This is the SRD document for creating Wretched & Alone games.

The SRD is based on the Wretched, by Chris Bissette. The original game is available here.

Wretched & Alone games are solo journaling games about struggling in the face of insurmountable odds to survive, or to achieve something important.

The SRD is CC-BY3.0 and comes with additional permission to use the Wretched & Alone logo. It's available for free, but we obviously appreciate donations.

I emailed you a Google doc with additional suggested corrections on 7/8. Let me know if you'd like to discuss.


In the SRD v1.1, on Page 9 under Win Conditions, there is a typo: "the player's own hope...".

Thank you for making this document; very informative. 

Thansk for the spot. I'll get on it. 

Another typo in the same section (Win Conditions, pg 9), the last sentence in that section should "or alter the chances" instead of "or atler the chances" This is a great document, though, and I'm glad you made it!
