Révolution - RPG
A downloadable game
Révolution gives us politicians and detectives; mobs and weddings; cults
and catholics; orphans rising to lead armies or command demons; the sounds
of battle in the streets of Paris; the smell of gunpowder and alcohol; the feel
of a knife in your back; asking “What do you do next?”
In Révolution you play as a powerful person in Paris during the French Revolution. You and your fellows are constantly fighting for prime position within the Parisian political landscape, even as that landscape crumbles around you. Play to find out if the police betray the crown to their doom, or if the secret cult of an eldritch god manages to infiltrate Robespierre's tyrannical committee.
What you need
This is a game for 3 to 5 players. You will need enough paper and writing utensils for all players, and a single Tarot deck to share amongst the table. You can purchase a Tarot deck from many game or occultism stores.
Playing RPGs online can be difficult at the best of times. To try and help facilitate online play, you can use the provided Révolution Character Keeper and premade PlayingCards.io room to take some of the stress out of facilitating an online game. Instructions on using a character keeper can be found here, and instructions on uploading a PCIO room can be found here.
This game runs on the Belonging Outside Belonging system as designed by Benjamin Rosenbaum (@ben_rosenbaum) and Avery Alder (@lackingceremony). This is a GM-full, token based system where players have to put themselves into bad situations to earn tokens, and then use those tokens to dig themselves back out.
This game, like many other games that deal with player vs player conflict, politics, demonic worship, sex, and backstabbing, may be disturbing or traumatizing for some people.
