The Manual of Gainful Employment
A downloadable animal crossing hack
A game to play when your d&d game ends or couldn't all meet that week. 1 or more players. gm-less (unless they want to play too).
The Manual of Gainful Employment is about building a town with your fantasy role playing friends if they decide they're tired of doing murder in horrible dungeons. It's about letting yourself be a part of a community, thinking about sacrifice and connection, and growing and changing over time.
Gameplay mostly involves asking each other (or yourself) questions, and sometimes rolling a 20-sided die. You don't need to have a character already made if you don't want. Works for any fantasy ttrpg but with specific focus on d&d's character archetypes.
