A hack of Lasers & Feelings by John Harper. Inspired by the vibes, if not the specifics, of Dark Souls and Bloodborne, Soul & Survival asks you to find hope in a dark fantasy world that offers little of it, and challenges you to find a balance between surviving its dangers and retaining your own humanity.

This is a lovely take on soulslike games, and a cool Lasers & Feelings hack too.

I especially like the propositions of very evocative roles for the characters. Thanks for sharing!


Soul & Survival is a soulslike TTRPG if a soulslike game was not bound by the Souls name but inspired by the gritty and gothic melodrama they present. Although the game plays fast and hard like any Lasers & Feelings hack, S&S also focuses on a lot of character play. Your actions are tied to how the world has cursed you, your role, title and items which respectively show your faith to Dodona, the sun, your humanity, past and mission against the darkness. Each part of the game oozes flavor and attention from the author.
