The Fifth World presents an open source shared universe — a vision of a neotribal, ecotopian, animist realist future created by a growing community of authors, artists, designers, gamers, and dreamers — and we want you to join us.

Get Involved

Roleplaying Game: Step into a feral future.

In the Fifth World tabletop roleplaying game, you and a handful of friends explore what happens to your descendants living beyond civilization in the Fifth World, amongst the familiar places of your own life, transformed by four centuries of change. You’ll trace the history of your family and learn the customs that helped them to survive and thrive, and then take on the roles of the members of that family as they struggle to balance the web of kinship all around them and find the right path into their future. Afterwards, add your stories to the wiki to make them part of the growing history of the Fifth World.
