The Scaredy Cat is a nervous wreck, wracked with anxiety. Some of their fears are founded, some not so much, but who knows whether that sound was just a book falling off a shelf, or an AXE MURDERER?

Their central conflict revolves around facing their fears, and though they might prefer to run and hide when danger or difficult conversations rear their head, that makes it all the sweeter when they find a reason to stand their ground.

What if Shaggy and Scooby Doo were sword lesbians? What if Bernadetta von Varley and Hitoka Yachi were catgirls? These are the very important questions that I set out to answer, and now you too can experience the terror of... well just about everything, really. 

The Scaredy Cat is an additional playbook for the Thirsty Sword Lesbians roleplaying game by April Kit Walsh and published by Evil Hat Productions - you will need a copy of Thirsty Sword Lesbians in order to use this playbook.

Playbook art is the Catgirl Lolita Maid sprite by AnankeKeirin, with an alternate “scared tail” by Valis Teoh. Background art on the cover is from the New Baroque Palace Pack by Rachel Chen. If you're interested in making your own playbook and want art on a budget, I absolutely encourage you to check out their work, as well as the work of other artists selling visual novel sprites on itch.io! 

Thanks to Pat McCabe, Michelle Jones, Irene Bloodrose, Christie R. Fremon, April Kit Walsh, Al Cusack, and Lex Rayne for playtesting, brainstorming, or otherwise helping me develop this playbook!

This playbook is also still being playtested and revised, so you may occasionally get updated PDFs at no additional cost - that said, I don't anticipate any major changes. If you play the Scaredy Cat in a game, shoot me a message on twitter @Lexi_the_Fae, I'd love to hear about how it went!
