Monsterhearts 2

Monsterhearts 2 is the second edition of Monsterhearts by Avery Alder . It’s a modern classic about supernatural romance, awkward adolescence, and queer lives.

Players take the role of a young person who is also empowered by some dark side to themselves. Maybe you’re a werewolf, a vampire, from the fae, or violently popular. In any case, the mechanics present these characters with all their power as metaphors for messy lives, and messy lives make drama.

The second edition is more player-friendly with some streamlined mechanics, more GM-friendly with clearer guidelines, and just generally friendly with its new rules and advice for asexuality, race, and other topics.


Cecille is played by special guest Ragny.

Dennis is played by Grant.

Kayla is played by Arden.

Minerva is played by Poorweather.

Our GM is DeviousVacuum.
