Good Society – A Jane Austen Roleplaying Game by Hayley Gordon and Alex Robinson
With creator Hayley Gordon and guest players AStylePixie and MoxReuby!
Good Society is a collaborative regency rpg that seeks to capture the heart, and the countenance, of Jane Austen’s work.
It is a game of balls, estates, sly glances, and turns about the garden. At least on the surface. Underneath this, just as in Austen’s own novels, it is a game of social ambition, family obligation and breathtaking, heart-stopping longing.

Nekomancy by Jessica Marcrum
With creator Jessica Marcrum and guest players Martzi Campos, Jesse Vigil, and Aven Gonzalez!
As many have often surmised, cats are the dominant species of this world. There is yet another world, far from this one, where cats walk upright and live in towers devoted to the study of spell craft. All cats have innate magic, but few choose to devote their life to studying it. These are the Nekomancers, and their world is one of sorcery and wonder.
