Deeds, not Words
A GM-less game about civil rights activism and the English suffragettes
This is a very simple, narrative game for 2-3h one shots, for three players. It focus on the suffragettes--the radical, violent English group that fought for women's suffrage. They fought the police with jiu-jitsu and clubs, burned buildings, were beaten up and arrested, set bombs, destroyed public property, outsmarted the police using diversions and decoys, gave speeches, and more to achieve their goals.
This game celebrates their work and allows you to play out the lives and struggles of three suffragettes. It's very easy to play regardless of your knowledge of the history of the group (the resulting story doesn't have to be historical, either!). The chapters in the story will be a mix of slice-of-life scenes about their daily struggles, and action scenes about their clashes with the police, anti-suffrage activists, politicians, journalists, and anyone else who opposed the movement.
