The Oracle

I’m pleased to announce that a new game is up on the website. The Oracle is a small RPG in which the players take on the role of priests trying to interpret a prophecy for the king. The prophecy is almost gibberish, but the priests are not only motivated by the tenets of their faith but also their political views, each trying to influence the king.

I wrote The Oracle as a self-imposed challenge to create a game driven by selecting random lines from a book. Any book. The cynical idea to make players corrupt priests came later. I invite the players to modify or abandon the setting if they have a different, more exciting idea – let me know how it went.
