Front page for Bluebeard's Bride

RPG system: Bluebeard's Bride

Bluebeard’s Bride is a tabletop roleplaying game of supernatural horror set in a familiar fairy tale. The tale starts simply enough: one room in Bluebeard’s house is forbidden to the Bride.

Each player takes on the role of an aspect of the Bride’s psyche—a Sister— who guides the Bride through Bluebeard’s house, armed with little more than a set of keys. Each of you takes turns speaking as these aspects of her psyche would speak, deciding what actions the Bride takes, pushing the Bride deeper into the mysteries of each room, and provoking new horrors along the way.

Bluebeard's Bride is a dark collaborative storytelling game of tragic horror where players control an aspect of The Bride as she explores the wonder and terror of her new home.
