Nighttide is a work-in-progress (WIP) diceless RPG based on the Gauge rules (also WIP). In this current iteration (as of September 2022), it is a short, diceless game of gothic horror intended for 1–4 players plus a facilitator, inspired especially by Bloodborne and Castlevania. The entire rules and character sheet fit on one side of a sheet of letter-sized paper; facilitator guidelines, rumors, and a short scenario starter fit on the other side. 

This game is currently on the back burner while I focus on completing other projects closer to the finish line. Note that early playtests indicate that the resolution rules in this document are less effective than the approach in Gauge (which is less precise, and demands more of the GM to interpret, but invites less tallying at the table). I hope to return to Nighttide with a longer version at some point, offering more guidance for play and scenario material.
