Common Sense & Sensibility: A Regency Lady TTRPG


“It is exceedingly well known that the life of a lady is far from easy. Death raises its grisly visage at every turn: whether from shawl insufficiency or too many novels, a Regency-era lady can never be too cautious.”

In this TTRPG character funnel, Regency ladies will test their delicate mettle and try to stay alive. This handbook lays out the game’s core rules, character creation instructions, and a list of the surprisingly mundane events that can test a lady’s constitution.

The Three Most Popular Blog Posts This Month

Adventure Queers

“Dana Ebert (she/her) is an openly bisexual and transgender author, game designer, and voice actor, best known for her contributions to Pathfinder 2e and Starfinder. Dana created Pathfinder’s first canonical in-world gender affirmation clinic (also boutique and day spa!), and some of her other works include OGL 5e-compatible content.

D&D and Tabletop Games

D&D Advice Column

“The good news is, there are lot of friendly queer spaces online and IRL. Start with some of the groups that you are already a part of: Are you in a book club? Do you have a nerdy group chat? It doesn’t hurt to ask them if anyone wants to try a one-off game of D&D. You might be surprised at who has a secret history with role playing games.”

Tabletop and Video Games

Dragon Age Inquisition

The Dragon Age series are games based in a world that is rich with detail, filled with complicated characters and gut-wrenching moral quandaries. They’re addictive, and if you’re anything like me, your interest didn’t stop when the game ended. Luckily for all of us, there are several excellent podcasts that will let you continue living in Thedas long after you’ve finished your fifth play through!”
