The Jester King is a malignant fool. 

A careless mistake wrought upon the world.

In hell they were given the title of Jester King for the entertainment they provided the demons as their corporeal form danced upon the material plane wreaking havoc with every thoughtless decision.

And now they awake here 
Forgotten of themself 
But a celebrity. 

But the entertainment must not stop. 

One last dance, as hell watches the jester king stumble to remember their deeds and perhaps, after an eternity of time, they may begin to repent

The Jester King's Dance is a solo journaling mystery game. That is explored by yourself by documenting in a notebook the tribulations of the Jester King and piecing together clues to uncover who they once were and their careless, evil deeds. 

You, dear player, are not the Jester King. You are not playing as them, but watching them and documenting their journey. Write more of their story after each step, dice roll, and card flip. You may hate and despise them after you complete the game. They may not deserve any absolution.

This is a dark, brutal game of uncovering the mystery of who they are and what terrible deeds surrounded them in life that earned them the title of the Jester King. However, you’re ultimately in control of where you want the story to go.  If you find yourself in too dark a place, or are no longer enjoying where the story is taking you, it’s okay to stop, rewind, and try something else, or walk away completely.

Number of Players: 1 (solo)
Type: Journaling game with prompts, locations, and dice
Required Materials: Book, journal, pencil, and set of dice (d4, d6, d8, d10, and d12).

During a Hints and Hijinx mystery you will visit locations, overcome events and complications with the help of your skills (or himbos!) and collect clues. At the end, you'll string together all your clues to form a hypothesis of what is really going on. Each clue you gather and use increases the final dice you roll to see how accurate you are. The more clues you collect, the more likely you have solved the mystery!
