I am happy to announce that my first RPG product, The Coven, is now available on drivethroughrpg for the price of $2.99 USD. It is 45 pages long PDF. You can view a 10 page preview of it there. Here is a description of the game:
The Destitute Widow, the Unmarried Spinster, the Bookish Waif, the Crippled Hag—you are women from all walks of life who have become bonded through helplessness and injustice. Stuck in your horrid village and the medieval society it embodies, you have sold your souls to your dark Sovereign and become a coven of witches. Salvation lies forever beyond you! But Fear not! In seven months time your Sovereign shall come.
But first you must prepare the way. Upon the full moon of each of the seventh months you must hold unholy Sabbath. Upon the seventh, in final rite, your Sovereign will emerge upon the earth!
In The Coven players create a group of level-1 female magic-users who are all part of the same coven of witches. The Coven must attempt to hold Sabbath every month while avoiding the other villagers and authorities who would seek to stop or destroy them. A wise Coven knows that fear and subterfuge are far more powerful than a raw display of magical power. They must carefully balance trying to achieve their goals with the attraction it garners. Whether they ultimately seek to wreak bloody vengeance or simply the power to correct suffered injustices is up to them.
The Coven requires the rules presented in the Lamentations of the Flame Princess core rulebook and Vaginas are Magic (also by Lamentations of the Flame Princess) to play.
The Coven includes:
- 12 Character backgrounds
- 6 different Dark Sovereigns to worship
- Randomly generated unholy Sabbaths
- 12 Tables to randomly generate a village and its surrounding lands.
- 7 tables to randomly generate virtues and 7 tables to randomly generate vices for each villager.
- 2 new VAM spells.
- Information on the structure of the game and how to run it.
