POWERED by the DREAMR, a Powered by the Apocalypse tabletop roleplaying game in a zine, is available now through DriveThruRPG and Itch.io.
In POWERED by the DREAMR, you are a Dreamr who possesses limitless powers within other’s dreams. Until you wake, you travel between the subconscious of sleepers, living out their dreams, searching out their secrets, or battling nightmares. Set in a dream state you and your friends collaborate on, this game maximizes the narrative rules to give each dream a surreal quality. As you navigate an ever-evolving universe of dream logic, your Moves will lead to success, reveal hidden truths, result in laughter, or unleash your character’s nightmares.
Created as part of Kickstarter’s initiative, Zine Quest, this project is the solo debut tabletop roleplaying game by RPG journalist, Egg Embry (Knights of the Dinner Table, EN World, Open Gaming Network, Tessera Guild). Using a variant of the Powered by the Apocalypse phenomenon (originally seen in Apocalypse World as well as Monsterhearts 2, Dungeon World, and more), this game keeps dreams vibrant and varied via random questions that alter the fantasy or reveal a character’s personal demons. You decide the dream objectives you must complete before the sleepr wakes. Will you combat a supernatural killer? Steal secrets? Defend the sleepr from dream thieves? Inspire a life-altering dream epiphany? Live out your fantasy life? Or something wholly original? The options are yours, Dreamr.
