What year is it? You don’t remember. The year stopped mattering after the bombs fell. The Soviets might have dropped them first, or the Americans. Maybe it was India and Pakistan, or Israel went off the deep end. Who cares? The effect was the same. You were atomized, all on the same train to Somewhere. Now you’re nuclear shadows, and you’re hungry. You need to feed, and the train will get you there.

Shadows is a LARP for the Gaming Like It's 1923 game jam. Based very loosely on the 1923 play "The Ghost Train" by Arnold Ridley. Players take on the roles of people who died during a nuclear strike, and have to sustain their shadowy forms with the memories of survivors.

Really cool idea and concept. I will try out when I find someone to play it with.
