Actual Play: Fear Itself – Ocean In The Forest Episode 4

 

Trying to get a leg-up on the competition, our larpers descend deeper into the forest.  As emotions run high, Eldarak goes sour and they have to fight for their lives.

Note: The conclusion of this mini campaign was accidentally published as episode 4 before the release of this episode.  The conclusion has since then relabeled as episode five.  Sorry for the confusion.

Actual Play – Fear Itself: Backup Flyer

“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.
