Kagematsu

Japan, 1572. The country is filled with strife, warring factions pulling any able bodied men into war, leaving villages populated by only women, children and old men. Now a small village is living under the horror of a dangerous threat that casts its long shadow; without a defender, its people are doomed. Enter Kagematsu, a wayward ronin fleeing a troubled past. Here is a defender for the village, if only he can be swayed from his meandering course...

"Kagematsu is THE current benchmark for design in small press, short format RPGs." -- LC


Montsegur 1244

A story game about burning for your belief. "Do you renounce your heretic beliefs and do you wish to receive the forgiveness of the merciful Father?"
In March 1244 this question was posed to several hundred Cathars. In this short, fast game, the players collaborate to create a story about who these people were. Each player takes on the role of one of the besieged Cathars who will face the choice between life and faith.

"...a seamless blend of delicious history and tasty hard choices. Playing a doomed Cathar puts an epic and tragic story absolutely front and center, and the game's simple but innovative mechanics relentlessly reinforce the theme. Someone will burn. You will be changed and surprised." -- JM

Both nominated for the Diana Jones award 2010.
