Restless: Holiday Palette

Restless: A Very Special Holiday Horror

This is a palette for J. Walton‘s game Restless (PDF). This palette is, in essence, a pre-defined apocalypse to use to tell your stories.

3106128994_94dc2c576e_zNon-Survivors: The non-survivors are Santa’s Elves, driven mad with obsessive toy-making. They have broken free of the Workshop, overthrown their tyrannical master, and are now turning all the boys and girls of the world into toys. The  adults are gone– turned into Elves or just “disappeared.” The Elves are sweeping the world to turn every child into a toy. Their legions of marching toy soldiers and dolls who wet themselves are growing.

Survivors: All survivors are children, lost in a world where the adults have disappeared or turned against them.

When starting a card, choose a thing you might carry:

    • A baseball and bat
    • A box of art supplies
    • Enough blankets to make a blanket fort
    • A Swiss army knife
    • A doll… who did it used to be?
    • A storybook
    • Three pieces of clothing, all hand-me-downs.

Using these constraints, play Restless as normal, with the survivors and non-survivors building a story along with each card drawn at random.
