It’s slightly less than one week until the doors open at Hobocon, and we have another announcement!
Now we’ve also got indie games. These are a little bit special, using collaborative improvisational gameplay to craft a story together with the GM. Donogh McCarthy will be running one of these games on Sunday morning at the convention, either “Best Friends” or “Monster of the Week”, depending on demand.
Monster of the Week
There are monsters out there. Most people don’t believe in them, but they’re real. Mostly, when someone finds out that monsters are real, that’s just before they die. But some people are mean enough, smart enough, crazy enough, or hurt enough, that they live. They go on a crusade to kill the monsters. That’s who you are.
A role-playing game about girlfriends and all their petty hatreds… Oh, I know. You’re gonna say that y’all get along just peachy. Well, that’s fine too. No one said any of this was true… But, between you and me: it really is. Anyway, you and some friends all play girlfriends and try to do stuff together, while secretly hating each other. And getting little frissons of excitement out of getting one up on your Best Friends. And it’s going to be fun.
