Character Manifest Google Sheet

Character Manifest & Coin Purse

This feature is finicky and may look weird in the Chrome browser. Visit the full Character Manifest Here or the Published Google Sheet instead.
When you click inside the Google Sheet it will force you to the top of the page. Scroll back down and now you're "In" the document.
Update your character's Coin Purse, Music Points, Items, etc. by right clicking on a cell and COMMENTING your update! Mods will be alerted via email.

Design a character deployed upon the HTML Wanderpus or positioned somewhere within the worlds at-large!

Chosen for its accessibility, the streamed TTRPGs will be played in the VERY newbie-friendly, indie system, Quest.

Join us! Quick Start:

1. Imagine Character Name & WanderCrew Role

2. Select Quest Class & Abilities

3. Create Roll20 & World Anvil



The HTML Wanderpus Submarine is a first and foremost a scientific exploratory vessel,
charged with the finding, studying and sealing of rifts as her main directive, while the Airship is more covert.
There are very few restrictions in terms of character creation for our world.
Characters must be between 3-8ft tall and relatively humanoid per the Quest system’s gameplay.
Past that, enjoy bringing a unique and engaging character to life!

  • "Race:" There are no defined "races" to chose from, simply imagine your character's form.

  • Technology: Characters from other games or worlds are welcome here, with the caveat that technology in Liminal is based on 1920's/30's era limitations; though reasonable modifications through design magic is allowed.
  • HTML Department & Role: Crew assignments should reflect what motivates or interests them! Great character designs tend to integrate abilities, corporeal form and their job/role within the WanderCrew seamlessly, i.e. spy diplomat, invoker engineer.

  • Current Crew: Check out the Character Manifest for character examples & inspiration, and Discord for workshopping help.

    The Quest System

    Chosen for its dedication to accessibility, Quest is exceedingly simple and now FREE!
    There is only HP & AP for stats, everyone "levels" once a month, and only a 20 sided die is needed to play!
    You can download the free Quest Digital Edition here or find Resources in the WanderDiscord.
    OR peruse all the Quest Abilities in World Anvil here.

      Abilities belong to learning paths, like the Ranger's Friend path, shown (to the right.) You must learn abilities in each path in order from left to right, starting with the first ability in each path.

      You can learn abilities from all of your learning paths. (You don't need to learn all of the abilities in one path before learning abilities in another one.)

      You can learn as many or as few abilities in each path as you want, as long as you learn new abilities in order.
      — Quest
  • Quest Class: Choose a quest class that compliments your character's form and position! Choose from: Fighter, Invoker, Ranger, Naturalist, Doctor, Spy, Magician, Wizard.
  • Quest Abilities: Start by choosing 6 class abilities. Legendary abilities are earned through gameplay or streamloots. A new ability is gained for every month of gameplay! Use abilities anywhere, anytime!
  • Quest Stats: Everyone starts with the max 10 HP and 10 AP.
    5 HP is restored at the end of a game you participated in (Player or Crew.)
    AP is only restored through Streamloot caused moments or individually awarded for brilliant character roleplay.
  • Quest Items: Your character is limited to 12 items at all times.
  • Other Limits: Seriously, get weird, get specific, make a Pinterest board, we love it!



    Currently, your character sheet/profile should both be made on Roll20 and on World Anvil.
    You want to use both. Roll20 holds your character's abilities and inventory,
    while World Anvil gives space for your character to become viewable and alive
    in the world we all create together!

    Oh I dunno, we were building the ship, and that went well enough. Then we were building the Rift Engine and out came LETO, familiar as my own breath. I've always said my machines have their own special voice, but didn't know it'd be so annoying! HA!
    — Officer Royce Vanderbilt


    by Nika Simone

    Warm welcomes to our noble ship. I'm Officer Joaquin, in charge of Diplomatic Relations. I've been told there may be spies on the ship. Get settled first, I'm sure we'll have many things to discuss soon enough.
