POWERED by the DREAMR is a full Powered by the Apocalypse tabletop roleplaying game in a zine, and it’s live on Kickstarter. In POWERED by the DREAMR, you are a Dreamr who possesses limitless powers within other’s dreams. Until you wake, you travel between the subconscious of sleepers, living out their dreams, searching out their secrets, or battling nightmares. Set in a dream state you and your friends collaborate on, this game maximizes the narrative rules to give each dream a surreal quality. As you navigate an ever-evolving universe of dream logic, your Moves will lead to success, reveal hidden truths, result in laughter, or unleash your character’s nightmares.

Using a variant of the Powered by the Apocalypse phenomenon (originally seen in Apocalypse World as well as Monsterhearts 2, Dungeon World, and more), this game keeps dreams vibrant and varied via random questions that alter the fantasy or reveal a characters personal demons. You decide the dream objectives you must complete before the sleeper wakes. Will you combat a supernatural killer? Steal secrets? Defend the sleeper from dream thieves? Inspire a life altering dream epiphany? Live out your fantasy life? Or something wholly original?

As part of Kickstarter’s February initiative, Zine Quest, this project is the solo debut tabletop roleplaying game by RPG journalist, Egg Embry (Knights of the Dinner Table, EN World, Open Gaming Network, Tessera Guild). Available to backers as a PDF for just $5 or $12 for the print zine and PDF. Making an RPG via Kickstarter is his dream manifest and you can share in that fantasy by checking out the POWERED by the DREAMR Kickstarter at: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/eggembry/powered-by-the...



POWERED by the DREAMR by Egg Embry uses a variant of the Powered by the Apocalypse system. A full RPG in a zine that lets you live out other’s dreams or combat nightmares, it’s available through Kickstarter’s Zine Quest.

Dan Davenport of #randomworlds asked me to to a chat Q&A February 15th (Friday night starting at 8:30 PM EST). I'm excited to talk about my solo Powered by the Apocalypse zine, POWERED by the DREAMR, and I'm happy to answer questions on the zine I'm creating with John McGuire and Leland Beauchamp, Love's Labour's Liberated for 5e.

To join the chat on 02/15/2019 at 8:30 PM EST: https://tinyurl.com/randomworlds-chat

In the latest update for POWERED by the DREAMR, I talk about my nightmare, the one that helped me define what I want of PbtD. As well, I look at RPG zines like:

- CASKET LAND by Marie Enger (A PbtA zine)
- Love Letters from the Baker House Band by Meguey Baker and the Baker House Band (The family that gave us PbtA)
- The Fan Favorite: A Masks RPG Zine by Linda H. Codega (A PbtA/Masks zine)
