A unique blend of hexcrawling and storygame. You play powerful people who jump off floating islands and go... down. It has a very simple explore, survive and return premise. But it's built on a very interesting setting about people who are hurt going to the extreme to feel alive and help others. Really looking forward to trying this!
A downloadable TTRPG
Welcome to Stratus Cay.
Stratus Cay is a floating city in the Rift, a digital quantum dimension at the intersection of the smallest black hole in the multiverse and the concept of becoming. The city is made of countless islands, a hyperreal archipelago adrift in flashing interdimensional lights. An infinite smattering of lives, as varied and precious as the stars themselves.
You are a hyperpowered being who came into larger-than-life abilities because of a profound cataclysm. Heartbreak. Grief. The depths. Physical, emotional, multidimensional–something unlocked incredible power in you. People like you have many names across Stratus Cay, but the most common is “Diver,” a nickname derived from their affinity for falling through the Rift, either on dangerous jobs or just for fun.
Divers’ abilities run the gamut of even the wildest imaginations, and their extreme power and durability makes many of them reckless thrillseekers. The pay is too good and the thrills too extraordinary to turn down the opportunity to go on a dive.
What will you do, falling soul?

I LOVE THIS. I love the flavor. I love the layout. I love the amazing pixel art! I can't wait for the sample maps and hooks! How dare you call me out in the downtime activities!
Seriously, this is so cool and unique. I can't wait to see how far you take this. Expansions to the Rift when?
