Description

Two murders spark the scheming from Neo Xins shining top to its sullied bottom. The detective Jackdaw returns to the city, where the dojos have degenerated into megacorporations, hunting profit and power in this neon crossover world of cyberpunk and wuxia.

In the Haze of Neo Xin is an asymmetrical ensemble-drama set in a cyberpunk world originating from a fairytale Asia inspired by the wuxia genre. Three players each take on three different roles while the fourth play a detective who returns to her hometown to investigate how an AI is involved in two murders.

The game takes place both in the polished offices high above the clouds and in the heavy smog of the slums. Direct action against the other characters can only be taken during narrative scenes, which will have significant impact on how the story unfolds. At the end of the game several of the characters will be dead.

In the Haze of Neo Xin is a character driven drama where the players are co-creators of a shared story. The scenario is primarily played as character-scenes set by the players, in which the relations between the characters is explored and evolved.

In the room you create the story together, but in the streets of Neo Xin, everyone is alone.

To mord får intriger til at blusse op helt fra Neo Xins strålende tinde til den sølede bund. Detektiven Allike vender tilbage til byen, hvor kampskolernes forskruede jagt på profit har gjort dem til megacorps i en neonoplyst krydsning af cyberpunk og wuxia.

Tåge over Neo Xin er et asymmetrisk ensembledrama sat i en cyberpunk-verden udsprunget fra wuxia-genrens eventyr-asien. Tre af spillerne spiller hver tre karakterer, mens den fjerde spiller påtager sig rollen som detektiven, der vender tilbage til sin hjemby for at opklare, hvordan en AI er involveret i to mord.

Plottet udspiller sig både i de spejlblanke kontorer højt over skyerne og i den tunge smog i byens slum. Direkte handling mod andre karakterer udspiller sig kun i fortællescener, der kan have vidtrækkende konsekvenser. Når scenariet er slut er flere af karaktererne med sikkerhed ikke længere i live.

Tåge over Neo Xin er et karakterdrama, hvor der rig mulighed for at være medskaber af en fælles historie. Scenariet består primært af spillersatte karakterscener, hvor rollernes relationer udforskes, og dramaet udfolder sig, efterhånden som alle bliver klar over, at ingen bør stole på nogen.

I spillokalet skaber I fortællingen i fællesskab, men i Neo Xins trængsel er alle alene.
