishless is set in a universe in which Secretaries dispatch investigative Hunters to various Leads. Do your job, help consolidate the power humans have been gifted.

Wishless uses a straightforward system where players employ skills to overcome obstacles, and wishes can boost the odds of success. However, players can also intentionally decrease a roll’s odds with ‘plot wagers’ in order to guarantee certain events regardless of the roll’s results.

Wishless is one of six titles in Possible Worlds Games’ genre collection of mini-games, each bound like a color-coordinated mini spiral notepad. Designed to be quick to learn and low prep, but with enough depth you’ll never tell the same story twice.
