This is a mechanics-light, theater-style live action role-playing game (LARP) for 8 players and 1 or 2 game masters (GMs). The game is intended to last 3 hours and features rivalry and intrigue between neighbors and kin. There are no supernatural elements or magic in the game (ie. no woo). All GM materials required to cast and run the game are included.
The game is not intended for players under 16 years of age.
This game was written by Kathleen De Smet and Eva Schiffer outside of the Peaky Midwest workshops and they donated to the Peaky Midwest shop to help fund future workshops. The Storm Cellar is of a similar style to other games that were produced at Peaky Midwest workshops.
In a rural Midwestern town in 1939, eight neighbors find themselves trapped in a storm cellar waiting for a tornado to pass. Secrets and rivalries come to light in the darkness as well as golden opportunities. Just be sure the opportunities you chose are worth the price.
