Tower & Town is a solo RPG about a rural wizard managing their time, making friends, and changing magical scholarship forever—while trying not to be driven out by an angry mob or lose research funding.

After years at the Mages’ College, you have finally completed your studies and acquired a tower of your own. What better use for your new arcane residence than pursuing a wizard’s favorite pastime: magical research! The College, of course, has high expectations and anticipates regular reports on your progress.

There is, however, a complication. Your new tower is far from the distractions of the city, but it’s only an hour’s walk from a small town very eager for your magical assistance. You may have plans to revolutionize magical science, but the townspeople are really more interested in your warding their chicken coops against thieving sprites.

Between the research in your tower and your work for the town, you’ll have your hands full. Can you keep the townspeople content and the College satisfied long enough to finish your research?

Version 1 includes all the rules you'll need to play. Currently in development are addons for: 2+ player variants, premade towns (with townsfolk, task inspiration, and research ideas), more Mages' College content, and an optional setting guide. A prototype tracking spreadsheet is available here (File > Make a Copy to use).
