Marlowe 2020

There are some who say that Christopher Marlowe actually wrote Shakespeare's plays. By the year 2020, everyone is too busy backstabbing each other for pocket change to care.

The premise for this game is simple: The plots for Shakespeare's tragedies, as reconfigured for a cyberpunk future. The names may be different, and the powers that be may be cutthroat corporations instead of cutthroat noble houses, but the likes of Romeo, Hamlet, and King Lear will be interacting in a landscape of love, betrayal, high caliber weapons and mirrorshades.

This is a four-hour Theatre-style LARP for people who want to engage in backstabbing intrigue and look badass while doing it.

This is a nasty, adult game which will not be suitable for the faint heartedn

Cowards die a thousand deaths. The valiant taste of death but once.

But wow, what a way to go.

Information for Players:Characters will mostly be members of either an American or Japanese corporation.

Players may want to make cool cyberpunk attachments. They will need to be familiar with the plots of 3 or 4 Shakespeare plays, but the outlines on Wikipedia are probably sufficient.

There are half a dozen pages of background sheets but short character sheets. The character sheets are more like a 'Peaky' type sheet, and players will need to squeeze the goodness out of them.

I expect this to be using the games room area, so you will wish to dress warmly.
