Left Coast is a role-playing game about a science fiction writer in California, who struggles as the weirdness from her novels spills into real life.
How to play Left Coast
One player is ‘the Author’, whose life has just been disrupted. By aliens? Government mind control? Or something worse?
The other players control all the supporting characters in the Author’s life. Each of her friends, family, fans and nemeses has a secret that puts pressure on the Author. They might also be part of the conspiracy that's invented as you play.
Together, you create short stories about the Author's attempts to find the time to write while dealing (or not) with the growing weirdness in her life.
System: low-prep and low complexity.
Genre: indie movie with science fiction elements.
Tone: laid-back (think The Big Lebowski, A Scanner Darkly).
"Very approachable with a pick up ‘n play quality. ... [It's] breezy and fun and deep." (https://akingdomis.wordpress.com/2015/04/25/left-coast/)
You'll receive a .zip file containing 3 .pdf versions of the game (print-friendly and illustrated).
