Dandies & Dandyzettes: A Regency Role-playing Game


Four years ago, the good people at Storybrewers released “Good Society: A Jane Austen RPG” (and an expansion October 2021). But who knew that Jane Austen and her world would make for such delightful acquaintance that another RPG would arrive?

Well dear readers, that is exactly what has happened.

Cassidy Percoco, the creator of “Dandies & Dandyzettes: Being a role-playing game set in Regency England” reached out to me last week to let me know the game was now available on Kickstarter (and it’s also arrived at its first stretch goal! Congrats Cassidy!) and of course I snapped up a pledge.

From the Kickstarter:

Welcome to Regency England!

Dandies and Dandyzettes is set in Great Britain at the end of the reign of George III. The once-hearty monarch is ailing, locked away in Windsor Castle while his son, the Prince Regent, holds the throne in his place. Players inhabit the roles of members of the gentry and aristocracy, moving through society in order to improve their individual or family standing or to gain their own more personal goals. 

This is essentially a social game, focused on character interaction and telling a story, and therefore there is not necessarily an equivalent of the traditional combat-based dungeon crawl or quest.

Sounds like the perfect game to play at your next JASNA meeting!

Good Society: A Jane Austen RPG

Story Brewers: Good Society

Back in September, I wrote about Polite Society, a tabletop game that was Kickstarted to much success. Now comes Good Society: A Jane Austen RPG which is another tabletop game done by StoryBrewers, another game company out of Australia.

According to the Kickstarter,

Good Society is a collaborative roleplaying game that seeks to capture the heart, and the countenance, of Jane Austen’s work. It is a game of balls, estates, sly glances, and turns about the garden.

Underneath this, just as Austen’s own work, it is a game of social ambition, family obligation and breathtaking, heart stopping and deeply repressed longing.

Good Society is currently live on Kickstarter and backing, which ends on March 5, 2018, and has currently, widely, surpassed their funding goal. The date set for release is October 2018.
