Why do Magical Girl TRPGs always always seem to be either grimdark or involve court politics or both?

It's because they don't have any young girls in the audience.

It doesn't fit with the mad max aesthetic/themes of environmental degradation and systematic control of resources. It'd be neat somewhere else.

If Beast is part of the NWoD aren't 'Heroes' better handled with H:tV?

Heroes are cartoon villians or out of place good guys. Hunters are generally normalish people.

I heard a horror story about a Rift Supers game run at my old meetup where the characters were caretakers to a superman analogue who was stripped of his powers and left a wheelchair bound, mentally disabled moron. None of them had powers either. There is no limit to how stupidly dark a superhero story can go.

That definitely took a bit for you to circle around. I think there was a point there was supposed to be music and it just goes to silence and then back to the talk? :raise: Also, what about Jolly Rancher Watermelon soda? Because for me that's the worst soda I've ever tasted. Try it sometime! Let me know how awful you think it is. Because watermelon flavor, amirite?

And I'm inclined to think J.U.N.K.H.E.A.D. is now official Rifts canon as far as I'm concerned.

The only really possible way I can see to do this dungeon is to have a way to get the demons on your side with some sort of binding spell or power. They aren't going to give a gently caress about a lot of the traps and maybe a few of Acerak's attacks.

But I'm not sure werewolves have ever been metaphors for substance abuse, unless there's a didactic buffy episode I haven't seen. Mostly it's just suppressed emotions like Jekyll and Hyde. They certainly aren't in any WOD stuff, considering they're dealing with spirits half the time and White Wolf couldn't keep a consistent metaphor to save their lives.

Modrons are pretty drat stupid, there was probably a piece of paper somewhere that said the torture rack had to have x number of victims and the pentadrone was an appropriate choice.

Just got the book and I'm liking what I see, aside from how many times genitalia pops up in the random charts. Imagine the mood of a table when after killing an innocent man, you roll a 16 and your dick falls off.

Edit: seriously dog why is the Demon Lord so obsessed with making dicks fall off, why would you come up with Desires End

E: the aesthetic of this game is primarily masks and dicks

Kinda? It's a bad WOD game, but Mad Scientist is an underrepresented class.

E: actually there's a guy in my star wars game who's playing a Slug-obsessed scientist, and frequently mutters about transfusing slug blood. Might want to be cautious about a whole game for that.

Perhaps you haven't been properly traumatized by the surprising number of RPGs that delight in having magically superior lawbreaking exotics that are either literally or figuratively Romani.

It's a thing and it's dumb.

Even Blue Rose had them. I respect that the pun name 'Roamer' it's very clever but it's never tactful.
