  • Simple rules to do what magic swords can do.
  • A GM-side sheet to generate the Warden, prison, security features and what the team needs to escape.
  • BONUS content including tables for a secret backstories, plot twists and Complications the Warden has planned for you.

A pleasant little hack of Grant Howitt's Honey Heist, with a couple of nice twists. 

Folks, this is a fun goddamned game. It's a bit manic, incredibly joyful, and looks to be a rollicking good time to play as well as read. Pick it up!
