Multiverse A game for 2, 4, or 6 players by Daniel Thoreson Multiverse is a game about discovering an alternate dimension, and meeting your other self. Rules: The players split into two groups: Heroes and Counterparts. Each group must have the same amount of players. Each Hero makes a character with three Traits: Background: How they grew up. Drive: What they want to do. Why they want to do it. Treasure: The thing or person they have that matters to them most. Each Counterpart chooses a Hero. When the Heroes enter a new dimension, the Counterparts play alternate versions of the Hero they’ve chosen. Gameplay: The session starts with an establishing scene where the Heroes find a portal to a different dimension. To decide which dimension, roll a d4: 1: Success. Each Counterpart has accomplished their Hero’s Drive. 2: Failure. Each Counterpart has failed or given up on achieving their Hero’s Drive. 3: New Past. Each Counterpart changes a key detail of their Hero’s Background. 4: Tragedy. Each Counterpart has lost their Hero’s Treasure. The Heroes and Counterparts roleplay a scene where they meet. Introduce a conflict based on the differences between these characters. Decide together on a resolution. Enjoy!
