Dream Anew gives us broad streets, sprawling vineyards, and high sun-kissed towers; voices raised in poignant, unearthly chorus; grave voices and whispered councils; deadly words and spells sung sharp as swords; artists prospering and medicine for all; dusty libraries and airy halls; and stark radiance and gathering gloom asking "What do you do next?"
It is a GMless game of utopian cosmopolitan fantasy about former mortals made anew by stray power from a secret cosmic war and working to keep it from consuming their city.
It is a game of belonging outside belonging using the "No Dice, No Masters" engine for 3-6 players, and should take between 3 and 4 hours per session. To play, you will need a printed copy of the game, scrap paper, pens and pencils, and coins to use as tokens.
