If the punk band the Runsways wrote an RPG, this would be it!

A love gamebooks that are artistically beautiful, but this game is more than that, it says something about what's going on in the world along with simple rules.

If you want something different, fun, and meaty then this is the game for you.

My girlfriend isn't into medieval fantasy. She hated Game of Thrones and Lord of the rings, and I've been spending a lot of time looking for something TTRPG related for her. She does like modern fantastic media like Discovery of witches, Orphan Balck, Marvel movies, and Supernatural. I heard of Hexengeddon, and I thought I would give it a look before handing it over to her.

The best way I can describe it is if Tank Girl or the girl from "Girl with a dragon Tatto" were witches in modern times fighting against the Proud Boys and Oathkeepers and whatever other right-wing group out there, including the religious right. This game isn't for everyone. The fact is, I can see this game angering a lot of people. But the publisher knows this and makes a point of saying that's cool with them.

If Warhammer is a far-right fascist fantasy, this is the Left's answer to it.

The rules of the game are simple and great for new players. Sometimes they repeat themselves and I'm not sure if that's an editing mistake or them just making sure you know. The system reminds me a lot of Shadowrun only, streamlined in the best way while allowing for adaption based on the person running the game. You roll X amount of dice with X being an attribute number or Attribute number plus something. There are also Dice pools for more common rolls in combat. You roll against other dice rolls or a set number of needed successes.

Character generation is crazy big and point-based. There are fifteen types of witches ranging from the Magic item-making Articerfix to the Harley Quinn with magic Muse of Chaos, Gloomy Persephones, and Fairy Tale Queen type Reginas. Each one has starting attributes and powers.

You then choose a Matron for the witch, this is like a Dnd Cleric choosing a deity to grant minor abilities. There are a lot of Matrons, and my girlfriend pointed out to me, that Elsa from Frozen is just a Regina with a Winter-Matron.

You purchase skills, Purchase special benefits for characters, choose drawbacks for extra points, and then purchase magic.

The magic system is simple and very open-ended without being too simple and too open-ended. You don't buy spells you buy ranks in a magic type such as Nature. How many ranks you have in the type limits what you can do with that type including range, duration and effects but you can do a lot with a few ranks, and if your imagination is up to it, you can have access to dozens of 'spells" with a starting character. Magic types are ranked 1-10.

Lastly, you buy "Swag" or equipment and other things that help the witch. Your swag is ranked with higher ranked swag being better. I and my girlfriend both loved the fact you don't have to keep track of trivial things just the important ones.

The game itself is beautiful with Black pages and bright lettering, and art. The layout is simple but fun. Again there are a few editing issues, but nothing more than you'll find in most TTRPGs. Another plus is it provides a beginning adventure, lots of world information, and sample bad guys and friends. It's a one-stop shopping kind of core rulebook.

Again, This game isn't for everyone, but I like it, My girlfriend likes it and we're currently putting together a group to play it.
