About the adventure

Become a person who is really good at what they do, and travel to the metropolis of the Edge, a modern city standing on the mostly-but-not-completely-unheard-of locale of Al Amarja, a large island in the Atlantic Ocean (somewhere near Africa and Europe?). Live in a world where the paranormal, the surreal, the bizarre, and the dangerous are everywhere, whether you believe it or not. Work with the other players (and me) to tell a cinematic tale of crazy, urban weirdness! Worry less about your character's stats and more about why that dancer is holding a crow is in this nightclub, and how is that crow able to telepathically ask you to set it free? Why did your taxi driver tell you to stay clear of the Four Points District at night, only to hand you rare tickets to an invitation-only gallery opening in that very district WHICH STARTS IN TEN MINUTES? Why did that strange man knock on your hotel room door and ask if you "knew Jean-Claude, and have you seen him lately?" Your character is human, but you can definitely be weird and have paranormal or supernatural powers (just nothing story-breaking, like invincibility, invisibility, or mind control). Or maybe you're just really good at what you do and somehow got a job in the Edge. Or maybe it's all just a coincidence? According to the author, the game itself is supposedly a quantum device that allows one to access the intersections of nearby, alternate dimensions, so maybe just sign up, make a character, and give it a go??? If you end up in our group, you're clearly meant to be a part of this, for some (cosmic?) reason. THOUGH LISTED AS A CAMPAIGN, THERE IS NO OBLIGATION TO COMMIT TO PLAYING IN FUTURE SESSIONS, BUT I DO HOPE TO EVENTUALLY HAVE A SMALL GROUP OF CORE PLAYERS WHO WISH TO CONTINUE THEIR ADVENTURE ON THE ISLAND, EVEN IF THEY HAVE TO SOMETIMES MISS A SESSION OR TWO. (When that happens, I will have to raise the session price eventually, but not too much.) So consider this a 'one-shot' that could also become a campaign, featuring YOU.

Additional Details

How to prepare

The less information you have about the game setting (beyond what I share with you during character creation), the more fun you will have as a first-time "Over the Edge" player.

What I provide

I have a copy of the recent Third Edition book and a vivid imagination with a strong yearning to have fun and create a really exciting group story! I also have handouts from the game designer to help new players get a fair understanding of what they are getting into.
