A downloadable one-page RPG
A while ago, you and your friends used your witchcraft to make a Deal with a Devil. Whether you struck the deal last week or last century, the Devil is coming to collect, and soon. When they do, that’s it for you. But here’s the thing: You never actually did what you made the bargain for! Can you get out of the deal and still accomplish your goal? The clock is ticking…
This is a Howittesque one-page RPG inspired by the German legend of Faust and his deal with the devil Mephistopheles. The players are a group of demonologists or witches who have made a deal with a random Devil. They must try to accomplish the goal for which they made the deal in the first place while also trying to get out of the arrangement.
