You live on a plantation. You've lived there all your life, whether you are a slave or a free man, you've lived under the rule of House Gondu, one of the seven Houses of Ammeni.
Life goes day by day, with little changing the routine, until the Runner arrives with news that your whole lifestyle is about to change. You've known about the rebels that fight the status quo, who attack from the shadows and leave before the light shines on them. They've never been more than a nuisance, at least, that's what the House Head tells you. But now, an army of rebels is on the march, and heading straight towards the plantation house.
What will you do?
We will be playing in the world of The Shadow of Yesterday. The complete rules can be found here: http://tsoy.crngames.com
The system is very character driven and focuses very much on character development. Combat can, and will happen. We'll be using character sheets on Google Documents. I'll be hosting them under my Google Docs and will share them with the players, that way they can edit them and I can see them.
