English Translation

Hello, and welcome to the page for O Tawa! Thanks for coming!

What is O Tawa?

This is a tabletop role-playing game, and is, to the best of my knowledge, the first even TTRPG created entirely in the language Toki Pona. I'm Lara Paige Turner, and I making this zine because I love Toki Pona and I wanted to share that love by making a game for Toki Pona speakers. 

In this game, you play a group of adventurers. Together, you sail to new places, meet strange new people, defeat dangerous creatures, and help out the many small islands of the great ocean. Fortunately, you have magical powers to help you. When you speak Words of Power, you change the world around you.

O Tawa is meant to be an low-stakes, relaxing sort of game. You'll explore new places and make a story together. All you need are 6-sided dice, some pencils and paper, friends, and these rules. Oh! And you'll need to know how to speak Toki Pona, or be willing to learn.

About this Zine

This game is being released for Zine Month.  During Zine Month, designers all around the world are releasing short-form RPG zines. Why? Because zines are cool! This particular one is a 20-page zine which contains all the rules you need. There’s also an English translation, which is useful if you’re still learning Toki Pona!

When you get the game, you can order the physical zine or the digital version. The digital version can be used off the computer, or turned into a physical zine if you’ve got a printer. When you get this, you get both the Toki Pona and English versions!

If you get the physical zine you’ll get an actual physical zine which you can hold in your hand. If you order one of these, I will print it out and assemble it, sign the front of it, and send it right to you via USPS. You can get the Toki Pona version, the English version, or both! If you order the physical zine, you get the digital versions as well.

Edit: I figured out how to get the full color versions in the correct order. Wanted to thank you for this creation! I'm very excited to play sometime soon!

Older post: Any way to get a printable PDF zine version in color? I'd like to print it in full color if possible. Thanks! I just tried printing the full color version but the numbers didn't match up!

Does this game require a GM? How many players would work for it?


It is GMed, and generally aimed at 2-4 players.
