The Whispering Road, a Miyazaki-inspired RPG, up on Kickstarter

The Whispering Road is a new RPG that's up on Kickstarter that takes its inspiration from and allows you to recreate the popular movies of Miyazaki.


From the campaign:

How would you like to play through a Hayao Miyazaki movie with your friends? That's exactly the purpose of The Whispering Road, a tabletop role-playing game I built. It not only mimics the stories of Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli, it's also a simple story game that anyone 8 years old and up can play, not just traditional role-players.

I've already playtested the rules, so I know the game works. But this game deserves more than a plain PDF release. It deserves a beautiful, full-color art book.

To be clear: this is not a licensed Studio Ghibli game. It's an independent project inspired by Ghibli. No Studio Ghibli artwork or content is used in the game.
