The Haunting of the Flower Prince (an Over The Edge one shot)
Over the Edge on Discord
Price per player-session
About the adventure
His name was Florent, and his beauty was awful. You met him (or maybe he met you?), you thought you knew him, and then he left, leaving you a ghost. Not a literal ghost (probably), but you flit through this mortal world with unfinished business because of him. Do you need an explanation of why he stood you up at the altar? Does he need to be brought to justice for his crimes? Does he have a cure to the curse your ex placed on you? Do you want to write his life story? Did he actually kill you and you need to know why? Your torment is approaching its end. In your dreams you have heard the whispering call of Al Amarja, a small island surrounded by both the Atlantic and mystery. There, in the city called the Edge, you know you will find Florent. Just after you get out of quarantine. A game for players interested in satire, surrealism, the modern age, and the occasional baboon attack.
How to prepare
As a Discord game you'll need a mic, but not a camera. You do not need to read the rules ahead, but you can talk to me about them if you want a primer. Same thing with character.
What I provide
I have a program for dice, will bring the rules, and will provide a recording of the session to anyone who wants one.
It's a game of unraveling a surreal mystery, punctuated by flashy action, and an intense pace. There's not a lot of rules to mull over or strategies to plan, so we get right to interacting with each part of the strange world, however you choose to do that. The one shot has a strong psychological element, that will make use of what the players bring to their characters. I cannot provide a complete content warning, as the one shot is flexible to what the players bring to the table. Please let me know if there is any material you can't handle or simply don't want in the game so we can keep the environment safe. You can bring it up in play, too. Just voice a verbal X-card. I can warn about some content, however. These things are very likely to occur in any version of the one shot. Content Warning: Drug use (including alcohol and tobacco), human/human violence, classism (depicted, not condoned), human/animal violence

How will character creation work
Players should contact me to get characters before hand. It's not hard, you just need a main trait, a side trait, a central question, a trouble, and a reason you're chasing Florent.
