Adorablins is a super cute and easy-to-learn storytelling game where you and your friends play as little Goblin-like creatures going on adventures in an endless variety of places. Everything you need to play is in a portable mint tin box that fits right in your pocket!

 

Adorablins is inspired by the Powered by the Apocalypse system used by tabletop RPGs like Apocalypse World, Monster Hearts, Apocalypse Keys, and Avatar Legends. It uses a simplified version of that system to let create and experience your own Adorablin adventures. You’ll choose a character to play as by picking an Adorablin card, then choose the adorable companion who will accompany them on their quest through a magical portal. 

 

As players try to overcome challenges or do something risky, the Narrator will call for a dice roll to see how it goes. The player describes what they are trying to do and chooses a skill that best fits their action, then they roll the dice to see how it goes!

 

Sessions tend to last between 30 minutes to a few hours and can easily be made to fit whatever time you have to fill. Dinner will be ready in twenty minutes? Grab Adorablins and play a quick game!
