"Do I want her, or do I want to be her?"

The Admirer is surrounded by amazing, wonderful people who inspire them by being themselves, but doesn't yes have a strong sense self. Their central conflict is distinguishing between self-discovery and budding feelings.

Despite the name, the Admirer is not about being in romantic love. In fact, the Admirer is slow to recognize their feelings, unable to untangle aesthetic fascination, desire for self-realization, and budding feelings of infatuation. It is not until they have worked out the root of their admiration that they can decide if they are indeed Smitten.

Ultimately the Admirer playbook is about experimentation and self-discovery. By embracing what it is about others that fascinates or inspires them, new ways of being open up to them. 

Because the Admirer's core playbook feature, Admiration, involves choosing from a wide library of possible moves, it is best to have some familiarity with the playbooks before playing the Admirer. As such it should be considered an intermediate to advanced playbook.

Every purchase includes:

  • 7-page PDF including the playbook, relationship questions, GM moves, and play guidance
  • Printable playbook sheet (with and without artwork)
  • Plain text .txt

My greatest thanks to April, Christie, Michelle, and Morgan.
