Players: Joe, Megan, Rob, Todd
This is our first session of Avery McDaldno’s Monsterhearts. We explain the game early on, so if you’re not familiar with it, you’ll get a nice little summary of it.
A quick note: Monsterhearts is a pretty R-rated game, so let me definitely say that this is NSFW and there is some antisocial behavior portrayed in our game (as with most games of MH!). This session is fairly tame compared to some coming up, but I do want to mention a few things. In particular, in this session, we have some sexist language and implications (a character explaining how to pick up girls to his younger brother) as well as some content discussing racism (no slurs or anything like that, but we discuss how the racism of the town we live in affects one of the few black teenagers at the school). This, along with some violence, bullying, and sex. So if any of this would be triggering for you, be warned in advance.
Please refer to our interview with Avery for a discussion on the politics of Monsterhearts if that would be interesting to you and help you put some of the anti-social, kids-being-kind-of-crappy themes of Monsterhearts in a context.
