"All stories, to be told, must have tellers, and all tellers have a unique perspective which colors their tale. Time here is less a flat circle than a Penrose Staircase."

Inscrutable Cities is a fabulist solo role-playing games about a traveler from a faraway land who has arrived within an impossible city, whose beauty and strangeness you seek to capture in your journal as you explore and travel through this magical metropolis. All you need to play is a journal, a pencil, and a coin to flip at the fork in the road. 

Inscrutable Cities is a love letter to the 1972 masterpiece Invisible Cities by Italo Calvino, and provides for the player the mechanisms needed to move through one of his titular invisible cities, to explore a world unbounded by time and space, to move from a mundane mode of storytelling into a fabulist one. Written by Julian K Jarboe, author of Lambda Award-winning short story collection Everyone on the Moon is Essential Personnel, and published by Possum Creek Games, the team behind Wanderhome and Yazeba's Bed & Breakfast, Inscrutable Cities is a must-have for wanderers, storytellers, and the dreamers among us.
