So I had this idea for a one-off RPG (in the vein of Ghost Lines or Lady Blackbird) which ties in with a few other mechanics that have been drifting around my head lately, and the whole thing coalesced into this. I’m not sure it’s 100% playable, but if you fancy having a go or want to give feedback I’d love to hear it!
No Sleep Bad
A one-off RPG for 3-5 players
About 3 months ago, 9 out of 10 people became unable to sleep. You were one of the lucky ones, but you don’t know why. All the others – the ones that are still alive – are mad. They aren’t zombies, but some act like them. Others run around shopping malls wearing a ski mask and ladies’ underwear. Others are 3 weeks’ deep in a hallucinatory vision of the truth behind the psychic maelstrom. Others get out of bed every morning and go to work, unaware their stock has rotted away. Almost all of them will fly into a murderous rage if they catch anyone who can still actually sleep.
