Fanfic: a storytelling game about making bad fiction

I recently created a storytelling game based on the premise of creating awful, erotic fanfiction called Fanfic. The rules PDF is now available for free at game’s website, http://fanficgame.com/. My biggest influences were Ben Lehman’s “Hot Guys Making Out” and Atlas Games’ “Once Upon A Time.”

From the introduction:

Fanfic is a game for collaboratively creating erotic “fan fiction,” naughty fan-created stories inspired by existing works of fiction, and it aims to do it badly. You will explore the deepest sexual desires of characters from your favorite books, television shows, movies and video games. Fanfic strives to emulate everything that is quirky and ultimately endearing about fan fiction: bodice ripping; stilted dialogue; awkward turns of phrase; and improbable coupling. What better way to learn to do it right than to do it oh-so-wrong?

Feel free to share the game with anyone you like. My only request is if you play the game, please send feedback to feedback@fanficgame.com. You can purchase printed copies for $5 with amazing cover art by Wendy Morthorpe (http://mwaters.deviantart.com/gallery/) by sending email to orders@fanficgame.com.

Happy Gaming!
