Alice is Missing
Friday, August 25, 2023 @ 8:30 pm - 11:30 pm
A silent role-playing game about the disappearance of Alice Briarwood, a high school junior in the small town of Silent Falls. Players will take on the roles of Alice’s friends and attempt to solve the mystery of her disappearance.
The game is played live and without verbal communication. Players inhabit their character for the entirety of the 90-minute play session, and instead of speaking, send text messages back and forth to the other characters in a group chat, as well as individually, as though they aren’t in the same place together.
The main narrative of the game is played in silence while a soundtrack plays in the background. This is a heavily thematic and emotive roleplaying experience. The game is light on rules and focuses on storytelling, character relationships and worldbuilding. No specific RPG experience is required but players will need to be willing to get fully involved in roleplaying and storytelling (roleplaying is all done in the first person and the story is created and told by the players not by the GM)
Content and player safety:
This game inherently deals with a missing teenage girl in a small town, and all of the topics that can arise when that happens. Because of this, themes like tense family dynamics, grief, death, violence, jealousy, and helplessness can and often do come up during the game.
The game is intended to be an intensely immersive experience but players should not be made to feel uncomfortable by anything that comes up.
We will be using safety tools including an X card and lines & veils, so that players can remove any content or themes they are not comfortable with, both before and during the game.
The game is played using a WhatsApp groupchat. Players will need an internet connected (and charged!) smartphone with WhatsApp installed. It will not be possible to play without this.
The main narrative of the game is played with a 90 minute timer, total play time including setup, character creation and debrief is expected to be around 2.5-3 hours.
This game is for players 18+ only.
