My supplement:

Love Conquers
Supplement for any existing non PvP Role-playing game.

Requirement:
One token, preferably in the shape of a heart.
We shall refer to this as Love.
This is placed on the table, just a bit almost beyond everyone’s reach.

Deep down, we are social beings.  Whether or not we would admit it, we do care for others.  This supplement adds that little dose of truth into any game. 
While Love is at the table:
Any player can take it and declare in-character an admission of care or feelings for another player character in the game.  Sincerity counts.  If others feel it wasn’t sincere, Love must be returned to the table.

Love is Powerful.
At any point in the game that someone holds Love, that player can return the token back to the table to give the person he cares for a bonus re-roll.  This may affect any number of dice. 

Love Spreads.
Any other player may, at any time, also declare in-character an admission of love.  If so, they take the token from the one holding it.

If two claim the same character, that person must choose only one.  The other can no longer benefit from your love.

I think so. When we tested it, we were happy with just a reroll.

But in a romcom game we played, we simply gave it an automatic success.

Was hoping the game would pick up, actually. The first planned release (A Single Companion) was to add the following playkits:
Magical Princess, Sci Fi Mecha, Slasher Movie, Dance Off and Animal Farm War.

crosses fingers
Thanks for supporting the book!

My submission:

The Trial
For any odd number of players.
Needs three black and three white tokens.

One plays the Judgeseer.  She sits at the center of the room, and the rest split to two groups on either side.   Each side has come to raise a complaint.  The group with the eldest player starts the game by stating the issue. 

Only one person from each side can speak at a time. Afterwards, someone from the other side must rebut, or raise a related issue.  The argument must always take turns.

At any time, during the arguments, the Judgeseer can “sense” a speaker lying. If so, the Judgeseer declares aloud while that speaker speaks: “LIE.”  The other side then must speak and tell the truth of that topic.  That explanation, might be a lie as well.  It all depends on what the Judgeseer senses.

At any time one speaks out of turn, the Judgeseer drops a token. One side uses the black tokens. One side uses the white tokens.  When a token is dropped all must remain silent.  The Judgeseer then chooses who speaks to start the turns. 

If any side has caused three tokens to drop, that side has lost the debate.
