Zephyr - An Anarchist Game of Fleeting Identities (audio product)


Zephyr: An Anarchist Game of Fleeting Identities is a roleplaying game set in the wandering, sentient continent of Ophoi. This entity travels on a relentless march across an endless salt flat, its four lungs bursting with sentimental energy - the alien emotions of the Zephyr, which comes in Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black. Like most substances, the emotions of the Zephyr coalesce into mountains made of rage, rivers of sorrow, fields grown out of the essence of guilt - everything that is, in its whole colorful gamut, including complex lifeforms.

From these emotions and their fusion, the Windfolk are born.


You are one of them, setting out from a far flung community in mountainous embrace, to travel this eerie continent in order to fulfill sacred Obligations. These Obligations are crafted by the players, becoming the main drivers for the narrative as well as the knots that tie your characters to the peoples they meet across the land. 

Venturing forth into the Living Landmass, you will hunt, cook, craft, and glide your way into the depths of the world - pushing each of your specialties in order to survive while trying to avoid the terrifying menace of the Salt States.


The Zephyr Rulebook is a 250 page long journey of epic proportions, fully illustrated from the first to the last page, featuring a character creation process in comic book format (through which your character's identity will take shape based on their outlook on Windfolk myths) as well as Technologies, Patterns, and the full breadth of rules needed to make Ophoi come to life.




Your DriveThruRPG purchase includes not just the Zephyr Rulebook in light and standard PDF formats, but also the character sheets for the game, as well as regional maps you can print out, and an abridged audiobook version of the rulebook so you can listen to it whenever you please to. Like all Araukana products, I will be updating it for free over time with any extra content and corrections we may add.

Note: Zephyr uses cyan, magenta, yellow, and black tokens in order to play. I suggest around 25 tokens of each color to be well stocked for your game.

There are very few games in the RPG space that push the medium truly forward and do new things with design. Zephyr is one of those games. The engine of the Reveals and the way ones constitution and food is prioritized is nothing like anything you have [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
