Wanderhome is a pastoral fantasy role-playing game about traveling animal-folk, the world they inhabit, and the way the seasons change. We play travelers — animal-folk who go from village to village and get to see the length and breadth of all the world of Hæth. Each player will make a character with the help of one of fifteen possible playbooks, making choices about their personality, animal-form, look, and passions. Each of these playbooks give you a radically different approach both to navigating the setting and growing over time. Once you’ve created your character, you and your fellow travelers guide them through the dreamlike pastoral world of Hæth.
You can inconvenience yourself or step outside your comfort zone in order to get tokens, and then turn around and spend those tokens to tackle larger problems and help make the world a better, kinder space.
Built on the Belonging Outside Belonging engine — there’s no dice, no math, no Game Masters, and no complicated rules. It’s all about getting you into the game as smoothly as possible, and filling your imagination with richly developed worlds and evocative text.
