A downloadable supplement

Download NowName your own price

Catastrophe is a lightweight pamphlet supplement that seeks to model character psychology and dramatic arcs in TTRPGs. (It's more fun than it sounds, I swear!) Catastrophe should run underneath/alongside most games - it uses simple lists, six-sided dice, and the assumption that in a climactic moment, characters are faced with the truth of who they are. Whether they accept that truth, or reject it, defines whether their story results in a transformation (comedy) or a catastrophe (tragedy)!

Use it as much or as little as you like - I'd love to hear how it plays. There's a version for printing and folding, a single page version for printing and sticking in a notebook, and a version for easier left-to-right reading on a computer.

In progress: a simple character sheet.
