"The Bitch Rule" and Monsterhearts: Modern Queering of Tabletop Games

  1. 1. "The Bitch Rule" and Monsterhearts: Modern Queering of Tabletop Games
  2. 2. “The Bitch Rule” The Bitch Rule is an option that makes a female PC or NPC very moody. DMs may make this a requirement for all females. Other alternatives are making it an insanity, disease, or curse. The Bitch Rule works best for chaotic characters because they seem to have what it takes to work. from For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge: The Complete Guide to AD&D Sex Created for Advanced Dungeons & Dragons by Reid Bluebaugh
  3. 3. “The Bitch Rule” The following are the steps to develop a moody female: • The female character must roll 1d6 every eight waking hours for an attitude. • The female may reroll if a situation has been unusually stressful (i.e. after melee, during an argument, etc.). • Any person who comes in contact with the female (ex. other player characters) may request a reroll once per day. Only one reroll may happen each day. The reroll represents people who influence the female thereby changing her moods (for better or for worse).
  4. 4. “The Bitch Rule” • For a roll of 6 on the table, roll 1d6 again. A 1 indicates an obsessive behavior. Thus, she becomes obsessive about whatever the party is doing at the moment to the point of not letting anyone or thing in her way of trying to accomplish her goal. • Moods • 1 – Happy, cheerful, helpful • 2 – Self-pity, unhelpful, brooding • 3 – Pissed-off, vengeful, cruel • 4 – Playful, energetic, daring, foolhardy • 5 – Vain, proud, lazy, bored, • 6 – Restless, takes control impatient (requires obsession check)
