Four women tabletop designers have put together a collection of four short pen and paper roleplaying games for $10—with a portion of the proceeds going to support the cancer treatment of a friend in the RPG community.
Designer Kira Magrann, co-curator of the collection with Dymphna C., says all the games are "based around the ideas of witchcraft, feminism, and telling stories together. Each one can be played in one sitting, with a variety of players, and has a different tone and agenda."
Even if you don't normally play tabletop games, it seems like these little sessions are accessible—your purchase gets you the four PDF play sheets and rules. Sounds like a fun thing for the Halloween season!
