A hand-created one-page RPG about proper ladies of a marriageable age and their giant robots powered by a malign eldritch intelligence. Will you find a suitable husband? Will you repel the French invaders? Will your eternity reactor leak and drive you and your sisters irrevocably mad, haunted my whispers from the dark between the stars? And – will you be late for the ball on Thursday eve?
Ryan McMullan –
Our group played this and had a great time. I had to fill in a few gaps as GM and make things work, but the game prompts and character direction gave a delightful balance between high society, military action, and eldritch horror. The key for us was keeping the scope of action broad enough that both the French attack and the neighbor’s recital could both be resolved in 3-4 turns of actions. The blind cards to determine actions leads to some nice chaos and underscores the need for coordination, plus gives a flighty or impetuous sister a chance to be flighty or impetuous. Nice job.
