Bluebeard's Bride Kickstarter will launch next weeeeek!
Hey everyone! We have exciting news to share — the Bluebeard’s Bride Kickstarter is going live in a week!

Bluebeard’s Bride is an investigatory horror tabletop roleplaying game, written and designed by +Whitney Beltrán, +Marissa Kelly, and +Sarah Richardson, and is based on the Bluebeard fairy tale.

In this game you and your friends explore Bluebeard’s home as the Bride, creating your own beautifully tragic version of the dark fairy tale. Investigate rooms, discover the truth of what happened, experience the nightmarish phantasmagoria of this broken place, and decide whether or not you are a faithful or disloyal bride.

Stay tuned for more on the Kickstarter as it draws nearer. Whitney, Marissa, and Sarah did absolutely incredible work on Bluebeard’s Bride, and we can’t wait to share it with you!

Drumroll please....
Masks: A New Generation is up on DriveThru RPG!

If you missed the Masks Kickstarter, we just uploaded the final PDF to DTRPG. Teenage superhero drama fueled by the Powered by the Apocalypse engine, ready for your table! Woot!

I'm so proud of this game. When +Brendan Conway first told me he wanted to make a PbtA game about teenage superheroes in which everyone's stats changed all the time depending on how they viewed themselves... I thought he was a little crazy.

But the final product is one of the best games we've ever released. The playbooks are exciting and dynamic, the basic moves create superhero action and teenage drama in equal measure, and the art is some of the coolest stuff we've every published. 10/10 would follow Brendan's crazy vision again. :D

Huge congrats to +Brendan Conway, +Daniel Solis  +Marissa Kelly, +Amanda Valentine, Brooke Carnevale, +Michael Lunsford, +Shelley Harlan and +Derrick Kapchinsky for getting this amazing book ready for print. We're sending the file to the printer this week, so stay tuned for more information about print copies!
