The (Orc) Pope is Dead

Terrible news: the Pope is dead. Wanna be the new Pope?


Suggested Price: $2.54


A one-page roleplaying game in which you are an orc cleric attempting to find and/or become the new Pope after the last one died during a drinking binge.

  • Six orc cults to devote yourself to
  • Ten miracles of Bog-Al-Kurruk
  • Four clearly villainous rival Popes
  • A fun dice system with bonuses for critical failures
  • Rules more suited to a drinking game than a roleplaying game

One page games?

HERE’S THE DEAL: I write one tabletop or live roleplaying game a month. It will be no bigger than one side of A4 paper (that’s one side of letter paper, for you American types) and I will do all the art, layout and design myself in pen.

My games are, in general: short, punchy, well-written and exciting. Over the last six years of writing I’ve become more serious and less silly, so expect to see a mix of tones ranging from introspective and heart-breaking to daft and explosive. I’ll always strive to innovate and offer something original or surprising in each game.
