A downloadable fowl background pack

Buy Now$3.00 USD or more

Six fowl backgrounds to add to your wacky adventures in spheres, space, and beyond. 

Choose or roll from a variety of chickens, from the enigmatic Shapeshifting Chicken of the Night, the proud Ascendant Fighting Cock, to the powerful Awakened Fried Chicken. And three more backgrounds that are just as bizarre. 

They are all fun and balanced, whatever that means for you. 

UPDATE: Want a sneak peek of one the backgrounds? Check my blog to see the whole background stats of Shapeshifting Chicken of the Night!

LIFE OF THE POULTRY is an independent production by John Erwin Casia and is not affiliated with the Melsonian Arts Council.

A submission for ChickenJam

UPDATE: Uploaded tarot card-sized version of the game, as a submission for Troika Tarot Jam

Each paid copy beyond the minimum price will create a community copy, refreshed every week. So for every $3 you buy beyond the minimum price, another person gets a copy for free! That way you'll have people to talk about and play the backgrounds with!

Incredibly fun backgrounds! I was legitimately delighted at how creative these were. I feel bad, because now I have to bug someone to run Troika for me so I could assume my chickeny form!


Thanks for checking it out! Luck and cluck to your future troika! games, hope you're able to try them out!
