Monsters & Microphones is a tabletop role-playing game for 2 or more players. Become a tiny monster, grab a microphone, and absolutely ROCK the Faetopia battle of the bands! Use your monster magic and musical powers to knock the other bands out of the bracket and be crowned monarchs of music by the Archfey! There's a sick song and dance routine in your monstrous little heart, and it's time to make that everyone else's problem. 

One page front and back with simple rules, Monsters & Microphones is the perfect game for convention play or one-shot nights with your regular ttrpg group. It also serves as a fantastic entry point to tabletop role-playing games for anyone who loves little monsters or music. Grab some friends and dice, roll up some characters and the band to beat, and start rocking out!

Online Play

Monsters & Microphones can be played online in any virtual tabletop setting as there is no grid or rigid combat system. Players can use digital note-taking mediums or digital dice where preferred or where physical versions are inconvenient. If playing online, consider choosing a medium where the GM (or players!) can share music with each other for each round of the battle.
