A Brief Study on The Others is a riff on a game I'm developing, about people of magic forced to deal with an abominations infestation, while keeping their patrons and the populace happy. This game is an experiment in feature compression, i.e. how much of the original idea can I stuff into a one-move micro game? In the end, I had to cheat a bit, a infuse a little of OSR philosophy into the part not governed by the move, that is, the non-magical stuff.

The game includes evocative setting prose, principles for the Game Master and the Playing Characters, and three playbooks, for the Scholar, the Shaman, and the Psychopomp. It was created for the #YourMoveJam

For the price asked, you get the full pdf, a printer friendly version, booklet form (in full and printer friendly formats), and when I finish it, a spanish translation (in full and printer friendly format).
