Lost Roads + PDF

Humans, once rich with magic, technology, and resources, exploited nature to collapse. Barren and twisted landscapes are the norm, with pockets of civilization connected by defunct, reclaimed pathways. 

Lost Roads is a journey role-playing game set in an alternate fantasy world.  Players become Tarnished characters, traveling the Lost Roads to find a home. Wield the magic of nature, bear the scars of survival, carry the fire of shared humanity, and risk betrayal from those you have no choice but to trust. Do you have the resolve needed to carry your loved ones through the Storm?

This game contains:

  • A highly modular game system, featuring an elegant D6 die pool resolution system with varying degrees of success and failure.
  • It can be run as a one shot or a short campaign lasting 2-5 sessions, with high replayability. Play cycles fluidly through several phases with a push and pull between survival, sheltering, and moving on to new places. 
  • Choose a unique starting character Role and combine it with one of eight magical Domains for up to 40 unique combinations.
  • Create a fantastic world together with flow and balance between human and natural communities. Then, play out tense survival stories of eco-migrants and supernatural climate fiction.
  • When characters take refuge, simple scene-by-turn rules allows them to steal a moment to share a meal, a story, a dream. Then, go forth once more to see if you can edge closer towards finding a home.
  • Inspired by The Road, A Quiet Place, Annihilation, Fast Color, and similar stories.
  • 60 page rulebook, play aids, and character sheets.

“Lost Roads is a love letter to a world on the brink of ruin, bound up with hope and horror. Play to see what heroism looks like on the other side of disaster.”

We care about the product getting to you safe and secure.  





    USPS Priority, UPS, and DHL

    • Takes 2-4 Business days, usually
    • Tracking included
    • All items in store are available to be shipped using these methods

    Please note that ALL SALES ARE FINAL. Shipments are sent via DHL. Shipping does not include customs fees, which are subject to each countries' tax requirement. We want you to buy with confidence but please understand that once the items leave the USA we will not be responsible for lost or damaged items unless you contact us to get additional insurance if available. 



    If your shipment is returned to us due to insufficient address or marked as undeliverable for any reason, we will need to collect another shipping fee in order to resend your item. 

    If you request an item to be returned (excluding damaged or incorrect items) then you will be responsible for the return shipping fee. 


    Only orders that contain items that are in stock at the time of ordering will be combined, when possible. 


    Essentially it is the same as above. We adore all of you and strive to give you the best possible customer experience possible but inventory tracking not only for us but for our vendors and partners makes this almost impossible to do now. 


    Pre-order dates are subject to change. We get as frustrated as you do when things come up but this happens from time to time. Sometimes circumstances beyond our control will create delays. We try to communicate via social media and our weekly newsletter to keep everyone as up to date as possible. 

    All items in an order containing pre-orders will ship with the pre-order item once it is in stock. If you would like the other items earlier, please place a seperate order from the one containing the pre-order. 

    We cannot combine pre-orders with existing orders nor combine new orders with existing pre-orders. 

    Pre-orders will be exempt from any type of general sale.
