A downloadable game

Buy Now$2.50 USD or more

You are a traveller in a weird and wonderful (and discomfiting and slightly uncomfortable world) - and you have a odd and uncanny tale to tell (whether it be a scathingly bad review of a tour or an unfortunate brush with the numinous).

In the scramble for something (anything!) to jot down your experiences, you find the good old 45c postcard. Perhaps you are just saving this to write up properly later or maybe you feel the folks at home will offer more sympathy for your travails, either way this little piece of card with a cute scenery photo on it is your medium. 

Tall Tales & Alien Skies is a journaling rpg that is intended for solo play but can be played in small-group format (where everyone chips in to answer the questions with as zany an answer as they prefer).

Made for the Wish You Were Here postcard jam by ACGodliman, you play a traveller writing up their experiences (good, ill or odd) on a postcard for posterity. 

May it invoke those quirky spontaneous instances that bless and plague all our holidays. 

(Please note that the rpg file contains 3 variant designs, with the 2nd and 3rd being intended to accommodate sending the game like a postcard via mail as the 1st might not be mailable that way)

Hi there. I just purchased the game and I have a question about how to play it. What does the instruction "roll on the tables to generate prompts for your story" mean? Does it have to do with the "Avid locations", "Jeopardy Customs" and "cthonic customs" ?

Thank you for purchasing the game - and yes, you are right, those are the tables (I had intended them to mimic post office stamps). The intention was that the player choose whichever table to roll on that they found fun/interesting.
