"Mermaids used to live in harmony with nature and, for the most parts, humans. Sure, homo sapiens sapiens was both nutritious and easy to charm, but mermaids held no animosity towards their prey. In the last century, though, everything changed: oil spills, plastics, whole species of plants and animals eradicated, what was one day an underwater paradise began to look like a wet wasteland. Mermaid population began to shrink and the remaining ones moved to further removed regions, where humans and their trash could not find them.

In the anarchist society of mermaids emerged harsh discussions: should they wage an actual war against humanity to defend their ecosystem? Some individuals insist that not all humans are at fault, but this opinion is getting less and less popular as the marine animals die out."

- Excerpt from the introduction

In this game for 3-5 players + 1 game master, you'll play mermaids struggling with these evolutions. How will you save your paradise? You will have to figure that out as a group!

Content warning:

This game deals with themes of capitalism and ecology. In this context (climate change, sea pollution...), mermaids can be strongly against humans (who also happen to be delicious meals). Be prepared for something maybe a little dark (altough we included absolutely no gore), especially against wealthy humans who are the main polluters.

This game contains paintings of mermaids’ breasts. We do not believe that female chests should be sexualized, and the pictures are in no way erotic.

What this includes:

  • The 10-page rulebook, in all its colorful and illustrated glory (although you may have trouble seeing that glory if you use Mozilla Firefox as your PDF reader... I'm experiencing some visual problems myself)
  • The character sheet (2 pages, black and white)
  • When we publish the (first?) scenario, you'll have access to it as well

This game was made for the jam Myths, Fables, and Folklore TTRPG Jam hosted by Lucky Newt Games. It was created by Meiko (find them here or here) and Tellington (you're on my page!) in October 2023.
