Could you upload the new version in a single page style instead of just the spreads? I wanted to print a little booklet of it. Thanks!

Knave of Cups isn’t planning on releasing a pages PDF of their print zine layout at present.
I'm trying Her Odyssey as my first foray into solo/journalling RPGs, and so far I'm just enjoying the character creation part. I did have a question, however: you mention once in the guide of putting a drawn card into a discard pile after use. Given that the game is intended to be played over the course of many days/sessions, how "required" or "recommended" is it to actually use a discard pile? I'd rather not risk misplacing some of my deck over the course of a long playthrough. I was originally planning on just re-shuffling every time I played...
That’s a reasonable concern! You can just place the cards at the bottom of your deck rather than using a discard pile.
(While you could certainly shuffle the deck between every draw, it’s a variant rule for a reason - I find it changes the feel of the game a slight but significant amount. It’s great if that extra layer of uncertainty is what you want to opt in for, but placing the cards at the bottom of the deck is a better way to get the standard experience if that’s what you want!)
I had the pleasure of playing Her Odyssey for my solo TTRPG Wednesday!
I did a mix of a first look and playthrough of the game. Had fun, got spooky, and glad I was able to share with my watchers!
Below is the VOD I uploaded on Youtube.
Thank you so much for sharing Clarice’s odyssey! I’m so glad she was able to find a new home after a short and sweet journey.
I love the designs and layout. Great job.
Dunno if you still will respond to comments but, I was wondering if it's within the expected play to choose not roll a stat check, especially if the value is impossible, or an attempt should always be made at surpassing the Omen score?
Hi! You can choose to modify your own play however you like, but the intended rule is to always at least try to roll a stat check. After all, even if there is no chance of meeting the Omen score, the stats you have not used for that day will still increase.
Oh wow, thank you so much! The point about a dyslexia-friendly version is well-made, and I'll be looking into reformatting the game with that in mind!
Definitely giving this a try. :) Been trying to get into Journaling RPG's for a while.
This was lovely. I found the whole experience very peaceful and cathartic.
I played over several days and it felt like a pleasant ritual at the end of a long day.
Thank you for making this game!
I love this idea so much and you've executed it so elegantly!
I was thinking about doing a solo journaling game for Caltrop Core and I think you've inspired me to go through with it :)
