Princess World: Frontier Kingdoms
A downloadable game
The controlled lands of Princess World are relatively small, an
island of order amidst an ocean of chaotic wild energy. Princesses
are those who through legacy, effort or accident can channel this
energy. They're part magical girl and part demigod-avatar and part
regular teenager in way over their head.
You're one of them. You recently graduated Princess Academy and for whatever reason someone gave you responsibility for a frontier kingdom, a tiny hard-won bubble of stabilised chaos at the very edge of the known kingdoms, surrounded by temperamental shields, pressed right up against the shifting wild lands with all of its monsters and elementals and raw magic and absolute uncertainty.
It's yours, princess. Yours to build into something stable and lasting. Yours to defend against the dangers of this strange and wondrous world. Yours to prove worthy of ... or yours to fail.
Princess World: Frontier Kingdoms is a tabletop roleplaying game based on the Forged in the Dark framework, intended for a group of 2 - 5 players. It's a sequel (of sorts) to Academy Adventures, although you don't need to be familiar with that game to enjoy this one.
The tone is fluffy but weighty, like a lead marshmallow. In Princess World magic is everywhere and princesses wield great power with relative ease, but people are still people and feelings are still feelings. Actions have consequences, entropy must constantly be fought, and even if the power of friendship is a quantifiable force it won't necessarily conquer all. If you're excited by the idea of characters exchanging barbed pleasantries at a party one moment and facing down enormous monsters in a shower of heart-shaped sparkles the next, this might just be the game for you.
If you'd like to get an idea of how it all comes together at the table, here's a replay of a playtest campaign: ShadowMint.
The first Princess World: Frontier Kingdoms sourcebook, Frontier Society, contains rules for attending and hosting parties and princess fighting tournaments, includes greatly expanded information on each faction with a frontier focus, and has an extended example of a frontier princess party.
