Princesses Released on the DM's Guild

A while ago, my friend Ibsen approached me asking for feedback on a game he was thinking of running. The idea? Every player took on the role of a Princess inspired by the Disney princesses. He had entries written.

I gave him some feedback to make them more balanced and tightened the rules on some. After a round or two of back and forth, I presented him with the idea of publishing a book. His ideas were solid and a few half-formed images formed in my own mind.

Long story short, we went back and forth on each of them discussing their racial features, which of the princesses we wanted to include in the book, which to leave for a second book, how to balance them with each other, in short, we went through everything about them.

Another big topic: Disney version or Original version...


In the end, we went with a "middle of the road" approach that takes from both sides, using whatever feature would make the princess at once unique, interesting, and able to represent either version (or close enough).

What we came up with is a book much bigger than I initially thought: 25 pages (20 pages of new, unique content).
- 8 new races including Cinderella, Rapunzel and Snow White.
- 6 new monsters like the Big Bad Wolf, the Dragon Witch, and the Wicked Witch.
- New and unique art for each race by Ibsen and Blehc.
- New character background and magic items.

Ibsen being an amazing artist, he started on the art and I focused on the writing, expanding, and completing the early drafts.

It is with great joy that I can finally announce the release of Princesses on the DM's Guild. Check it out let us know what you think! .
