PDF Scenario [English] (0.3 MB)


It’s a quiet, sunny summer day in the suburbs. The monthly neighborhood barbecue (and pie contest) will be hosted by the Kessenich family this Sunday. The Rossi and Lee family will be in attendance as usual, along with the Kessenich’s new tenant Brittany.

This is a freeform-style, character-driven drama, lightly plotted with no magic or supernatural elements. GM-sanctioned mayhem only. Mature themes.

**Content notes:** The setting is contemporary and realistic. The game is intended for players over 18. While there is no racism, sex abuse, or rape in this game, content may include abandonment, abortion, adultery, aging, crime, divorce, drug use, poverty, separation, serious illness, unexpected pregnancy, internalized homophobia and internalized sexism. Risk of inflicted insight.

**Characters have been sent out as of 2/11/13. If you haven't received anything, please contact the GMs.**
