Tiden for at indlevere foromtaler nærmer sig. Jeg har brugt de sidste halvandet døgn på at skrive udkast til min, få kritik, skrive igen, få mere kritik,………
Anyway, nu ligger det første udkast jeg har lyst til at gøre offentligt tilgængeligt klar
Memoirs of a Hitman
The old priest looks at me through the fog. I know he is not real. He died so long ago in a country that no longer exists. Chances are I will be joining him soon. The idea of me dying here is quite surreal. This god forsaken island filled with rocks, ice, and tall people with unpronounceable names do not really strike my as that kind of place. But hell, apparently even the best can be wrong from time to time. The faces of the people I have killed should be hunting me, but all I can think of is that old priest. And how much I fucking hate Iceland.
“Memoirs of a Hitman” is a story in four parts about a man’s development from an innocent young soldier into a merciless hitman – and his attempt to reconnect with that youthful innocence in one of the most beautiful and desolate places on the Earth. In terms of mood, the game is close to movies like The American and Munich.
Players should expect a story-centered game where roles continuously shift hands, and with its emphasis on the story rather than immersion in the characters. That said there will be plenty of emotional scenes and tragic aspects to explore. Simple mechanics work to keep the game focused on the general theme.
Duration of play: 4-5 hours
For four players
Genre: Drama with tragic elements
Type of player: Players who want to tell stories and immerse themselves into the narrative. Not for players who focus on acting out or on their own character’s development.
Type of game master: Instructor/facilitator rather than co-player. You will be setting the scenes, and keeping the themes and the narrative in check.
About the author: Johannes Daa is a rather unknown guy. He is more than halfway into his twenties, works too much, and doesn’t get enough sleep. Just like everybody else. He has always been fascinated by what makes a man, and what happens to an individual who kills. Not surprisingly his favorite books are “Crime and Punishment” and “The Stranger.” This is his first scenario, though his unseen hand has touched upon a range of others.
Der findes selvfølgeligt også en dansk udgave, men vil egentlig helst have testet den engelske, siden det ikke er mit førstesprog.
