WELCOME TO NIGHT VALE - THE TABLETOP ROLE-PLAYING GAME!

It’s finally finished! Click here to download a PDF of the Welcome to Night Vale role-playing game, which I wrote and which ten artists provided illustrations for. If you missed your copy at Norwescon, you can still possess this mysterious artifact!

This game uses a simple 2d6 system: even if you’ve never done tabletop role-playing before, it will take mere minutes to learn, and all you need are a couple friends and two regular old six-sided dice.

Be warned that this game has NOT been play-tested — whether or not playing it causes stars to appear (or disappear) in the night sky, or its effect on the nervous systems of household pets in its vicinity, is still unknown.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU to my contributing artists, all of whom created original pieces in exchange for nothing but the satisfaction of a job weirdly done: monstersanosa, moriartylaughingalonewithcrown, zenamiarts, pizza-soup, strexiest, themonsterghost, goddess-in-green, idontevenknow-anymore, astrogyaru, and female—president. Even if you don’t do tabletop gaming, download this PDF for the AMAZING illustrations. :D

Feedback can be directed towards our various and sundry Ask boxes. Please let the artists know how much you appreciate their work!

I did art for this! The system seems incredibly fun and I can’t wait to try it out with my group over the summer~!! You all should check it out! :D

This looks kinda fun!

It seems like a super simple system almost purely role playing, no d&d type combat. I’ve never played a game like that before.

I wish I could GM a game, but since I would be so inexperienced with the game type, I’m not sure I’d have the know how.

Maybe I’ll try anyways, if I find people to play with.

  • student:

    hey government can I have some money to go to university

  • uk government:

    sure here you go. you'll have to pay it back but only when you're earning £21,000+ a year, and if you don't pay it off after 30 years we'll just write it off, don't worry about it man

  • scottish government:

    nah man just go to uni we ain't gonna charge you

  • us government:

    no. you gotta pay it yourself. upfront. your parents have to save up from the moment you're born. good luck, fucker. you have six months after graduating to start paying loans so you better pray to fucking god and jesus that you have a well-paying job by then or be prepared to be fucked up the ass without lube.

how do cats even work

Cats:

  • A cat can jump up to five times its own height in a single bound.
  • The little tufts of hair in a cat’s ear that help keep out dirt direct sounds into the ear, and insulate the ears are called “ear furnishings.”
  • The ability of a cat to find its way home is called “psi-traveling.” Experts think cats either use the angle of the sunlight to find their way or that cats have magnetized cells in their brains that act as compasses.
  • One reason that kittens sleep so much is because a growth hormone is released only during sleep.
  • A cat has 230 bones in its body. A human has 206. A cat has no collarbone, so it can fit through any opening the size of its head.
  • A cat’s nose pad is ridged with a unique pattern, just like the fingerprint of a human.
  • If they have ample water, cats can tolerate temperatures up to 133 °F.
  • A cat’s heart beats nearly twice as fast as a human heart, at 110 to 140 beats a minute.
  •  Cats don’t have sweat glands over their bodies like humans do. Instead, they sweat only through their paws.
  • The claws on the cat’s back paws aren’t as sharp as the claws on the front paws because the claws in the back don’t retract and, consequently, become worn.
  • Cats make about 100 different sounds. Dogs make only about 10.
  • Researchers are unsure exactly how a cat purrs. Most veterinarians believe that a cat purrs by vibrating vocal folds deep in the throat. To do this, a muscle in the larynx opens and closes the air passage about 25 times per second.
  • A cat almost never meows at another cat, mostly just humans. Cats typically will spit, purr, and hiss at other cats.
  • A cat’s back is extremely flexible because it has up to 53 loosely fitting vertebrae. Humans only have 34.
  • Some cats have survived falls of over 65 feet (20 meters), due largely to their “righting reflex.” The eyes and balance organs in the inner ear tell it where it is in space so the cat can land on its feet. Even cats without a tail have this ability.
  • A cat can travel at a top speed of approximately 31 mph (49 km) over a short distance.
  • A cat’s hearing is better than a dog’s. And a cat can hear high-frequency sounds up to two octaves higher than a human.
  • A cat’s brain is biologically more similar to a human brain than it is to a dog’s. Both humans and cats have identical regions in their brains that are responsible for emotions.

And that’s how cats work.

This is my new fav post
