Happy 2023! New Year, New Imaginings

Hello everyone! It’s been a while since our last updates. We hope you’ve been well! We’ve been adapting to life in the pandemic, and it’s been an ongoing struggle for so many of us… but well, new year, new possibilities, new hopes! We wish you the best of health in 2023, and would like to share alittle about some of the new undertakings we’re working on.


You might have heard of the dungeon-design exercise for 2023, #dungeon23 (and its adjacent hashtags, #city23, #tarot23, #setting23, and so on). For those of you who hadn’t… here’s an article by Linda Codega at Gizmodo: https://gizmodo.com/dungeon23-2023-ttrpg-writing-challenge-roleplaying-game-1849930262

The Chimeras will be doing a #setting23 exercise this year, to build and update Saintrest, our SEAsian-inspired fantasy setting. We’ll be posting some of our notebook sketches and scrawlings for #setting23 here on our website, to share our creative processes and hopefully provide some no-pressure encouragement to create now and again for the rest of this year.

Workshops and Other Events

Last year, in 2022, we collaborated with other heritage, creative and art groups locally – the National Heritage Board, the Arts House, Singapore Writers Festival, and Singapore Book Council, etc – to produce some games, workshops, and other events (both offline and online) for the general public. (One of the many highlights for us were meeting and working with fellow #RPGSEA creator Joaquin Saavendra, creator of Gubat Banwa!) These events were all received quite well, and we’ll be continuing with some more events this year too. More news will be shared in future posts!

New products, new projects

We have some new projects we’re working on this year – new zines, new TTRPGs, new puzzles – and we’ll also be releasing updates about those shortly!

Well, that’s it for now. Catch you again soon, and stay curious!
