Bluebeard’s Bride – Horror RPG Kickstarter by Magpie Games

There is a new role-playing game Kickstarter that you will find very interesting. It is Bluebeard’s Bride, and it is a mature feminine horror themed game based on Bluebeard’s fairy tale. There are several stretch goals already met that add a ton to the game that looks to be already full of awesomeness. Here are the details from Bluebeard’s Bride Kickstarter page:

Bluebeard’s Bride is an investigatory horror tabletop roleplaying game for 3-5 players, written and designed by Whitney “Strix” Beltrán, Marissa Kelly, and Sarah Richardson, and 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.

Back the game, download it from our first update, and give it a try!

Bluebeard’s Bride is based on the Powered by the Apocalypse system used in Apocalypse World, Dungeon World, Monsterhearts, Masks, and more. It’s a simple system; when your character takes an action that fits a move, the move tells you what happens, or you roll two six-sided dice to find out. Since this is a horror game, we have modified it so that the majority of moves use no dice; this harkens back to telling ghost stories around the fire.
