The Boy in the Rubble

The Boy in the Rubble is an interesting beast: it’s a somewhat grim, dark scenario for the most light-hearted roleplaying game I know, Golden Sky Stories. I’ve run it once, and it got me a sudden reputation for being a terrible terrible person.

Based on feedback from that session, I’ve modified it slightly, and what you see here is the game in its V2.0 form. It’s designed for three players, and should take about four hours to run.

If you play this game, I’d really like to know how it went. Did your players feel that the epilogue pulled them out of the gloom sufficiently? Did they feel that it was a good game, or too much of a shockfest? What was it like running the game? Let me know, and I can make the scenario even better.
