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 and wishes gone wrong. Each player will roleplay as one of the rusałka. You will also take turns portraying the mortals who come to the pool to request help from the rusałka. 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

If you are unable to pay for a copy of Rusałka for whatever reason, you can claim one of the community copies. They are free copies to anyone who would like a copy but finds the cost to be a significant burden. If that's you, then I hope that you enjoy.

If the asking price for the game isn't a significant burden for you, then you should consider paying for a copy of the game. Every copy of Rusałka sold during the Dark of Winter sale opens up a community copy for someone else. So you get a cool game, and you make another copy available to a total stranger.
