Children of Midnight: Coven is a gender inclusive urban horror Forged in the Dark table-top role-playing game. Players take the role of a Wyld Witch and their Familiar who form a Coven with other Wyld Witches.


It's the near future and your magical powers aren't registered. You can't rely on the electronic infrastructure of the world economy or interact with bots on the street because of the wild reactions electronics have to your unbound abilities. Your family may have even cut ties with you to prevent retribution from The Order.

You have a Familiar who is always looking out for you and a Coven of other Wyld Witches who you can always turn to. With your Coven's abilities and a powerful Patron spirit you can fight to take back power from the elites; make the world better for yourself and your covenmates, and for the next generation of witches.

Children of Midnight: Coven was inspired by Jonathan Brazell and hundreds of our witchy friends from all over the world in various circles and walks of life. We set out to in early 2021 to make a game that celebrates witches rather than tacking them on as an afterthought. Children of Midnight may appear dystopian, but we intend to show that diverse witches have the tools to better their coven's lives and reshape society.
