A great storytelling game that reminds me of Quiet Year and For the Queen. The goddess has performed miracles and given you gifts, and you know she will return in a year. You answer questions throughout the seasons and you relationship with her changes. The cards are beautifully designed, with evocative prompts that sometimes ask hard questions about your relationship with The Lady.
A downloadable game

This is a three player game that encompasses a year in the life of three children who have been visited by a divine spirit. What would you do? Who would you tell? Who would believe you? Are you ready for when She returns?
This is a no prep, GMless ttrpg created for the Folklore Game Jam.

The cards contain everything you need for a print and play of the game. This including a set of the rules printed on the cards so that the whole game can travel simply and neatly.

This game is wonderful! The prompts give enough direction to create a lush narrative while still being broad enough to create a truly unique setting. The replayablilty is huge - in both story content and tone.
If you enjoy collaborative storytelling and worldbuilding, I couldn't recommend this enough!
This is a beautiful narrative prompt game that not only encouraged us to create a rich story about our three children and their divine visitation, but also organically built up a whole world around them (we did not use our modern world as the setting). Further, I found myself unintentionally slipping into an understanding of being a confused child in an adult world who has a million questions and not enough answers. It's a very deep game if you let it be, and I really enjoyed playing it.
This is a wonderfully flexible game that can lead to very fun and endearing stories. It is beautiful and simple in its design and look, yet deviously deep depending on your prompts.
