A downloadable game

Swindler's Ward is a solo tabletop roleplaying game that puts you in the shoes of a scheming scoundrel with a small child to look after.

You play by making notes on a story sheet as if keeping a diary. You are assisted by prompts that represent various criminal opportunities available to the Swindler as well as important events in their Ward's life. Your capers are realised with a system using three six-sided dice (one of them a different colour than the rest).

The game was made for the 2021 Rascals Jam. Much of the writing is still not fully polished. However, the current version 0.5 is very much playable and all of the content is basically in place.
