Here I stand, in my beat-up apartment with its wonky chair and threadbare rug, clutching this old book like it’s alive and dangerous. Everybody’s going about their day outside my window without a care in the world, but my world has been turned upside down. How did they know where to find me?

The Almanac of Sanguine Paths is a GM-less letter-writing and journaling game for 1-2 players. Choose your genre, build your world, and discover the joys of corresponding as a werewolf via a secret society with unknown motives. This game can be used alone or in conjunction with Dead Letter Society (Honorable Mention, 2023 Indie Groundbreaker Awards).

Your Almanac may be an old book filled with information about the phase of the moon and the tides, a newsletter that keeps escaping your junk mail filter, or an indie gaming zine thrust into your hands one day. No matter its format, the origin of this benign text is unknown to you for now. Once in your hands, however, you begin to notice oddities: Pages glisten in moonlight; a sound mimics your favourite bird call; pictures move when you're not looking. You can’t discard the Almanac for long; it always comes back to you.

You are sure there's more to uncover—either about the book or the person(s) who sent it to you—but you'll need help. The first hidden message you discover tells you how to contact other werewolves with an Almanac: securely, secretly, and—if you choose—anonymously. Together, you can find out what it means to walk the Sanguine Paths.

A thought provoking, mysterious epistolary game that inspires the imagination like the full moon inspires a good, long howl. – @gothHoblin
The Almanac of Sanguine Paths is a journaling game unlike any other. Endless options exist for the creation and exploration of both inner and outer worlds as you face the shadows of your past and present, and exchange experiences that help you define who and what you are. And what you are—is a werewolf. – @SkaldofShenan
This is an incredibly thoughtful game, the fact that it is letter based gives you time to think and ruminate, making interactions incredibly personal and thoughtful. – Therizinosaurus Cheloniformis (Aarush Bhatt)
