Every year, when the nights are the longest and coldest, gifts are chosen and delivered by an army of secret hands. Every year you tried to understand how they did it, to set up traps, to film them, to catch them redhanded, but alas, you did not discover the secret.
Yet you were noticed.

Now you’ve grown. You are ready to join the elite tactical team in charge of the most meaningful and heartwarming mission: joy-giving.

Welcome to the Yule Army.

You’re part of an elite joy-giving task force. Your mission is to acquire a target, study their need, find the suitable solution, and deliver the goods without a trace.

First released on the Short Games Digest Vol.3 in the San Jenaro Co-op initiative, the Yule Army is now a standalone product for your heartwarming initiatives!

This tiny 24-page TTRPG (plus printer-friendly A4 and US Letter format character sheets) contains a premise, a game mechanics system, as well as sample missions to play with friends and family, including children as young as 7. The system as written requires your favorite d20, but any other die (or cards or paper-rock-scissors) can make it work. Spread joy and kindness!

YULE ARMY is a lighthearted RPG about being professional gift-planters. A game aimed at kids (but I am sure it is enjoyable to play for adults too), it has easy to learn rules. I quite like the fun stats of the game, being Know-it-all, Jock, Streeter, Weirdo and Chatter; all of which feels very fitting for a kids' game. I love the operation samples included in the game, which contains sad and lonely people that I want to cheer up with gifts already.
