What Is this Book?
Thirsty Sword Lesbians is a rolepaying game for telling queer stories with friends. If you love angsty disaster lesbians with swords, you’ve come to the right place.
Even if you have never played a roleplaying game, this book contains everything you need to learn how to play and run the game, including some scenarios to get you started and guidance on how to create your own romantic adventure.
A roleplaying game is essentially a game of improvisation and storytelling, with some rules to help you and your friends enjoy yourselves.
One person plays the role of the Gaymaster (GM) and the others each play an individual Player Character (PC). You’re all telling a story together, and the GM and PCs have different roles.
The GM presents the world and scenario and moderates the conversation at the table. They introduce challenges for the characters and narrate for all the people in the fiction who aren’t PCs (the Nonplayer Characters, or NPCs).
The other players describe or act out the actions of their PCs and help the GM make sure everyone gets the opportunity to shine.
The rules in this book are here to help prompt your creativity, share the spotlight among the players, and provide unexpected twists.
