Description:

There's a new girl in town and she's perfect. Beautiful, popular without even trying and perfect in every way. She's got every boy (and some girls) wrapped around her finger and it's barely been a week.

You can't place it, but there's something off about her that is off to you. You don't know what it is but you find something about her terrifying and it seems like no one else can see it.

This is a narrative focused, low combat game that the mechanics focus on social interaction and creating the most possible drama. It is also a personal horror game about sexuality and bodies and psychological development.

I do want to specifically invite women and Nonbinary gamers to this game. To make this a more inclusive space there are a few rules I adhere to as a GM

1. A consent tool is in use and available to players at all times. I personally use the Support Flower that's popular in indie hurricane and you can read about it in the resource I linked. It allows players to give me feedback on content and scenarios they enjoy, aren't enthusiastic about or wish me to stop.

2. I provide player cards to identify the pronouns of players and characters if they're not the same.

3. I ask that everyone at the table do their best to use the correct pronouns for both players and characters. Mistakes happen and to keep the gameplay flowing and avoid focusing on an awkward situation as a rule I remind players to correct yourself and keep going. Profusely apologizing makes the interaction about you not the person misgendered.
