Playing the Game

Living your anime TTRPG dreams is a matter of rolling up a witch’s apprentice of your own. And, of course, finding a GM to take on the role of storyteller and witch! Running the game takes a lot of work, but it’s also an exciting opportunity to steer the story for your friends.

With its own bespoke fantasy setting, Fledge Witch gives you plenty of room to design your own witch and set up lesson plans for your apprentices. Sheets help you plan out each session, which should take a couple of hours. If you have a good group, you can string several sessions together into a large campaign and watch your witch apprentices master their magic! Notably, you’re encouraged to create your own aspects of the setting to make things the best they can be for your particular group.
