Grandma’s Resting Place
It’s been three years since Grandma Dot’s cancer diagnosis, and the last two annual family beach parties have been centered on her long—and happy—goodbyes. Now she’s passed away in a hospital far from home. Rather than turn her body over to the usual pipeline of hospital to funeral home to cemetery, the family took it and drove off in their RV to take her home and decide what to do.
Grandma’s Resting Place is a game about coping with the loss of a loved one by sharing and reliving memories spanning three generations. The game is set in a realistic modern time. This is a serious game including a mix of joyful, funny, and sad memories. The focus is on roleplaying the characters involved, with no goals.

|Information for Players:||Play takes place primarily in a scene in the “present time” of 2016 shortly after Grandma Dot’s death. This scene is intermittently punctuated by flashback memory scenes and monologues from a player portraying the memory of Grandma Dot. The flashback scenes look back earlier into the lives of the characters and explore their complicated relationships with Grandma Dot.
Player characters will be gendered based on player preferences. Grandma is always female. All other characters may use male or female pronouns. Some (3/5) of the characters are also available as explicitly non-binary gender with neutral they pronouns.
Grandma is bordering on an NPC role, let's call it a scripted PC but still offers the player a chance to play.
