Being a witch isn’t as fun as it sounds. Sure, there’s flying around on a broomstick, talking to spirits, learning dangerous secrets man was not meant to know, dancing naked under a full moon (if you’re into that sort of thing)… but then, there are people. And they always want your help. If you can fly a broomstick, someone wants you to get their kid’s kite down from a tree. If you’re on a first-name basis with one malevolent spirit, everyone thinks you can exorcise their creaking floorboards. And then there are the constant requests for love potions and messages for dead relatives.
Worse: You’re not the only one with magical powers, and the others range from terrifying creatures from other planes to your fellow witches, who have no idea what they’re doing. Who knows what trouble they could cause, fiddling with the balance of power?
Worst of all: Sometimes, once in a blue moon, you might need their help.
Wool of Bat is a No Dice, No Masters hack where you play a fractious not-coven of witches, and elements of the world they live in. It’s inspired by Terry Pratchett’s Discworld and Tiffany Aching books, but a general knowledge of fairy tales is probably all you need for context.
Platform: Streamyard, with Jitsi or Discord as a backup option. I’ll email a link to the video call beforehand.
Recording: This session will be recorded. With players’ permission, the video and/or audio may be posted publicly afterward. I can obscure your face or cut out content on request.
Attendance: Joining all sessions is recommended but not required. You must RSVP to each session you wish to attend.
Breaks: We’ll aim for a break at the top of each hour, or when requested.
CW: The tone is usually pretty light and humorous, but there’s potential for darker subjects. Especially body horror (turning people into other things), PvP violence, and mind control.
Safety: This game will follow the Gauntlet Community Code of Conduct, and we’ll use Script Change tools and Lines and Veils. There will be at least Veils on torture, sexual assault/coercion, and graphic gore.
