A Christmas Belonging gives you snow covered landscapes, quaint small towns, and the low stakes high drama experience of a made-for-TV Christmas movie. Recreate those cheerful stories of romance and family drama in this collaborative, zero-prep RPG.

This game is designed for light stories and short term play.  You can quickly create characters, put them in dramatic situations, and find their happy ending in just a few hours. Whether you're looking for a game you can play with your non-gamer family, or just looking for a break from world saving adventure tales, this is the game for you!

* No Dice, No Masters - Tell the story you want to tell, with no GM or dice telling you what to do
* Part romantic comedy, part family drama, all holiday spirit!
* Play Christmas movie tropes like the Small Town Hottie, Event Planner, and Secret Royalty!
* Tell a more diverse and nuanced story than usually gets told by Christmas movies!
* Actual, literal supernatural forces!

Also included is The Christmas Switch, a scenario in the vein of holiday classics like The Princess Switch, and The Princess Switch 2: Switched Again. Two people play characters with identical appearances but different backgrounds who agree to exchange lives for some reason!

Also newly added for 2022 is Christmases Here, 10 pre-made towns to help you jump right into the romance and drama!
