The Bay City Adventures
Kids with monsters don’t have a monopoly on the strange, there are also Weird Kids, kids trapped between two worlds — one the world of classes and sports and popularity and all that kid stuff, and the other of the… well… other.
Weird Kids have abilities beyond what could be called “normal” under any definition, abilities that set them apart from the rest of humanity, abilities that may be slowly changing them into something different.
Weird Kids do not form bonds with monsters, but they have access to Weird Skills and Weird Relationships. All this weirdness comes at a price, however. The more dice they have in Weird Skills, the easier it is to pick up on the fact that they are abnormal, which can make life all kinds of difficult.
