Wishless is a roleplaying game set in a world where, once upon a time, every living person was given three wishes. Players portray wish-seekers called Hunters who’ve already used their wishes and are chasing down Leads on the existence of new and unused ones.
Players roll dice in Wishless to overcome obstacles, and situation-relevant skills and wishes increase the odds of their rolls.
Players can also intentionally decrease their odds by making plot wagers, assuring certain plot developments regardless of a roll’s success.
Wishless requires one player to take on the role of the Secretary, describing the world of the game and the impact Hunters have on it. They don’t need to do any preparation, but should be comfortable improvising story beats based on player suggestions. Wishless can also be played in a single sitting or over multiple game sessions to create a longer, campaign-style story.
