Check out their website to learn more about their efforts and find mental health resources.

When/Where can I stream the game?

The game will be streamed on twitch.tv/Br00TalDAN on Saturday, May 29th at 11am PDT / 2pm EDT.

What is The Bonds That Tie Us?

The Bonds That Tie Us is a TTRPG about characters, and their relationships with each other; how they grow and how they fall apart. It is a GMless game, meaning that everyone shares the responsibilities that a Game Master would traditionally fill, like determining the outcome of character actions, and moving the story forward. This also means that it is a collaborative game; everyone works together, rather than against each other.

For this stream, the characters will all be attending the funeral of a loved one. In the future. On a spaceship.
