Hearts of Magic: Threads Entangled RPG Up On Kickstarter

Fey courts. They make the world of Jane Austen seem like a cakewalk. And it's into this world where you find yourself in Hearts of Magic: Threads Entangled. Ally with your enemies. Hate your lovers. Love your haters. Take all those nice strands and just knot them up as much as possible. The game is up on Kickstarter now.

From the campaign:

Based on the incredible Mobile Frame Zero: Firebrands by Vincent and Meguey Baker, Hearts of Magic: Threads Entangled is a game about the messy lives of fantasy mages in a City charged with magic. Tell the story of the people of The City as they fight, flirt, and steal time together amid a tense and escalating conflict.

The witch Fyrestryke holds her wand, white-hot with Magic, pointed at the Auditor-Librarian. "Why have you come here?"
Auditor Page looks down, embarrassed. "After I saw your face, I... had to meet you."
The flash of Fyrestryke's magic dissipating hides the blush on her cheeks.

Play as the Lords and Ladies, the fey noble families of the city, using the fey magic of promises, prophecies, and glamours; The Order, using the arcane techniques of ritual,  patterns, and the careful and esoteric arrangement of mundane items; or The Witches, teaching The City to channel raw magic and weave powerful spells.

The Game

The object of the game is to create messy entanglements. Fall in love with your enemies, ally with your rivals, fight with your friends. Players will create characters, establish their situations in solitaire scenes, and build scenes using the ten included games. Rules are lightweight and simple, and give you all the tools you need to establish and play scenes, even if improvising dialogue is not your strongest skill.

The campaign's about halfway funded with 23 days left to go.
