Shattered Hopes and Broken Dreams

A mashup between Magical Girls, Firebrands and Betrayal at House on the Hill. Fight for Love and Justice, powered by the depths of your Despair; sacrifice yourself for your friends, be crushed by their thoughtless cruelty; end the nightmare, knowing that the world you save is inevitably destroyed by its saviors or their captors.

This game is my owning the part of me that turns every game I run into magical girls, meeting my exploring the idea that Hope and Despair are the same thing. It starts off hopeful and safe but turns into a bloody, violent apocalypse. Your magical girls are not perfect, but they try to be, being magically gifted avatars of good communication, lasers and compassion.

GM-less, diceless*, prompt-driven play. Developed under the theory “Safety mechanics should be core mechanics”. Safety tools intended to explore dangerous spaces.
