''Witch Girls Adventures'' is a role-playing game published in 2009 by Channel M. While it functions as a stand alone universe, its setting and [=NPCs=] both use characters and elements from Channel M's ''Witch Girls Tales'' comic book series and Abby Soto's ''Princess Lucinda'' comic book series. The game runs on Channel M's own "Drama Diaries" system.

In the game, you play a student at one of the many magic schools set up for witches around the world and go through the usual trials and tribulations that being a tween to teenage girl brings, all while trying to learn how to use your powers. Obviously, the game is designed to get young girls interested in pen-and-paper {{RPG}}s.

** It ''was'' broken on a large scale from about the lead-up to UsefulNotes/TheAmericanCivilWar until the end of WorldWarII -- which actually had an open supernatural aspect -- but Witches erased all memory and records of this. This rather upset some of the Otherkin, who felt it was about time the Masquerade came down and wanted to re-integrate with human society.

* SanityMeter: Mortals (and only mortals) can face Freak Out rolls when opposed to the supernatural. This is {{downplayed}} compared to most uses of the trope, particularly the CthulhuMythos (the TropeCodifier), in that there's nothing supernatural about this, a character only [[FreakOut Freaks Out]] once each time they're exposed to something new, and it's rare (but not impossible) for someone to actually go permanently insane in any way.

** The Immortals seem like a nod to ''Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians''. There's a [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Monsterdex]] available for quick 'n easy monster scouting. Possible allies/enemies in one adventure include [[Franchise/{{Ghostbusters}} the Specter Breakers]], who can help vanquish [[PiratesOfTheCaribbean pirate zombies]] and [[WesternAnimation/SouthPark pirate ghosts]] (ghost pirates?). In one adventure run at cons the Tin Man shows up and intones [[Franchise/{{Terminator}} "Come with me if you want to live."]] There's a lot of pop culture shout-outs, let's say.

* CanonWelding: Princess Lucinda started in her own separate series, and as mentioned in BleachedUnderpants, a lot of the characters from ''The Shrinking Sorceress'' have also [[CanonImmigrant immigrated]]. Essentially, the ''WitchGirlsAdventures'' [[TheVerse verse]] is a puree of MANGA GRAPHIX, ''Princess Lucinda'', and ''Witch Girls Tales'', along with new OriginalGeneration characters and far more sociology and background development.

* {{Ghostapo}}: There was an openly-magical World War II which blew the Masquerade wide open until the war ended and some serious magic was worked to make people forget all the spell-slinging and whatnot. Practical or no, it's [[RuleOfCool bloody awesome]] and is a blatant excuse to run [[BedknobsAndBroomsticks magicked-up]] [[Anime/StrikeWitches World War II]] [[{{Godlike}} games]].

* CrossOver: The original run of ''Witch Girls'' featured guest appearances by characters from Malcom Harris' ''Nemesis'' {{Superhero}} setting, such as Raven Sinclair and Team Maximum. The original implication seemed to be that they were in-continuity with each other, but a ''Witch Girls Adventures'' supplement seems to {{Retcon}} them into being visitors from an AlternateUniverse.
