Feathered Adventures

Adventures inspired by your favorite avian childhood cartoons and comics!

We all were there: my uncle, who had begrudgingly financed the expedition but had the time of his life on top of the volcano; his brilliant employee, who had somehow managed to turn the plane doors into talking toasters (I couldn’t quite understand why); my three cousins, the most intelligent of our brood that no one listened to; and me, of course, currently upside-down in the hands of the Wooden God. Stealing this artefact had been a bad idea… I was afraid, yes, but I knew that the brood had my back! And I had a pressing concern on my mind: would there be enough strawberry ice cream for everyone when we’d get home this evening?

Feathered Adventures is a diceless tabletop roleplaying game in which you play anthropomorphic birds going on pulp adventures, trying to overcome their flaws to come out on top.

Characters are defined by answering a series of queries about them (for instance, what do they do when they get angry, or who is their best friend outside of the brood). They also each have a specific mechanic to ensure them a total success in their actions.

Each adventure type has its own progression rule, which ensures that each type of adventure feels differently both narratively and in terms of rhythm.

Apart from these two mechanical details, the rest of the game is almost entirely concerned with freeform narration! It can be played with or without a GM and requires 3 to 6 players, for short one-shots (1 to 2 hours) requiring very little preparation or slightly longer campaigns.
