The Outsider is from a completely different world than the one they are in now. Maybe they are from a place where this world is a dating sim they played once, or maybe they were frozen and woke up a hundred years later in a completely different reality. The point is that nothing around them is familiar. 

The Outsider is a Thirsty Sword Lesbians fan playbook for anyone looking to play their favorite Isekai protagonist! You play as someone out of place in whatever world/setting your game takes place in. Perhaps you are an out of place time-traveler, or perhaps you crossed over from a different reality, or maybe you just died and woke up here. Whatever the case is you central conflict comes from your desire to return to you normal life being pitted against the excitement of this new world you find yourself in.

Included in the Outsider Playbook is

  • 3 Archetype Examples to choose from to play as the Outsider
  • A Full Playbook compatible with Thirsty Sword Lesbians
  • A GM Guide to GMing the Outsider along with a chart with examples of different plots and relationships
  • And Optional rules for Bare Your Heart and a Shatter for Diceless Dueling
  • And Pretty Art Done By Yours Truly!

I set it at $5 dollars but if you can't afford that please message me on twitter @Tailsgod and I will send you a copy!

I will also be sure to make available any future updates and fixes that I make to the playbook for all those who purchase it!
