“Tonight the dead may seek to live again. But the night is short and the path back will not be easy. May I guide them skillfully as the Eagle, Crow, and Owl watch over them. Welcome to my campfire, Ghosts who seek life!”
You are a ghost wandering in limbo with little memory of your life. You’ve been drawn to a mysterious campfire because you’re unhappy with the course that your life took. In order to reinvent yourself and return to life, you must first recall the life you lived and your past misfortune. With the help of the Guide and the other ghosts, you’ll forge relationships, make choices, and commit to a great sacrifice in order to create a better life before the third Watch ends.
Ghosts is a live-action roleplaying game written by Adam Kenney and Suko Toyofuku for 4 - 6 players and 1 - 2 facilitators. It’s rules-light, atmospheric, and very introspective, with no pre-generated characters. You’ll co-create your character and develop the setting through in-game conversations and ritual prompts.
This game was designed to have very high replay value. Each run results in different characters and a different interpretation of the living world. Although the themes and challenges of the game are largely the same from run to run, it should be possible to replay it - even with the same group of people - and have a fresh experience.
This game has been playtested for years and consistently produces a fun, immersive, and often transformative experience for both facilitators and players. It is accessible for first-time larpers to play. Those who have repeatedly played and facilitated the game have called it "a lovely scripted meditation of a game", "a beautiful, immersive, emotionally resonant game", and "a great and replayable framework for meaningful storytelling".
This purchase includes all materials for a Virtual Edition that is thoughtfully designed for online play via Zoom, as well as an In-Person Edition with tips for physical distancing.
