What the water gave me
A downloadable game
What the Water Gave Me by Becky Annison is a diceless, GMless game for 3-5 players. It is set in two time periods the English 17th Century and the modern day. In this game you weave a story of tragedy and death between the the two time periods connected by a dark and sinister, cursed millpool. This is a story of tense drama and relationships with lots of support for improvisation and advice on how to frame scenes.
At the end of the game you will have a deck of cards with some key words and names scribbled on a few cards. This is your artifact to keep and reuse in future games just as the millpool collects is victims.
Play will take around 3-4 hours and you'll need some paper and pens and a deck of playing cards with the Jokers removed.
Content warning: this is a game with themes of death, drowning and suicide.
