A game that examines the roles of women in traditional folklore and rewrites them. I love both the mechanics and the message it carries. The mechanics is a simple 3D6 pick highest/lowest depending on your descriptors. A character starts with descriptors that fit their traditional gender roles, but they get to replace them with new ones as they act defiant to the roles assigned to them. It is a beautiful and thought-provoking game!

A Tabletop Role-Playing Game by Golden Lasso Games
At a time in history when women are striving to be seen as equals, it is crucial that we recognize the flaws in our oral traditions and strive to improve how women are portrayed. Virgins & Vixens gives players the opportunity to reshape the women in folklore and create new ideas about how women can behave... maybe saving the day in the process!
