As part of the Evil Beagle Movie Club, we’ve watched a few Studio Ghibli movies, and Chuubo’s Marvelous Wish-Granting Engine definitely skews in that direction (though it still relies on Western themes and ideas, too). There’s lots of fairy-tale aspects, especially if you also pick up The Chuubo’s Marvelous Wish-Granting Engine RPG Halloween Special, which very specifically serves as an “introduction to its “Fairy Tales” genre.”
The Chuubo’s Marvelous Wish-Granting Engine RPG is the new diceless RPG from Jenna Katerin Moran, author of the well-regarded Nobilis and an important contributor to Eos’ Weapons of the Gods and White Wolf’s Exalted RPG.
It’s a progressive, warm-hearted game that focuses on adventure and slice-of-life stories — think Laputa: Castle in the Sky or Kiki’s Delivery Service, but also Western stuff like Friendship is Magic, Harry Potter, and Adventure Time!
Pursue fabulous quests.
Progress through Issues.
And find a place for yourself in a world of breathtaking beauty.
