My first TTRPG is OUT IN THE WORLD!
I created Virgins & Vixens for an online game jam with the theme of Folktales. Having taught about folktales for YEARS since it is part of my grade's curriculum, I had trouble narrowing down ideas on which tale I should theme my game on. Then I realized, why narrow my scope? Lets hit some of the universal themes in folktales around the world... AND LET'S MAKE IT FEMINIST! (on brand)
Thus, Virgins & Vixens was born.
Players start out as one of 8 classic women archetypes found in folklore, fairy tales and mythology around the world. These archetypes have severe limitations - just like the one-dimensional tropes of women found in these types of stories! Through game-play mechanics like Defiance Rolls and collecting Empowerments, the players break out of these constraints and rewrite the tale of their character!
It's available for $3 at https://goldenlassogames.itch.io/virginsandvixens 🙂
I FINISHED IT 4 MINUTES BEFORE THE FOLKLORE JAM DEADLINE! LOL
Special thanks to @Stu @ForgottenSaves for their deep proofreads and everyone on the Happy Jacks crew who play tested it with me! And also the wonderful Mr. Kimi who made it look so, so very good. <3
Thanks to everyone here on the forum who gave me advice on pricing and what the final product should look like!
