Night in the Lonesome October

In the book Jack the Ripper saved the world, at Ambercon 2008 it was Long John Silver. The world is again in jeopardy; will you save it or help bring about its demise? This game is based on the Roger Zelanzy book of the same name. Knowledge of the book is not required, but will help convey the theme and pacing. Players take on any iconic character from history or fiction (the Great Detective, the Man of Steel, the deadly robot from the future, the eccentric millionaire, etc.) and decide whether they wish to bring about the end of the world, or save it. The players’ actions during the course of October determine the fate of the world on Halloween!
