You have a need, a deep burning need
that drives you. Is it love, regret, desire?

The darkness whispers, 
“I can help you…”
Minutes turn to hours as you try to focus
on the voice. Symbols, shapes, swirl in the
darkness at the edge of your perception.
If only you could grasp them, your needs
would be met and more.

What is Sigils in the Dark?

Sigils in the Dark is a journaling game and GM supplement. The goal of the game is to create an evil mage’s spellbook. You’ll take up the role of this wizard with a desperate need, in search of arcane power to get what they want. They will try to understand dark sigils just outside their perception by randomly generating spells and adding liner notes to their grimoire. In the end, you’ll have an in-game artifact that you can pass on to players and hopefully know a little more about what your evil mage has sacrificed to get where they are.

A scholar&gentleman! I'll be back in a day or so with your monetary sacrifice. You've earned it. Your response time almost made me blush. Excellent customer service rating. 5's across the the board. Imma pay these bills, then imma come back and donate you so hard...😬😏

Thank you. :)

You’re very welcome. 

Is there anywhere to get physical copies?

Not at the moment.

Thanks for the quick reply! If it ever becomes a reality, I'd definitely be interested!


The core of this game is great to use for world-building as you can develop sigils that you can then use with or against your players. Since you already have the core data from each line, it can work in depth.

I had to make some tweaks to the concept in order to make it work for me, but even at its core it is still functional. There are some rough patches, but they can be corrected and adjusted.

A simple but elegant game that lets you tell a story and create an interesting narrative artifact all at the same time. Love it.

I adore ttrpg/sigilcraft crossover episodes.  Gamifying chaos magic is so obvious yet absurd.  Cheers!
