One of my favorite games is Before the Storm by Joanna Piancastelli, a one-shot rpg from the Seven Wonders collection. In it the group plays out the story of the last night of a fantasy company, as they rest before the final battle. It’s a game about relationships, disagreements, secrets, coming to terms with the past and more. It works both as a tabletop game and a LARP.
It’s also a great frame to play out an epic superhero story, as I present in my most recent blog post. our team of superheroes is about to make a final stand against a world-shattering enemy. Our team has recovered The Object, something the enemy wants and that we hope to use against them. Our heroes have bunkered down in a base filled with allies and civilians, awaiting tomorrow’s attack. It’s an easy hack, .
