to those who are marginalized or experiencing financial insecurity.

CONTENT WARNING: survival situations, potential for player vs player conflict, frank discussion of colonialism and systems of oppression.

who would you be, in the absence of a larger society?

how would you survive, if all you had were the things you've learned?
what does folklore and tradition still contribute to those who feel estranged from it?

this is a diceless, gm-less, turn-less, mechanic-free casual discussion larp, aimed at creating a space to examine the ways creating worlds from scratch cannot be done without bringing your own culture along.

please be sure to discuss safety tools before attempting to run the game. see the TTRPG Safety Toolkit by Kienna Shaw & Lauren Bryant-Monk for a thorough survey of commonly used safety tools and consent mechanics.

this game was created as a submission to Folklore Jam 2019.

An explorative game about culture and folklore. You play as yourselves who are transported to a new world with no other people in it. Even though you bring nothing into the new world, your culture perspectives and biases persist. It is an important lesson to reflect upon, as many popular fantasy settings in fiction do contain cultural biases that may be harmful, but not immediately obvious to the audience (and perhaps even the authors themselves).
