Tabletop Game: Golden Sky Stories
D'awwww

Heart-Warming Role-Playing

Golden Sky Stories is a heartwarming, non-violent Tabletop RPG from Ryo Kamiya and Tsugihagi Honpo. It is translated by Ewen Cluney. If this does not ring a bell, Ryo Kamiya is the one who brought us much weirdness in the form of Maid RPG and Nechronica.

While Golden Sky Stories has it's own share of strangeness, compared to the above works, it is much more tame in comparison. (In fact, it is recommended from 10 years and up.)

The players take on the roles of henge (pronounce: hen-gay), magical animals who live in a small town, helping the local residents solve their everyday problems. There is no over-arching quest to save the world and usually no fighting or anything that could be traditionally called a villain.

That does not mean that the stories would get boring. On the contrary, the honesty of the small everyday occurrences will touch your heart and reinvigorate your spirit.

It is pretty much Iyashikei in RPG form.

The English website can be found here.
