The Gloaming Diaries

The Gloaming Diaries is a tabletop roleplaying game of modern fairy tales in small towns by Kyle Weems. As a player, you take on the role of the gloamspun, half-human, half-fae beings created when a fairy fleeing eternal war encounters a human seeking change within the Wood. Needing one another, they weave their souls together, becoming one. Among your fellow gloamspun what unfolds next is a new story. For you have two pasts, but only one future.

What Brought You To The Wood?

Play as one of 10 Paths, each of which describes the human you were and the path that led you to that fateful twilight meeting, and one of 10 Tales, each of which describes the fae you were and the story your magical life told. Were you an Elder entering the woods to die who instead found a new life with a Tale of Mischief? Were you a Lover who slipped into the woods for a tryst and found yourself drawn to join souls with a Tale of Sorrow?

Small Town Fairies

Use the supernatural blessings of your Tale and the elemental magic of the fae to solve your town's problems without alerting your neighbors. Design the two Retinues of your fairy ilk with your fellow players and decide upon the nature of your Beloved Monarchs who forever love and feud with one another. Keep your shroud tightly bound around your soul to hide your fae nature, yet learn to deceive your neighbors while never speaking lies.

What stories will you tell in your small town at the edge of the woods? For although everyone's a little strange in remote parts, few are as strange as you.
