The Watch is a low-fantasy game (Powered by the Apocalypse) about women and other feminine-of-centre people who are fighting to retake their homeland from the Shadow, a darkly sorcerous threat that has the power to possess men and use them for its own violent ends. So much has already been lost to the Shadow: land, loved ones, and traditions. But your people have come together and formed a new fighting force—called the Watch—from those able to resist the Shadow.
The stories of The Watch are structured around the military campaign against the Shadow’s forces. You will tell stories of war, love, and sacrifice as your characters fight to hang on to what they have left.
Note from Mallory: Powered by the Apocalypse games are usually super easy to learn while playing, and great rpgs for players interested in branching out from D&D or learning new games.
