About the adventure

Play a broken toy in a broken world! In this Threadbare adventure, you are a group of toys trying to find a safe place for your community to make its home. But the post-apocalyptic world is weird, dangerous, and build for long-gone creatures that are much bigger than you! Will you be able to find a safe place? And who is chasing you-- will they catch you? Threadbare is a Powered by the Apocalypse game with low-combat and high fun.

Additional Details

How to prepare

You'll need a microphone and preferably a webcam. Please have the character playbooks available, which you can download here: If we are playing in person, please bring 2 6-sided dice and a pencil or pen.

What I provide

If this is run online, I'll bring everything you'll need. If we are playing in person, I'll bring the playbooks (character sheets), handouts, and adventure. I usually bring extra dice as well if you need them.

Gameplay details

This game inherently has light body horror as a content warning. I use X Card, Script Change, and Lines and Veils to create a safer game for players.
