Welcome to the WeirdSide–a massive multiverse made up of wonderfully strange worlds, all created by players like you.

TAWotWS is a trilogy of New Weird, Gothic, romantic, science fantasy slice of life dramedies.

The three games, as a whole, owe a great deal to the games The Quiet Year and Ribbon Drive by Avery Alder, and The Deep Forest by Mark Diaz Truman and Avery Alder. All three of those are amazing, and you should absolutely check them out! The WeirdSide would not exist without those three exceptional games.

Much of this trilogy is about the intersection between the Expected (things that exist in our modern reality and are commonplace) and the Unexpected (things that are rare in our modern reality) and the Outlandish (things that cannot exist in our modern reality, at least not for certain: dinosaurs, aliens, dragons, demons, wizards, demigods, etc.)
