it is a separate purchase, yes! at the bottom of the game page you can grab the Expansion Pass, it's $10 for all three Expansions.

As far as I know, not yet! I am planning on putting together a Sword Queen Games discord server but it'll be quite some time before that's set up unfortunately.

Thank you so much!! I just added a few more based on sales and ratings! in case they run out before you can grab one please email me at and I'll send over a download key!

I'm so glad!! I'll try my best to work on the final digital version soon! In the mean time I hope you enjoy the game!

Hello hello! thank you so much for the reminder, I'll go ahead and refresh the community copies! but in case they empty out before you get to it, please email me at and I'll get you a copy! ❤️

I appreciate you asking for a community copy!! ❤️❤️❤️

We haven't had new purchases recently but I'm happy to send you a download key! You can email me at :)

the long term goal is to definitely go to print, but I can't guarantee it'll look like this 😬 I've been told my layout design tends to look great digital but be bad for actual print haha! 

Thank you so much!! You absolutely hit the nail on the head, The Twilight Throne focuses on collaborative political intrigue and moves away from PVP. There are a lot of mechanical incentives to work together, though a few mechanics do encourage healthy competition...

Yeah I think when I started looking at culture with a colonial and post-colonial lens it was absolutely devastating! Working on The Twilight Throne has been very cathartic, while still producing a lot of rich concepts to inspire play!

I'm planning on soon addressing how each House embodies my Strong Post-Colonial Feelings, maybe through a Twitter thread or a blog post? When I do, I'll definitely reply again here and leave a link! Thank you for watching the Actual Play video!

And re: Evil Hat, it's my hope that I'll be able to work with a publisher like them! (Or even Evil Hat themselves!) Please cross your fingers and toes for this game, haha. Everyone's early interest and support definitely helps indie games find the right publishers, so thank you so much <3

Hello! I absolutely understand, I was a D&D GM and player that had a difficult time playing anything that wasn't D&D.

I'm thinking about your concerns and off the top of my head I feel like the best way to really convince a group is to see how into the setting/idea they are, since that's usually what's required to really break a habit like D&D.

I do think that if a GM only introduces the mechanics the players need in the moment (Blades even suggests not using all the mechanics, like position and effect, in the first session) then Forged in the Dark is much easier to pick up. FitD isn't crunchy but it has a lot of optional systems and strategies that lock into place as you like, right?

That being said, why I might end up doing is creating a different game that's set in The Twilight Throne that uses a different set of rules (like Trophy Dark for example), to act as a prequel or sequel (whathaveyou!) and pull the players in that way? But I'll definitely think about what you said and take into consideration as the game further develops!

I definitely want to include advice for beginners though, for both players and GMs!

I do think that you can definitely take a lot from Twilight Throne and use it in any game. Like you can follow the Throne story arc and pick up different cool plot elements (like the House Secrets to empower the human rebellion, or the Houses themselves could feature in your game).

Apologies for the long reply, but it was a good question that I really wanted to answer as best as I could! I really appreciate your interest!

Thank you so much!! ❤️❤️❤️

Thank you for asking!

Technically The Twilight Throne will cover just the absolute basics of Forged in the Dark, so some of the more in-depth things (like why Flashbacks are cool and such) won't be present.

That being said I'm thinking of adding a little more, so that folks won't have to reference two books in order to play this game! It's just a little tricky when things are still relatively in flux for the mechanics...but I'll definitely do my best!

Hi! This is a complete game, but it's not the final version of the game! Completely playable though and I've heard of a lot of folks having fun with the game.

Sword Queen Games is a "brand" in that all the games I create are Sword Queen Games :) Just a fun thing to say!

Hi! Yes they're both exactly the same! Thanks so much for asking :) 

Hello hello!

I'm planning to start up work again on Cozy Town and updating it around Feb next year!

I would have done it sooner but some intense mental health stuff happened around July that took months to recover from, and that slowed down the stretch goals fulfillment. But we should be back on track again soon!

hi! this is the version of the game that came out before the Kickstarter. It has two Incursions (the story of two of the Masks) and is incomplete.

I'm working on the final version (which will include an Incursion for each Mask), and Kickstarter backers will get it first. The Kickstarter is also the only way to get a physical copy of the game :) I hope that answers your question! 

Thank you so much!! I absolutely relate, writing this game was difficult for my grimdark brain too, haha.

Hi Mario!!! Thank you so much, I had way too much fun with the layout, haha.

To answer your questions (and sorry it took so long!):

1. Yes absolutely! As soon as I have the final version done.
2. I've tried quite a few and my favorite so far is the google jamboard!

oh that's SUCH a good idea for a cozy town, I love that so much!!! Can I use this as an example in the final book?

Hello, thanks so much for asking!

The game plays perfectly fine as a duo game actually! It's just always nice to have at least a triangle (is that even the right term) of suggestions and opinions, but honestly I've played this as a duo game and lots of people have to <3 I'll mention such in the final version of the game for sure.

Thank you so much! I'm so glad to hear that, I can absolutely understand that the story is your story <3

omg!!! thank you so much T_____T

thank you so much! I've been meaning to make my games more accessible, I'll start working on a text only version! ❤️

Aw I love this so much!!! 

Thank you so much, I'm so glad this game has been a good experience for you! The Quiet Year is a phenomenal game and absolutely inspiring, I'm so glad you discovered it through Cozy Town!

Ah thank you so much! I had so much fun working on the Setting Elements for Oathbreakers!

Hi Shawn!

I'm still working on the final version of Once More Into The Void, but if you'd like to pre-order it you can get it here:

I'll have to check with Jason if pre-orders immediately unlock the current itchio version, I'll get back to you about that :)

Thank you for catching that! I'll fix that in the next update <3

Aw heck yeah, I hope you all have fun!

Development is coming along but it'll be a while yet till the next version is out! In case you're not familiar with the Belonging Outside Belonging system (also known as No Dice No Masters) you can check out Dream Askew, my other game BALIKBAYAN also has examples. 

I also have a video up of one the playtests (unfortunately the thrilling climax got eaten up by recording/internet issues but I may still upload it in pieces anyway.): 

I'm happy to try to answer any questions you may have tho ❤️

Thank you so much for the kind words! There's even more lovely art coming and I'm so excited for it <3

And yes, I would be absolutely honored if this game was used for teaching! I used to teach too and I lot of what I learned I applied in this game, I'd love to hear how it goes in class.

Hard same actually 😭 but figuring out printing options while I'm in the Philippines is so tough 😅

So sorry for the late reply, and thank you so much for playing! I love this suggestion, I'll take that into account when I update the game, thank you! 

That's a perfectly good question, I'll make it clearer on the main page! If you purchase it now in BETA, you'll have automatic access to the full game later! When I update the game (and raise the price to reflect it), you won't have to pay extra or purchase the game again.

Oh gosh the download text was completely erased, not sure what happened there! 

But I added the URL to the character keeper in the DL files, I just tested it so I think it should work :)

Thank you so much! For the character keeper it's in the download notes, but I'm going to experiment now and try to make it easier to get to!

Absolutely! will drop a comment here when the character keeper's up!

This sounds absolutely wonderful! The tarot is one of my favorite creativity tools, I'm so glad you're enjoying it! ❤️❤️❤️

That sounds absolutely amazing, I'm so happy to read this! Thank you so much, I'm so glad this sincere little game could help you both create coziness for each other ❤️❤️❤️

I somehow missed this comment! Thank you so much for your kind words! ❤️❤️❤️

OMG the power of self-corruption, haha!

Thank you so much for the kind words! T_T
