Embrace the power of your true self and defy an oppressive society in Girl by Moonlight!

This multi-genre roleplaying game explores the heartbreak of denying who you really are, the struggle of fighting for what you believe in and the transcendent power of building relationships as you embrace your true self.

Using the rules of the highly-acclaimed Blades in the Dark, Girl by Moonlight creates a unique play experience that represents the breadth of the magical girl genre. It offers four Series Playsets to cover a variety of stories, including:

  • At The Brink of The Abyss focuses on heroic magical girls who fight to reclaim a corrupted world– inspired by Sailor Moon and Steven Universe.
  • Beneath A Rotting Sky deals with tragedy and betrayal where magical girls are doomed to an inevitable fate– inspired by Puella Magi Madoka Magica.
  • On A Sea of Stars features mecha pilots struggling against extinction at the hands of the Leviathans– inspired by Diebuster and The Vision of Escaflowne.
  • In A Maze of Dreams draws on both Serial Experiments Lain and Paprika. Its central themes are desire, mass culture and ideas developing a life of their own.
