Dead Inside: The Roleplaying Game of Loss & Redemption
2004 People's Choice Award Winner (Indie RPG Awards)

Maybe you drove yourself beyond your limits, attempting to do the impossible. You succeeded -- but it was too late. Despite your heroic efforts, everything went to hell anyway... and it took part of you with it.

Maybe you've purposefully sold what makes you you to achieve your dreams of wealth, love, or power. Once the euphoria of success wore off, your victory tasted like ashes in your mouth.

Maybe everything has gone wrong since you lost your lucky charm, the railroad pocket-watch your grandfather gave you on his deathbed. The tick tick tick of that watch got you through many long nights of the soul -- and now it's missing, and with it, your peace of mind.

You've realized something terrible has happened: the scales have fallen from your eyes. At this moment, the world is strange, dreamlike, and mutable. Everything is in flux; anything is possible. You see the monsters and magi, sinners and saints, angels and demons who walk the streets with you. Rainbow rings beckon -- are they gates to heaven, hell, or limbo? You feel empty, hollow, cold, hurt. Perhaps you're mad. Perhaps you're saner than you've ever been before.

You're Dead Inside. What are you going to do about it?

Inside You Will Find:

  • A complete game system. The Prose Descriptive Qualities (PDQ) System has been designed for evocative simplicity, speed, and flexibility in play. Three levels of resolution, suitable for any type of situation.
  • An inventive setting. The Spirit World, where monsters and magi rub shoulders on the everchanging streets, where hopes war with fears, and every action taken is charged with value.
  • An immersive, different style of roleplaying. Experience a game where what your character does is almost less important than why your character does it.
  • Substantial advice and discussion. On all phases of RPGing, whether you participate as a player or as a GM.
