They have fallen.

For years they stood between us and danger, beside us in our troubles, and before us as an inspiration. 

Tall as a mountain, strong as a hurricane, and enduring as the earth beneath us, with a heart that burned as brightly and fiercely as the sun. 

They were our protector, our champion, our sword and shield. 

For we lucky few, they were a friend. 

And now they are dead.


Last Rites is a LARP for 2 – 6 players and is part of #sadmechjam2k19.

It is a game about the loved ones of a mech-pilot pair, gathered to prepare both bodies for the funeral and to say goodbye.

It's inspired by Austin Walker's hot take: "All mecha stories are stories about bodies", and by the opening funeral scene of Xole Karman's brilliant game Caryatides.

To play you will need a quiet room, a table, dark cloth to cover it, plenty of white tape, and some index cards and pens. You will also need a copy of this sheet.

This game is brought to you by the generosity of my Patrons, and especially Cassandra. Thank you all so much.
