When playing a narrative RPG like Stray Gods: The Roleplaying Musical, one of the most exciting game elements is romance. In Stray Gods, there are four romance options to choose from — all important players in your character Grace’s journey with her godly powers. However, if you want to go in with an idea of who you might want to flirt with, here’s a quick introduction to each of Stray Gods’ romances.
Who can you romance in Stray Gods?
When Grace first becomes a god, the first fellow Idol to come to her defense is the melancholic Apollo. The Sun God, associated with prophecies and music, was once close to Grace’s muse predecessor Calliope. Being stuck in his own bad habits, though, drove the two apart. However, while he and Grace investigate her death, you can choose to let a romance bloom between them.
In short, Apollo is simply a sad boy softie seeking absolution who needs to take better care of himself. He’s also quite charming with his out-of-touch, homebody quirks. If you can’t resist a romantic option in his redemption arc, you’ll fall for Apollo faster than you expect.
Freddie is the first romance option you meet. Grace and Freddie are in a band together and start the game auditioning for new members. Freddie is also Grace’s roommate and coolest best friend. When it comes to romancing her, Freddie is a supportive breath of fresh air — a super smart bookworm with creative talents and a very cool hat.
If a rock-solid friendship blossoming into something more is your kryptonite, Freddie is your gal. It’d be hard to find such a better friend to fall in love with.
A man with swagger and secrets, Pan is a hard god to read. He can be chaotic and cryptic, to the point that other gods know him as a manipulator… But he’s also a smooth-talker who keeps appearing to help Grace. While Pan starts a mystery, he hides secret depth and can be quite the alluring romance option.
Also, his first song — sung with Grace and Freddie in their apartment — is easily one of the best in the entire game. For a one-of-a-kind romance, give this god of the wilds a chance.
Grace and Persephone do not start on the right foot. Persephone wants to execute Grace for Calliope’s murder, after all. However, this tough, troubled, and very sexy goddess’ personality has more than just anger to it. She’s a long-suffering queen who lost her youth and throne to a kidnapping jerk. If Grace opens up to her, though, you might get her to open up right back.
Who needs a bad boy romance when you can have this badass goddess with a heart of gold underneath it all?
