The Sun always shines upon the Empire of Salt.
It never sets. It is never dimmed by clouds.
The heat ebbs and flows, but the light is constant.
Shade is precious, and everyone casts a shadow.

Glare is a one-page microRPG designed for 2 players. Glare does not have a Story Guide or Game Master role, both players play the game with the same basic mechanics. The duties of storytelling and scene description are shared between the two players.

A single wanderer searches the Empire of Salt for a ritual that can build a new world on the remains of this ruined one. The two players take on aspects of that wanderer: Blood and Soul. The Empire of Salt is full of ancient runes, dangerous beasts, and hungry spirits, and the players must fend off these threats using their shared pools of Stamina and Resolve to power actions and abilities unique to them.

Glare also has three endings that depend on the players' choices and their success in the final encounter. The fate of the world is in your hands.

Note: These endings are intended to give players the chance to describe the aftermath of their journey the way they'd like and are not objectively good or bad. However, very roughly speaking, there is a "good" ending, a "bad" ending, and a "true" ending.
