TLDR: The Gang Vs Monsters reliving Joss Whedon’s heyday.
Before all the HeroScapeyness and such but post HeroQuest years, super gamey Gods Rob and Craig did the deed and up popped BtVS:tG(US), which is not the chemical equation for cheese.
Ye old dice of customness that these guys thrive on are here in all their cubey glory. Little vampy fangs, stakes and stuff are on fighty dice, and there's move dice and dice for the bigbad and majik dice for when you want to go all Willowy. Its like Doom with the colors, but not for what the Doom dice are for. The fight dice say things like Jab and Punch and Kick, but it doesn't mean anything different, except on would be a jab or a punch or a kick. They all do the same, but its kind of there for flavoriness. Which is cool.
So one of your gang plays the big bad du jour, and you really shouldn't play if you haven't seen that season, because of all things spoiler, like Oz being a werewolf and ... and I shouldn't have said that in case you haven't seen that season, so just make believe it didn't happen, OK?
Everyone else who isn't the person who's the bigbad gets to be the Scoobs. Willow, Oz, Xander, Buffster. This is all like, the early seasons, so you can't be sure if Willow is all mushy on Xander or Oz, but definitely no Tara or that girlgirl stuff here. You kind of make your own little story that isn't quite like the one that was on TV, well, especially because maybe everybody dies and that didn't happen on TV, at least not all at the same time...
