Awkward: released

After a long time on the writing desk, I finally released version 1.0 of Awkward [DOWNLOAD IT FROM PATREON], my "New Wave of Italian Freeform" role-playing game of family comedy and misunderstood relationships. It's now yours to play and share with your friends.
In case you spot mistakes or typos, please report them to me, so that I can fix them in an updated document. Your help is very much appreciated!


What’s This About?

Present time, real world, just a regular evening.
There are two characters who are good friends, but – for whatever reason – can’t often spend time together. You’ll give them a name when you play, but in these rules we just reference them as ‘X’ and ‘Y’.
X and Y are both adults, currently single, and they are or at least appear to be (according to the society at large, no matter how they feel themselves) of different genders. There’s no romance going on between them: they’re just good friends.
There are two more characters to this story: X’s parents, whom Y is just about to meet for the first time. For whatever reason (the details are left for the players to establish), both friends are going to spend the night – or possibly multiple nights – at X’s parents’ house. This game is all about the awkwardness of that first evening together, when Y has just arrived and is getting to know X’s family.
It’s awkward because of course the parents are incorrectly assuming that X and Y are actually a couple!
