A Revolutionary RPG of Dice, Cards, and Imagination

Triptycho is a tabletop RPG that brings fresh and exciting ideas to the genre. Exploring intriguing locales and interacting with interesting characters both get as much focus, detail, and support in the gameplay as fighting. Deck-based character building makes the game easy to learn, engaging to play, and endlessly customizable.

Battle vicious monsters with your combat deck, traverse dangerous landscapes with your exploration deck, and talk your way out of serious trouble with your interaction deck. Work together as a team to face one of the greatest varieties of challenges to ever grace an RPG.

If you're a beginner, you'll pick up and play quickly and easily with pre-made decks. If you're a veteran of RPGs or collectable card games, you'll feel right at home customizing each of your decks to build precisely the character you want to play. Open narratives and strong improvisation support ensure that agency remains in the hands of the players.

Triptycho is an independent game currently in design and development. We're offering public playtests at certain conventions if you want a sneak-peek of the game in its current form. We listen carefully to all feedback and incorporate it into the next version of the game's evolution, so come and take part in the process!

Pardon Our Dust!

As with the game itself, the website for Triptycho is currently under development. For now we have this wiki containing the current draft of rules for the game.
