What is this game?

The Outcast is a solo RPG about reputation and redemption. Your character has been ostracized by a community they were once part of because of a mistake they say you made. You embark on a lonely journey fulfilling missions to try and restore your reputation.

The game provides a unique setting generator that allows you to create a custom world for your gameplay in just a couple of dice rolls. 

With a tailored, lightweight system, the gameplay is focused on building up narrative and leverage so that, in the final scene, you can confront the accusations, and maybe redeem yourself from your alleged mistakes.

The game also comes with three oracles and three generators to assist solo play and push your narrative forward in surprising and exciting directions (easily portable to other games as well).

>> You can now also order a print version here!



Highlights

  • SETTING GENERATOR: Roll a couple of dice a few times and you have a completely new setting! Every playthrough is unique!
  • RULES-LIGHT: A single dice roll powers all mechanics in the game, so you get to play in no time
  • ORACLES AND GENERATORS: Spark your imagination with 3 unique Oracles and 3 generators to aid your solo play

We've come to the last episode of my solo play through of The Outcast. What a ride! In case you missed it, you can see the episodes leading up to this on this playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLxegXw4U07cmRAJY0A3Rq4AvFs5dBlbkM

But without further a-due, here is the finale episode:

What a great system Cezar has designed in The Outcast. You should definitely pick up a copy if you haven't already.

I appreciate your comments and your taking the time to explore the system!

That ending was a real plot twist! I don't want to spoil it, so if you're reading this, you should definitely check it out!

Those surprising elements and the word list oracle (Oracle 3) are great tools to keep a solo player on their toes. They generate great moments like that, and take your game in unexpected directions.

Yeah, for sure! 

Tomorrow I'll post some news about that, I hope it can help even more players do the same in their games!

In session 3, my playthrough is heating up, and getting weirder. I'm having so much fun with this game.

That was a fantastic episode!

Thanks. I had a lot of fun with this one. I like weird twists, and I like the way that The Outcast prompts you to add “surprising elements”.

I kept it going. Here's part 2 of my play through of The Outcast.

I had such a blast playing The Outcast. So why not share it here? If you're on the fence about the game, go ahead and give it a try. It's an excellent addition to your ttrpg collection, and a ton of fun to play.

Here is part 1 of my playthrough of The Outcast:

I'm a fan of Cezar's work, and this one is no different. Have you seen the work of Cezar Capacle? The Outcast is a solo game by this designer that puts you in the shoes of someone fallen from grace, ostracized from their community and seeking redemption. It features simple to follow mechanics streamlined to drive you towards a final high stakes scene.

Thank you so much for this, very well done! I'll be sharing it on Twitter, do you have an account there I can tag?

sure thing. @instadeathpod
