"Doubt Comes In" is a two player game inspired by Hadestown (and in turn the myth of Orpheus' efforts to retrieve Eurydice from the Underworld). It follows a flexible but well-defined structure, with players taking turns answering questions and playing short scenes together to set up the relationship between the Singer (as in Orpheus) and the Lover (as in Eurydice). It all leads to an endgame with a slightly different but still painful choice for the Singer's player- a defined and familiar tragic ending or an ending that might be happier and might not but which they can never know about.  Short, with minimal but functional layout. Definitely worth a look.

This is a collection of ten evocative NPCs and the implied setting they live in for Troika, one of the best and weirdest OSR-inspired RPGs (and which is itself also available in the gigantic Racial Justice bundle!). Charming collage artwork and engaging writing. These NPCs that are super fun and easily usable for a campaign/one-shot without being mere simplistic adventure hooks. Features a mushroom mercenary with a tender heart, a talking hedge-maze who hears your thoughts, an excitable beetle librarian, and a bird thief who excels at playing the fool, along with six comparably oddball others.

"Have I Been Good?" calls itself a LARP for two players, one of whom is a dog. Functionally, it's more like a day-long ritual alternating between writing and activity to get you briefly inside of your dog's head. It seems to be inspired by that Tumblr post about how we seem like immortal creatures to the dogs who love us and share our lives (which is not so original an idea that it couldn't be convergent or inspired by other expressions of that idea). Made me cry just reading it (as the tumblr thing did). Seems like it would probably be fun and moving to play, tho, and I plan on giving it a try when I have a full free day with my good boy Jasper. 

Gives me complicated feelings about the limits of imagination and empathy, the dangers of storytelling, the autonomy of sentience and suffering and the merits of anthropomorphism that I haven't sorted out in my head enough to expound on.
