Virgins & Vixens

Rewriting Women’s Roles in Mythology, Folklore and Fairytales

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! 

Players start out as one of 8 classic women archetypes found in folklore, fairy tales and mythology around the world. These archetypes have severe limitations – just like the one-dimensional tropes of women found in these types of stories. Through game-play mechanics like Defiance Rolls and collecting Empowerments, the players break out of these constraints and rewrite the tale of their character!

  • All ages: Simple mechanics are easy for children to understand
  • Designed for Narrator (GM) & 1-4 players
  • Narrative game design encourages creativity and role-play
  • Short 10 page booklet has a Narrator’s Guide, PDF works with text-to-speech, and is searchable on digital devices

This game is a stand-alone tabletop role-playing game. Everything you need to play is included in the download, except for dice.
