Dream a Little Dream -- A Dalton Story Using MotW

Dream a Little Dream – A Dalton Story

Monster of the Week

Dalton Kentucky is welcoming tourists in 1984. Local storytellers, crafts-folk, and artists are hoping out of towners will bring much needed cash. Outside the hills and hollers the world is wrapped in Reagan’s America. Here in the valley, folks have gotten along for decades but the intolerance of the past still haunts memories. When a gay couple is murdered, old bigotry raises it’s head and a spectre of hatred finds purchase. Our heroes must face the threats of the present as well as confront the atrocities of the past.

This game will deal with Homo/Trans/Queer-Phobia. It will confront bigotry and historical violence. It will delve into a dark past while allowing the PCs to shine a light of defiance. There is likely to be body horror, difficult choices, and religious intolerance. It is meant to be difficult, emotional, but ultimately uplifting. There will be a CATS discussion before play, lines and veils, the X-Card, and elements of ‘Writers Room’ as safety tools. There will also be a curated list of Playbooks. Attendance in all session is preferred, but not required.

This is a 3 hour, 5 session run.
