This is a game about harsh mistreatment of a man chasing his dream.

What “Beholden” is:

– A diceless solo RPG.

– An entry in the April 2011 Ronnies, using the terms “chains” and “queen”.

– A (_____) of Ben Lehman’s game “Beloved”. Choose your preferred term from the list: recontextualization; inversion; retelling; pastiche; critique.  The draft of Beloved that Beholden is based on can be found here:

– A direct response to Beloved, and a dialogue starter.

What it is not:

– Original.  I wrote it, but it would not exist without Ben’s game.

– An “expansion” or “mod”.  Beholden is fully self-contained.

– A challenge to the value of the source game.
