A downloadable apocalypse

Buy Now$5.00 USD or more

You were one of the most powerful Arcanists this world has ever known. Now you are barely surviving. Once your magic could level a city in an hour. Now it can barely light a bonfire in the same time. 

The Thirsting Children, devoted of the Drinker of Mind and Magic, have raised their master from the folds beyond reality.  The Mana of all living creatures has been drunk, causing the flora of the world to waste away, and all the fauna that did not have enough Mana to survive that  first gulp became Hollowed Chalices, mindless servants to the Drinker. Those who did make it retained barely wisps of the magic they once held. And the Drinker thirsts still.

You have two options now. Waste away and die, wait for the Drinker to finish you off. Or work with your fellow Arcanists, former allies, rivals, or even enemies. And make your way through this wasted world to dethrone the monster that ended the world.

What is the min/max number of players? (please tell me if the number already includes a GM, because I”m new to TTRPG)

Ideal is 3-4 players and a GM, but you could easily have a couple more!


The themes in this game incredible. Within only a couple of paragraphs, you know what you are getting into and the kind of harsh yet fantastic adventure that awaits you. The way it uses the Breathless system is effective, and the rolling tables add so much flavor to the game. Manadrunk is a success from beginning to end.


The description and premise are very evocative and the included tables offer a wide variety of ideas and options which help to paint a clear picture of the world and the game itself. This is a fun and interesting use of the Breathless system base!
