soloing the wandering gargoyle dungeon forest using magisk tjej

im going to make a magical schoolgirl character using the zine Magisk Tjej, written by Jennifer Unpleasant.

im just going to start with a single character. i wont make any hacks to the rules during character creation or gameplay (i think people sometimes give their players 'boosts' when playing games that aren't designed to be solo games, but i never do that).

i am going to use this character to play Wandering Gargoyle Dungeon Forest, written by Sean Richer.

if and/or when needed i will use an oracle sheet designed by Perplexing Ruins

Magisk Tjej is a mork borg hack about delinquent school girls and the demons they fight.

i'll share a bit of the character creation process for Magisk Tjej now

what kind of school do you skip?


what year are you you?


what adult and unladylike vice do you have?


are you brand faithful or agnostic?

i'm faithful to a specific brand still being made

your delinquent weapon?

a chain (d8)

your magical girl weapon?

chalice (1d6)

your adorable yet creepy mascot?

rodent-like. ends every sentence with "chuu." fascinated with explosions.

your reason for being a delinquent?

your parents suck ass

ok now for my stats

north cold, earth, winter = 0

east moist, fire, spring = 0

south hot, air, summer = -1

west dry, water, autumn = 0

my grief is 2

every magical girl starts with tier 1 armor (-d2)

i have named her Juanita Diaz, her closest friends and family call her Janie, and her rodent-like mascot is a rat named Blinker.

last weekend she became best friends with a new student that moved into her neighborhood

her name is Anya Ken'Darek

sunday night Juanita and Anya were drinking beer at Juanita's cousin's shed, behind their house, they witnessed a meteor flying through the sky, and it crash into the next town.

Anya Ken'Darek wasn't in class monday

search parties raked the forest to find Anya Ken'Darek

she wasn't in class on tuesday

the search parties grew, and the best hunting dogs were used, but still no Anya Ken'Darek

now it's wednesday and Juanita Diaz is skipping school

(i roll on the weather table included in wandering gargoyle dungeon forest.)

it's a complete downpour, it's pouring rain. everything is wet and slippery.

Juanita swings her Loopy Lines SUPERBREAK JanSport around to her chest, unzips the large pocket, and gets her umbrella out.

Blinker is holding Juanita's shoulders. Blinker tries to see something interesting through the downpour along the road. 

(i ask the oracle if there are cars on the road. "yes, but a mildly negative twist," the oracle says.)

there are a bunch of cars driving up and down the road right now. we will walk as far off to the side of the road as we can in the direction of the forest.

it's hard to see with the rain but eventually, we see the exit to the forest.

it's long after that before Juanita realizes she should already see the tree line from this distance. 

(as we enter a new location we will roll on the weather table again.)

the complete downpour is still pouring rain. everything is wet and slippery.

Blinker says "lemme take a look around chuu", Juanita sets her down.

(i'll consult the oracle to see what the empty forest floor looks like... "is there a huge gaping hole where the forest once was?" i rolled the dice; the oracle said, "yes, and a mildly positive twist, i rolled on a table on the oracle sheet and we will introduce a new npc.")

There's a huge gaping hole in the field now where the forest used to be. 

Blinker "oh, someone is coming, chuu," Juanita turns around and sees the headlights of a vehicle headed towards her, it's still dark in the early mornings this time of year. 

The truck stops (i roll all of the dice i have been using [3d6+1d4+1d3+1d8+1d12+1d10=28]) 28' from Juanita and Blinker.

an angry gentleman wearing all black clothes inside the truck shuts the engine off, steps out, and approaches the party.

"All them damn trees are gone. I had to see it myself."

"Us too," Janiata says, picking up Blinker.

("does the guy say anything about how Janita should be in school," i ask the oracle. "no," the oracle says.)

"Can you give us a ride to the next town?"

(i roll on the morale table from Magisk Tjej, he's indifferent.)

He looks kinda angrily at Juanita.

"Call A24. All us people who cut these trees for lumber just lost all our lumber and all our jobs."

"I'll give you two dollas if you drive us to Unpleasanton (the next town over). It's my lucky bill."

everyone gets in the truck. they take a short drive to the next town. the man introduces himself as Lightning Jones when he asks Juanita for the cash.


(roll on the weather table)

as they drive down the only main street of Unpleasanton, the weather clears up. 

(i ask the oracle if the street is busy now we are at the strip, the oracle tells me it's really busy in the worst way)

(im going to alter the scene using the oracle, "NPC acts suddenly")

(i rolled for a symbol from the orcale and got "burial")

Lightning Jones slams on the breaks. the truck slides a little. 

"It's a burial parade ritual of (roll on oracle table) adventurers," he says as they dance across the town square. 

"What does that mean?" Juanita asks.

"It looks cool chuu," Blinker says.

"That's Rex," Lightning Jones points to a large man dancing with a hammer, "The town leader. You never been to Unpleasanton right? There's the BBQ joint. Whatchu gun do here anyway," says Lightning Jones. 

"Well are you going to call A24 or do I have to? My friend is missing. I'm here to find Anya Ken'Darek." She leaves the passenger door open and walks into the BBQ shop.

(i ask the oracle if Lightning Jones mentions the cauldron? nope.)

here is the soundtrack of the session


the hand-jay, an enemy for troika!

A Hand-Jay's main threats are the loss of wetlands due to developments, but also bobcats (they say it tastes like chicken), poisons, and pesticides. When a left Hand-Jay finds a right Hand-Jay, they shake hands and mate for life. 

stamina 8
initiative 4
armor 0
damage as small beast or weapon
special: may cast brittle twigs (Troika Numinous Edition pg. 59 or find it here)

1. angrily circling above, ready to swoop down
2. worrying about its 'future' as a 'species'
3. stretching its neck to look around better for shit to steal

I would like someone to spray paint Hand-Jays on buildings for me in the style of my 'art'.
