Walking Near Lanterns

is an explorative pointcrawl built on moments of nostalgia, intimacy and wonderment from childhood festivals and holidays. It's a game about remembering the warm summer air, the cries of children laughing and buzzing lights. To play it, all you need are some six-sided dice and writing tools.

Walking Near Lanterns comes in three A5 pages, featuring:

  • Rules-lite dice-driven pointcrawl generation with easy-to-understand rules.
  • Over 40 unique festival prompts and encounters to inspire and create. Join a wrestling match, talk to strange fortune tellers, enter a haiku battle and more!
  • Fast worldbuilding questions to let you and your players flesh out the world around the festival.

Roll some dice, go to the festival and enjoy what memories await!

This supplement is pretty incredible! You can drop it into many different games and settings, and its mechanics and prompts are both minimal and evocative.
