The Whispering Road is a storytelling game of cooperation and exploration, inspired by the films of Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli.

The system uses d6's and d8's to tell a Hero's Journey about people who are spirited away to a strange world, find allies and face antagonists, and at the end, may (or may not) return home. The rules explicitly reward cooperation and selflessness.

Your character is made of three things:

An Archetype (Ordinary Hero, Special One, Mentor, or Rascal)
A strong Need that's regularly thwarted by another character (such as “I want to turn back into a young woman, but the wizard keeps giving me other things to do”)
A set of character Traits (such as “Everybody's Friend”, “Amazing Durability”, “Power of Flight”).
Conflicts are always framed in terms of which characters' needs are in jeopardy. You then play your traits to get dice, which you roll to try to satisfy needs. What you roll is added to your good karma if it satisfies another characters' need, or your bad karma if it satisfies your own need.
