Thirsty Sword Lesbians new 270+ page supplement provides more sapphic adventures

Back when Thirsty Sword Lesbians from April Kit Walsh came into existence in 2020, it not only demolished its Kickstarter goal – but soared through nearly 50 stretch goals, as well. It was an achievement that got everyone talking, and helped the creators bring in more help and support to work on Thirsty Sword Lesbians, and as we’ve found out, a supplement that’ll make your sapphic adventures even bigger and better.

Titled Advanced Lovers and Lesbians, this 272-page supplement provides a variety of different features to add to your games. Currently it is live on Kickstarter where, at the time of writing, it’s been backed by over 700 people and has already smashed its goal of $15,000.

It’s not hard to see why, there’s a ton of new content for players to look through. For one, there are 10 new playbooks, aka characters which they can look at and select to play as with unique abilities and features that’ll make each playthrough a memorable one. Our personal favourite? The Matriarch, a strong, level-headed character who must weigh the needs of her family, the gang, with that of her own. Sounds complex!

That’s not all though. There’s also 21 new settings for you to explore, with each offering something different than the last. One setting you might be working the docks of High Town, the next you’re actually just a pack of lesbian hyenas. Yeah. Lesbian hyenas.

Much like its predecessor though, this Thirsty Sword Lesbians supplement offers players the chance to explore queerness not just within themselves, but through gameplay and the overarching stories and settings. No matter what, these tales can provide joy, sorrow, and everything in between.

Evil Hat Productions has often prided itself on being a publication that delivers its products fast, so fans of the tabletop RPG won’t have to wait long as a delivery date has been set for March 2022. Plenty of time for you to sit back, read through your Thirsty Sword Lesbians book, and plan a brand new lesbian adventure.
