Magical Girls grapple with destiny in this multi-genre tabletop RPG. Girl By Moonlight explores the heartbreak of denying who you really are, fighting for what you believe in, and the transcendent power of building relationships while embracing your true self. As a Magical Girl you will clutch your tragic struggles tight, seeking to score defiant triumphs against the darkness of an oppressive society. The game reinterprets the classic examples of the genre to create an allegory for self-discovery and queer identity. The text uses 'magical girl' as a shorthand, but your magical girls need not be girls, necessarily, but people whose identities put them at the margins.
Designer Andrew Gillis takes the rules engine beneath highly-acclaimed Blades In The Dark and tunes it to create a unique play experience representing the breadth of the Magical Girl genre. Girl By Moonlight draws inspiration from many sources. When you sit down to play, your group will pick a Series Playset and tailor it with special rules, themes, threats, and more to make your game truly your own. The four major Series Playsets include: At The Brink of The Abyss. Heroic magical girls fight to reclaim a corrupted world. It's inspired by Sailor Moon and Steven Universe. On A Sea of Stars features mecha pilots struggling against extinction at the hands of the Leviathans and is inspired by Diebuster and The Vision of Escaflowne. Beneath A Rotting Sky deals with tragedy and betrayal where magical girls are doomed to an inevitable fate. It's inspired by Puella Magi Madoka Magica. In A Maze of Dreams draws on both Paprika and Serial Experiments. Its central themes are desire, mass culture, and ideas developing a life of their own.

All that awaits the fallen is the cold embrace of the Mother of the Dead.
Karthun: Lands of Conflict is an extensive epic fantasy setting for use with your favorite system such as Fate, D&D, or Savage Worlds. You must own a system book of your choice to play. Inside, you?ll find plenty of character ideas, locations, and NPCs to send your characters off on adventures galore.
Scum and Villainy is a Forged in the Dark game about the crew of a spaceship trying to keep flying and make ends meet while bending the iron fisted rule of the Galactic Hegemony. There are heists, chases, escapes, unwise deals, blaster fights, deceptions, betrayals, victories and high adventure among the stars. We play to find out if our spaceship crew can thrive amidst the teeming threats of powerful criminal syndicates, warring noble families, dangerous aliens, strange mystics, ruins of lost civilizations, and each crewmember?s own foibles and vices.
Gameplay focuses on criminal endeavors called jobs. A session of play usually consists of 1 or 2 jobs, each followed by recovery, downtime projects, and advancement for the the crew and their ship. In Scum and Villainy, your ship gets its own ?character sheet?, earns XP, upgrades, and levels up alongside the characters. As you advance the crew, you unlock new options and abilities for the scoundrels and pick a faction to back in the sector. Good luck out there! May your ship fly true, and may your blasters never jam.
Attention wizards, cooperative game fans, and Dresden Files fans! Play Harry Dresden and his friends as they take on the cases from Jim Butcher?s bestselling Dresden Files novels in the ultimate what-if scenario?what if Harry was on the scene with allies who weren?t there in the books? The Dresden Files Cooperative Card Game. Make your stand against the darkness?together!
This core game includes Harry, Murphy, Susan, Michael, and the Alphas. As those heroes, you will play through the first five novels as well as Side Jobs, a random scenario generator based on the short story collection of the same name. Use your shared pool of Fate points to take actions. Discard to generate more Fate points for the group and to activate your hero?s support abilities. Solve more cases than there are foes remaining on the board to win!
Polka will never die!... and neither will you, with help from the new heroes in this expansion for the Dresden Files Cooperative Card Game! Inside you?ll find two new character decks - Thomas Raith and Waldo Butters - and two new book decks - Blood Rites and Dead Beat.
Thomas Raith's deck is butt-kicker best at clearing obstacles and taking down foes. The deck features a slightly higher average Fate value per card, giving him potent discards as suits his family's wealth. The killer app? His Inner Demon stunt lets him play the top card of his deck for free. If luck's on your side, it can be a real game-changer. Waldo Butters' deck uses his incisive intellect to take advantages and investigate cases. Not making enough progress on your cases? With his talents as a Forensic Pathologist, Waldo can turn your hits into clues. (And yes?you'll get to play a Polka Will Never Die!)
Need a hand? You?re in luck as more of Harry?s friends join you in this expansion for the Dresden Files Cooperative Card Game! Inside you?ll find two new character decks - Sanya and Molly Carpenter - and two new book decks - Proven Guilty and White Night.
Sanya's deck has a Hand of Hope Stunt that pulls a case close and adds clues to it ? a kind of inverse of Michael's Stunt that knocks a foe far away and adds hits. It's that moment in the novel when Sanya shows up, helps an injured Harry get up on his feet, and says something Russian and profound that triggers a breakthrough on the case. And as the Knight of Hope, Sanya'sTalent offers a simple but powerful benefit of increased Fate Point payouts when discarding for fate, helping everyone on the team breathe just a bit easier. Molly Carpenter's deck, meanwhile, mirrors her dad's in another way: like Michael's Talent, hers must be "readied" by a discard before it can be used. On a subsequent turn, you can flip the readied card back over to alter one of the dice you roll when you play a card. About half of Molly's cards involve a dice roll of one kind or another, so this is a powerful engine for optimizing your plays. But perhaps even more potent is her stunt, which lets you copy another player's currently-unused stunt! Need to double up on Harry's foe-finisher or Karrin's fate-harvester? Maybe summon an extra (if illusory) pack of werewolves to chew on injured foes, or get your Toe-Moss on to play the top card of your deck? Grasshopper is here to to help. Whatever your team can do, she can do ? the power of a Talented Holomancer.
We've got your back! The White Council?s grey cloaks, the Wardens, join the fray in this expansion for the Dresden Files Cooperative Card Game! Inside you?ll find two new character decks - Carlos Ramirez and Anastasia Luccio - and two new book decks - Small Favor and Turn Coat.
Anastasia Luccio's deck is all about strategic plays and decisive moves. Overall her deck is focused most strongly on taking on the challenges that decide your ultimate win-or-lose fate, and nowhere is that more apparent than with her two "on the table" cards. Use her Captain of the Wardens talent to go after the toughest challenges you face, whether they're Case or Foe. Flip her stunt to Focus Our Efforts! from one Case or a Foe to another, maximizing your chances of clearing them off the board. And as you might expect, Carlos Ramirez's deck is just plain swashbuckling fun, at its best when he's taking on Foes or clearing Obstacles. On the battlefield, a Young Hotshot Warden like Ramirez knows that knowledge is power; his Talent lets you remove a Clue from a Case to land two Hits on an injured Foe. And as a Warden, Carlos has always Got Your Back, using his stunt to allow an ally to reclaim a card from their discard, letting the team deploy its greatest strengths a second time.
This expansion includes two new player decks. First is Jared Kincaid, one of the deadliest mercenaries in the paranormal world of the Dresden files. Second is Mortimer Lindquist, an ectomancer, meaning he has the power to communicate and interact with ghosts. It also includes new book decks for books 12 and 13 of the series, Changes and Ghost Story.
Feeling Winter?s bite? Warm up with this expansion for the Dresden Files Cooperative Card Game! Inside you?ll find two alternative character decks?Winter Knight Harry and Winter Lady Molly?and two new book decks?Cold Days and Skin Game.
