A downloadable game
YOU are a Royal - half-magic, half-human. You're one of the court cards from the tarot deck - the impetuous Princess of Wands, the calculating Knight of Pentacles, the empire-building Queen of Wands, and so on. You use magic like a brick through the window of the world.
THEY are the Arcane - Death, The Hanged Man, The Devil, The Lovers, The Star. They are reality-bending monsters that wear human skin like a suit.
TONIGHT, before dawn, you are going to corner one of them and take their power for your own in a heist the likes of which the worlds have never seen. The city is going to burn. It's going to be beautiful.
ROYAL BLOOD is a rules-light heist roleplaying game for three or more players and a gamesmaster.To play, you'll need a deck of tarot cards and a handful of coins. Download it here. As with all my games, if you can't afford to buy it, drop me an email explaining why and I'll give it to you for free. Or send me a copy of you a game you've written and we'll do a swap.
