The Missive is a post-apocalyptic game of hope and rebuilding tempered by the limits of humanity and their best intentions.

The Chamber of Dreams will give humanity the opportunity to create a new world, a paradise that can provide the living space and natural resources that a recovering post-cataclysmic population desperately needs.

However, not everyone agrees that the chamber offers a way to a better life. The first explorers will need to create the Missive, a shared explanation of the simulacrum-world that will provide stability and order.

Intended as a beginner-friendly game that blends simple roleplaying game mechanics with many of the conceits of a storytelling game like Mafia/Werewolf. Intrigue is optional, but even with intrigue the general goal is still to create an interesting world rather than competing with other players.

The game will be free for the extent of the Coronavirus outbreak, then be adjusted to a $1 price, and was created for the Quarantine Game Jam.

Requirements: 3+ players, a single 10-sided die. Secret messaging mechanic intended for use with internet chat software, virtual tabletops, or text messages. Physical notes are also able to be used for in-person sessions.
