Suggested Price: $2.53


ONCE UPON A TIME, there was a woman whose heart was broken by someone cruel and unthinking; her love curdled and grew toxic, and each day dawned with a terrible weight upon her. Dark and desperate, she cast a spell over herself to draw out the strongest parts of her to fight by her side.

A bodyhorror dimension-delving game about overcoming a terrible break-up by casting an inadvisable spell over yourself written by Grant Howitt and illustrated by Sarah Gordon.

One page games?

HERE’S THE DEAL: I write one tabletop or live roleplaying game a month. It will be no bigger than one side of A4 paper (that’s one side of letter paper, for you American types) and I will do all the art, layout and design myself in pen.

My games are, in general: short, punchy, well-written and exciting. Over the last six years of writing I’ve become more serious and less silly, so expect to see a mix of tones ranging from introspective and heart-breaking to daft and explosive. I’ll always strive to innovate and offer something original or surprising in each game.
