A downloadable game

All Things Under Heaven is an RPG about exploration, adventure, and discovery in an eerie world haunted by folklore and inspired by the culture of dynastic China and feudal Japan.

It is a Powered by the Apocalypse game for 1 GM and 2-4 players, that can be run as a one-shot, a short (4-8 session) season, or a longer (12+ session) campaign.

You play to find out what the characters discover on their journeys, how it changes them (and how they change it), and whether they remain mortal or become something more...

It is currently in PUBLIC PLAYTEST. It is made available not in exchange for money, but for a promise of feedback. You can find the feedback form here.

(All Things For Heaven concerns cultural themes & experiences other than my own. Getting the feedback of sensitivity readers is a priority, but the game presently has no budget and such feedback is work that rightly requires compensation. As a result the game has not yet been sensitivity read, but doing so is top of my priority list for further development).

Install instructions

All Things Under Heaven is made available in exchange for a commitment to provide playtesting feedback. This might be feedback from just reading the game, or from actual play (either as a participant or as a GM).

As a playtester, you have a few responsibilities:

  • Engage with the game, to whatever extent you want & can. If that's just reading it, awesome! If you play or run a oneshot, that's great. If you pull off a campaign, I'm gonna be delighted.
  • Fill out the playtest survey, found on the game page or hyperlinked in the How to Play doc. Please answer every question. 
  • Offer problems rather than solutions. If you encountered issues, explain your problem (and your workarounds) rather than giving advice or possible fixes.
