A downloadable business card setting

Buy Now$2.00 USD or more

There is a lake, and there is a town on this lake. It may have had a name once, but now it's known just as The Lake Town. It is lashed together, falling apart, and struggling. The people here make their living from the Lake, boats and canals are the primary modes of transportation. There are opportunities here, and secrets, for those willing to look.


Lake Town Blues is a system-agnostic setting on a business card. The game encourages you and your players to create the town, fill it with people, and then fill it with secrets. 

It was heavily inspired by The Hobbit, although it could be used in any setting that feels right. 


What you need to play: 

  • Blank Index cards
  • Pens and pencils
  • Hobby dice (at least 1 d4 per player and a selection for the GM).

I absolutely love this! I'm gonna reference it as a worldbuilding tool to complement some of my own games.

Oh, wow, thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed it. 

Would love to see and hear some stories of your Lake Towns!

That said, where can I download it? There is no link, u was basing my comment on the preview pics.

Ah, I misunderstood that. haha. 

I'll hit you up on Discord, if that's cool! (We're both in TTR)
