The Story 📖

In this TTRPG you can play all around your actual house, the Gatherers are tiny folk that live among us, in the walls, roofs and beneath your floorboards. They gather things from us humans, who they call Giants and fear above all else. Gatherers live lives of constant hiding; however, they have a rich culture of clans, kingdoms and even empires for you to explore. 

When you sit down to play a session of The Gatherers with your gaming group, you will teleport to the world of the small under the guidance of your Game Master (GM). 

You will choose a goal for each session and then take your characters on an adventure to achieve that goal. You’ll build homes around your house and relationships with the other Gatherers and sentient animals that live nearby or even in your territory. 

The lives of the small are full of challenge and adventure! Welcome to the world of The Gatherers, where your tiniest dreams come true.

“This journey begins in your very own home. In this unique RPG you are encouraged to use your physical environment as inspiration for your story-telling as you explore your world from a tiny perspective. 
A lazy house cat suddenly becomes a deadly beast intent on hunting you. A coat hanger becomes a glider. Will you plot against the "giants" or befriend them? The options are endless and the world really is your oyster in this game. 

"As a player of a Gatherer, your job is to breathe life into the character you've created." 

You'll begin by creating a character and their origins and then adventure forth and design their destiny! 
The Gatherers guide provides instructions for point and play or physical play as you work within your Clans to help your Gatherers to survive and thrive in the giant's world!

"The lives of the small are full of challenge and adventure!" 

I don't have a lot of experience with Role Play Games, but after taking a sneak peak at the guide for The Gatherers and getting that sweet nostalgic kick from my years growing up on The Borrowers and Arrietty, I feel like it's a world I'd be ready to shrink down to explore! “

"I love the idea of creating an adventure that takes place right inside of my house. This concept really stirs my imagination and I am so excited to try this game!"

"It has a very unique setting where you create your own character that is tiny enough to live in your cupboards, garden,  walls, and more.  Your environment is the actual world around you and can be variable to where you play the RPG. 

I really like that your own physical environment can affect your gameplay and that the resources that affect your characters can change based on what is in the room.  

As I read through the story and rules,  I also really appreciated the examples and definitions that went with the storyline.  I thought this was a great addition to help players understand the new world and basics of RPGs."

The Cardboard Paradise

"An awesome concept that I could see myself playing in different locations, to really see what adventures the different environments give these characters. If you were a fan of the Borrower's movie back in 1997, then you are going to adore 'The Gatherers'. I just love that fact that I'll be able to create a world right around the contents of my living room or kitchen. Can't wait to get stuck in!"

"The Half-Monster guys present us a fantasy world that hides in plain sight, where everything around us can become part of the journey. They submerge us in this adventure of being a Gatherer through lovely art that reflects the love and commitment they pour into each of their projects.."
