A Feelings-Focused Game System
The Thirsty Sword Lesbians RPG celebrates queer love and power. The game uses a lightweight, easy-to-learn system to focus the story on your characters' feelings, angst, and relationships. Player safety and consent are built in to the mechanics so you can dive into the messy world of flirtatious swordfighting with confidence.
Will you be a Trickster, who craves closeness but fears vulnerability? A Scoundrel, who keeps looking to the next horizon instead of honoring what she has? A Spooky Witch, friend to monsters who is seen as monstrous herself? Or something else entirely?
With nine different archetypes to choose from, you can discover and customize the Thirsty Sword Lesbian that speaks to you.
The core mechanics are an evolution of the "Powered by the Apocalypse" game engine used in RPGs like Masks, Monsterhearts, and The Watch.
