“The neighborhood’s always been pretty nice, if quiet. Good schools, low crime, nice restaurants. The only problem is the mail: a man keeps sending bizarre letters to the residents. It’s up to three residents of the neighborhood — a down-on-his-luck cop, a drug addict, and a city councilor — to figure out the source of these letters and make life cozy again.”
Trigger Warning: this actual play contains the writings of Francis E. Dec, a very ill man with horrible views on race. This game is meant to unsettle and entertain, but Chris, tonight’s GM, doesn’t want to blindside anyone who has been negatively affected by mental illness and racism. Be forewarned.
