Travel the city roofs until they flow together, edge to edge; until the buildings and the lands below are lost.  Explore a moody, richly-painted realm, haunt of ghosts and monster-gods. Befriend the talking rats who adventure there, to protect our world below.

The Far Roofs RPG uses a 5d6 dice pool for standard actions, an innovative letter-tile-drawing and word-construction system for bigger-picture character growth and narrative progression, and an evolved and simplified version of story mechanics and powers developed for the Chuubo's Marvelous Wish-Granting Engine RPG. It includes an extensive, multi-year campaign for a GM and up to 6 players.

The Far Roofs will be released in a single volume as an 8.5"x11" book with a color cover, grayscale interior, and roughly 80# paper. An early stretch goal will add a dustjacket and bookmark ribbon. The game is written and laid out at 223 pages, including roughly 10 pages of interior art. A  late stretch goal (or smooth production process) may add an additional 2-10 page section of illustrations and concept art.
