What's it about?

A micro RPG where you play  adorable, magical bees that  normally save the world, but now  it's vacation time!

Create your team, create your character and your magical transformation accessories, the get set for a well deserved vacation!

Of course, things aren't that simple. Working with the GM, you'll set the stage for a magical guardian-style entanglement with your arch nemesis!

What are the mechanics?

This game utilizes a mix of d6s and d8s to create dice pools based on your attributes and actions. Each die can be a failure or a success and they cancel one another out. If you roll more successes than failures, you succeed at your task, and visa versa, but depending on how much you succeed/fail, you can get Boons or Costs added to your result!

If your total comes up to be exactly zero, then you unlock a Stinger. This gives you some magical insight on the scene and one more chance to succeed with a Cost or fail with a Boon!

This system is inspired by a combination of Powered by the Apocalypse success bands as well as Love and Justice by Phil Vecchione and Senda Linaugh. It's designed for quick resolution and creativity when combining your attributes and powers to create your dice pools.

How does it play?

Magical Bee-ch Episode is a game designed for one shots, quick 2 to 4 hour sessions with 2 to 6 players. One of the players will take the role of the Game Master, the person who runs the story and all the characters that aren't controlled by the other players. The other players create the protagonists, magical bees that transform into powerful, if not tiny, guardians of love and all things sweet.

During play, you will interact with other small insects, small animals, and maybe even some understanding humans while trying to enjoy a vacation with your friends. The game will quickly throw a twist at you, eventually resulting in a battle between your transformed magical forms and either your arch nemesis or their underlings. After using your group's final attack, the game ends and guides you through some denouement, wrapping up the session.
