On the night of the full moon, the rusałka dance by the edge of their enchanted pool. On these nights, people from the village come to ask their aid. The rusałka possess many strange magical talents, but the gifts they grant rarely turn out the way the petitioners hoped. 

Rusałka is a storytelling game for  3-6 players about tragic fairy tales, self discovery, and wishes gone wrong. Each player will roleplay as one of the rusałka, the spirits of women that drowned in a mystic pond. As you play, you discover who your rusałka was in life. You will also take turns portraying the desperate mortals who request the help of the rusałka, though asking may dangerous and unpredictable. Playing the game should take 2-4 hours.

"Nick Wedig’s game Rusałka is super great and I love it [...] This is a very focused monkey’s paw of a game - you will play people who really need things, and you will also play the cruel supernatural monsters who will give them precisely what they ask for."

—Jason Morningstar, Bully Pulpit Games
