A comedic storytelling game inspired by the story of St. Guinefort. You and your friends tell the story of a saintly animal (a doggo or any preferred species), and try to get them canonised. The more outrageous the life story of the animal is and the miracle they perform, the better the chance they get to be a saint by the end. I love the jocular writing and the funny examples in this game.
The Hagiography of St. Doggo
A downloadable game
Inspired by the story of St. Guinefort–the frequently suppressed hound-saint of infants–The Hagiography of St. Doggo is a gmless story game in which you narrate the vita of an animal who is also–maybe–a Saint, toward the end of having them Canonized.
This game requires as many d6 as you are comfortable wielding. It contains a single non-graphic violence toward a dog in the retelling of a medieval story (it is unfortunate that one must die to become a Saint) and some business about beaver genitals as learned (learned) from Physiologus.
Now available in a generous French translation from one Alex.
