Once upon a time, Julia and Dijon made a game about Steven Universe. That is this game, and this is a playtest of the rules/campaign! Featuring not just the authors of the game, but brand new players Sanguinary Novel and Sachibelle. If you want to grab a copy of Faceted for free, forever, you can grab a copy here! Enjoy!
This is character creation for our next Saturday campaign, which takes place in Julia's home city of Youngstown! Urban Shadows is a Powered By the Apocalypse game of neo-noir urban fantasy, where the characters are constantly inching ever closer to becoming the corruption they seek to save their city from. We've got Shell as the Fae, Mix as the Tainted, Heave as the Hunter, Dijon as the Hallowed, and Joe as the Wizard, each of which is ready to be plunged directly into Julia's shitty re-imagining of Youngstown as a den of occult corruption and crime. Come for the long discussion of Youngstown's history and socio-economic make up, stay for the fact that every character knows each other thanks them all playing a specific MMO.
We're playing Vampire 5th edition! The vampires of New Orleans are in dire straits, as the Second Inquisition closes in on the city and the Camarilla and Anarchs move against each other; the city is on the brink of war, and a group of fledglings is being thrown right into the fire.
Stories carry power; the story of David and Goliath inspires the little guy to challenge the stronger, larger guy on the off chance they might actually win, while the story of Sleeping Beauty teaches us the perils of not inviting witches to the births of our children. In City of Mist, the players are the stories, brought to life; called Rifts, they can do amazing, mind-blowing things, though the mortals of the city refuse to recognize these wonders. Enter Olivia, Zoe, Oggie, and Duke, who are all Rifts, very unhappy with their lives, and incredibly drunk. What wonders will they bring into the world? Probably nothing good, to be honest.
In the world of Dragonia, only dragons exist! From the lowest raw scaled drakes, to the highest of elder dragons, all of Dragonia works together to understand the world, grow, and learn, usually by sending out young drakes on errands. But even the strongest of dragons must mind themselves, lest they fall into Darkness and doom Dragonia and all who live there.
This is the character creation for our Epyllion game, where everyone is dragons! Its super cute and charming!
We decide to forgo the pre-created setting that comes with 13th Age, and instead set about creating our own, using various icons from different 13th Age source books. This is pretty much just character creation stuff, so you can skip this if you don't want to hear us talk about icons and stuff.

The gods are not dead, despite what some mortals claim; no, they're very much alive and kicking in the modern world. Of course, being a god isn't a full time gig anymore, so the gods of today are forced to work part-time, with one foot in the divine and the other in the mundane, balancing their humanity and divinity in an effort to keep themselves centered and rational.
The Knights of Columbus, just one of the many pantheons of modern day gods in the city, are a rag-tag band of individuals; a Goddess of Knowledge rubs shoulders with the God of the Audience, while the Gods of Locks and Taxonomy make deals with the Goddess of the Hunt to protect their territory against other local gods. So far, they've only had to deal with the relatively mundane aspects of godhood, but something under Columbus is awakening, and its none too happy; will the Knights rise to the challenge, or will they fall?

This episode is extra long, with extra jokes, and extra character creation. You've been warned!
