Evil Hat Productions has launched a Kickstarter for the Powered by the Apocalypse RPG Thirsty Sword Lesbians. Within hours, the campaign funded and sent that target of $19,999 tumbling.
Written by April Kit Walsh, the game celebrates queer love and power because sometimes a sword fight can end in a kiss. You can follow the campaign’s success at the Kickstarter page.
The game is packed with flirting, swords-fighting, witty banter and drama while being wrapped in a system that supports an interesting narrative and safe play.
In Thirsty Sword Lesbians, you might sometimes need to use your sword-fighting skills to save the day, but sometimes it might be a kiss, and you’re trying to make the world a better place.
At $15, you’re a flirt, which means you get immediate access to the prototype, the final PDF will all the updates and artwork and a print-on-demand and at-cost coupon. That last perk is often extra, but that’s not the case here. You also get all the digital stretch goals.
You’re a cyber flirt at $29, which gets you the same perks as above plus the Roll20 campaign module.
$30 is what it takes to get the hardcopy, as well as the PDF, but there’s a catch. Evil Hat does not ship Kickstarters out of the States.
Needless to say, if you’re not into queer love this game isn’t for you. If you don’t think trans women are women, then the game isn’t for you. If you’re a fascist, then the game isn’t for you.
Not thirsty? Well, this RPG does assume (and require) that some sort of connection is made between characters however that doesn’t need to be a sexual one. It doesn’t need to be a romantic one either, but there does need to be a connection.
Space, ships and romance!
