Dryads Wake — a game of uncertain choices and dialogue

I’ve been searching for good ways to build text-rpgs since writing my Python-Based TextRPG in 2008. With Dryads Wake I finally found a structure that I really like and that can be played from the browser as well as from the text-terminal.

Dryads Wake is a pure text-based game using the 1d6-rules. You can play an introductory chapter on dryads-wake.1w6.org.

Space Station Inhabitants

Random NPC generation with occupation and a keyword for portrayal, written for the 200 Word RPG Supplement Challenge 2016. Tailored for shady space stations. Also available as PDF.

Start with the first table. Roll one die. On a 5, move one column to the left. On a 6 move right. Never change direction or leave the table: Use row 5/6 instead. Else select the row for the number you rolled.

Go to the next table. Start with the row for the last number you rolled. Roll again. 5 moves up, 6 moves down, never turn around. The number gives the column. The last column is special: It never applies to the job in the row rolled in the first table.

3 Beggar Clerk Prostitute

±d6 in Guile Scheme

Just for fun: This implements the ±d6 in Guile Scheme, including critical rolls.

(define* (roll-1d6)
  (let* ((numbers '(-5 -3 -1 2 4 6))
          (lambda () (list-ref
                      (random 6)))))
    (let rolling ((rolled
                   (cons (rolld6) '())))
       ((and (= 1 (length rolled))
              (car rolled) '(-5 6)))
        (rolling (cons (rolld6) rolled)))
       ((and (> (length rolled) 1)
             (equal? (car rolled)
                     (car (cdr rolled))))
        (rolling (cons (rolld6) rolled)))
       ((= 1 (length rolled))
        (car rolled))
        (apply + (cdr rolled)))))))
