Red Carnations on a Black Grave
Red Carnations on a Black Grave is a freeform GMless roleplaying game for 4-6 players that brings to life the 72 tumultuous days of the Paris Commune. A game is playable in a single session of four hours or less. Each player portrays two characters during the two months of the Commune, one of whom must die during the French Army's all-out assault on Paris in the last week of May, 1871. Special cards guide your play, providing questions about how the characters are related to each other, historical incidents to serve as the basis of scenes in the game, and the ultimate fate of your surviving characters.
