The Rules

Perils & Princesses

is a tabletop role-playing game about Fairy Tale Princesses using their humble kind of magic to guide them as they face harrowing perils and untold adventure.

Mechanically, This game is a stand-along TTRPG that follows in the footsteps of some great creators in the NSR and OSR spaces. Lots of inspiration was taken from The GLOG, The Black Hack, Mausritter, Cairn, Into The Odd and others to create a Gritty Pretty fairy tale adventure game all it's own.

Tests of Virtue

Haunted forests, Fae glens, Decaying dungeons. These Dark Scary places are uncertain and treacherous. Luckily Princesses are especially equipped to face these perils.

Three base attributes define the core of every character:


Ability to fight in the face of terror. Channeling your emotions into physical
actions. Being brave and enduring pain. Using a sword.


Poise under pressure. Ability to move deftly through challenges. Carefully navigating social and natural hazards.


Mental toughness, Being resourceful with your knowledge of the world and having the emotional will to tap into your inner magic.
