Fae's Anatomy: A Melodramatic Medical Mystery

Selected Option:

Fae’s Anatomy is a comedic storytelling RPG wrapped around a challenging logic puzzle, recreating the high-stakes melodrama of medical procedurals like Grey’s Anatomy, House, and General Hospital


Anybody can be an expert in Fae’s Anatomy. The game is set in a world where all forms of magic, spirituality, and mysticism are science. Science? Just another form of wizardry. Quackary, superstition, and pseudo-science work, but so does chemotherapy, antibiotics, and sound medicine.


Fae’s Anatomy can generate one of up to 10,000 supernatural diseases from a single dice roll. The book contains the same diagnostic manual characters would use to find a cure, and the contents are even app-assisted to help sort through the possibilities. Is the Patient’s fever the result of a viral infection, or pyrokinesis? Is that extra hair a sign of early-onset lycanthropy, or a glandular problem?


The Patient is a player too! Certain rules variants obscure the answer to the diagnostic puzzle from everyone. Patients must act out an escalating list of mysterious symptoms for the doctors, despite having few clues as to which disease is causing the problems. Roleplay well...or die!


The rest of the players are Providers, medical professionals dedicated to finding a cure. But being a doctor is stressful! Our medical heroes need to steal medications from the pharmacy, make out in broom closets, and misbehave until medicine becomes interesting enough to watch on television. In Fae’s Anatomy, behaving like a messy drama queen is an essential tool for saving lives!

An excellent hybrid of role-playing and party game, with a huge dose of improv comedy. Wrapping my head around the way this game works gave my old-school brain new insights on how a game could be run. Plus, I'm a long-time Shondaland fan, so I was [...]

Fae's Anatomy is a ten-dollar joy engine that's easy to learn, quick to teach, and promises to deliver a full scenario in three hours or less. The logic puzzle at its core provides a dramatic framework, but the real fun comes from your table [...]

Fae's Anatomy is a simple, lighthearted poke at the nighttime medical dramas from House to (obviously) Grey's Anatomy. The basic rules are simple, and the game's premise is actually a cooperative puzzle solving game. Its got an innovativ [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
