Star Crossed is a two-player roleplay game about really, really wanting to, when you really, really can’t.
Playing Star Crossed will feel like being pulled in two directions at once–like when your head and heart are telling you two different things, or when what you want and what you believe in are impossible to reconcile. The game is simple, quick, and filled with delicious moments of excitement, tension, and occasional heartbreak.
In Star Crossed, you and your fellow player will craft characters who are powerfully attracted to each other, but have a compelling reason not to act on their feelings. You’ll watch the attraction between them grow as you play out scenes, taking turns describing what your character says and does. Some of the things you’ll want your character to do are going to increase that attraction—and when that happens, you are going to pull a brick out from an increasingly shaky tower and place it on the top.
If the tower falls, your characters act on their feelings! You decide what happens; the rules will tell you what that means. How many bricks you’ve pulled will help determine if your love is doomed, triumphant, or something in-between.
