Hi! I just wanted to say "Thanks!" for putting together this SRD for Wretched & Alone. 
I made my own game called, Revenge Is A Poison using it. The SRD was very helpful.


thank you so much!!!! i'm so happy it helped!!

Super useful, very appreciated.

thank you so much!

I've come back to refer to this since starting work on my second Wretched and Alone game and it's been so so helpful. Thank you so much for this incredible and wonderfully made resource!

thank you so much!!

Is there any problem if I do a Spanish version of the game using this? I would change the text and credit the SRD as well

please do!! that's no problem at all!

Wow, what a great contribution to the Jam! This is really helpful, and I love that you included some words on game safety in your template. I will need to go back into mine and make room for that! This guide makes the world a better place. Thank you!
