The Rain Reader TTRPG is an entirely custom built system, designed to encourage creativity and solemn ridiculousness in a world void of destiny.

Based off the comics and games of the same name, the chaotic realm of Rein is now fully playable as an independent tabletop roleplaying experience. In this dark cartoon world all life is born from the light of the Moon, and must survive by consuming coagulations of that light which meld into Cheese. Although the Moonborne take many shapes, they are all united and divided by their need to survive.

Complete with fifty one pages of rules, mechanics, possibilities and world building, this game features:

- Nine core attributes, which are utilized with simple dice rolling mechanics that only require a single six sided die. These attributes quantify everything from mental abilities, physical ability, worldly knowledge and magical aptitude.

- Eight different kinds of playable Moonborne each with four distinct traits.

- Thirteen vocations which give Moonborne access to new capabilities such as brewing magical elixirs, forging custom gadgets, creating magical followers from wax and preparing nutritious meals for their allies.

- No combat! Intense disagreements are settled by playing Moon Masters, a card game in which opponents tactically pose challenges to each other.

- A fully fleshed out cartoon world driven by innovation and absurdity. Built over the course of several comics and three games; whispers from the skyLiE oR DiE and rain reader.

- Three different eras of history in which adventures can occur. From the early establishment of Moonborne settlements, to their monopolization by the genocidal Yellow Barony and the rush of bountiful progress that followed the Barony's collapse.

- Nine hand drawn backgrounds for setting the atmosphere, a hand drawn character sheet, an illustrated summary introduction to each kind of Moonborne, twenty four character silhouettes for use as digital tokens along with a printable graphic of each Moon Masters card are all included.
