At What Cost

RPG system: LARP
Participants: 6-10 players

By

✏️Christopher Amherst
✏️Tegan L. Hendrickson

Description

There is a traitor among you. You and your fellow spies have been summoned to ferret out the mole. Many of you have history together: good and bad. Some of you have been lovers, others have only been held back from killing each other by bonds of duty. One of you has committed the cardinal sin in the world of spies: selling secrets to the enemy. How far are you willing to go to uncover the traitor?

"At What Cost" is in the style of a jeepform game and will deal with mature subject matter such as enhanced interrogation, betrayal, and infidelity. A game where you are the character, making the story emotionally relevant to you by bringing your real life (aka "bleed") into the game. We will use meta-techniques such as flashbacks to enhance back stories and monologues to voice your character's inner thoughts during play. This is a story set in the shadowy world of modern espionage and asking the question of who do you trust, who are you really, what is the truth, and what is the price or cost of your loyalty to duty, country, and your colleagues.

This game is for mature audiences only. 18+
