Concept

One sentence pitch:
Play as the grandkids of a mischevious grandparent looking to make a daring (and entirely unnecessary) escape from their retirement home!

A few more sentences...
It’s the 3rd weekend of the month, and you know what that means! It’s dedicated ‘spend time with your grandparent at their retirement home’ weekend. And let’s be honest, you love this weekend. Especially since your grandparent video called you from their phone (only showing their forehead on camera cos they can’t get the angles right, but we still love them), and with a twinkle in their eye, said they had ‘something planned’.

On the weekend you spend with your grandparent at least once a month, you do all sorts of things together. Play games, watch old movies, tell stories… but this weekend, it will be different.

Fact: You love your (extremely mischievous) grandparent

Fact: Your grandparent loves you

Fact: Your grandparent loves where they live

Fact: They could leave at any time

Fact: They are planning a daring escape anyway

Stealing the Crone is a hack of Nick Bate's Stealing the Throne. 

Aim

The aim of the characters in Stealing the Crone is to sneak their grandparent out of their retirement home without being caught. By the carers or by their own parents!
For the players, the aim is to tell a wild story of elder-fueled hijinks and fondly remember our own grandparents.

Tone

The tone of Stealing the Crone is light-hearted, with comedic action thrown in.
No harm will come to our fictional grandparent, and no harm will come to any of the characters unless they want it to, for Dramatic Story Reasons.

Subject Matter

Major themes include heisting, and grandparent-grandchild/family relationships.

We will use the X Card, Lines and Veils, Script Change, and Open Table as our safety tools. These will all be explained at the table, no prior knowledge required.
