“I have the kiss of Walt Whitman still on my lips.” - Oscar Wilde, letter to George Cecil Ives 1882

This game takes place in the nebulous time after the American Civil War in the mid to late 1800’s. Specific dates or locations don’t matter, but the events of the Civil War are over, and the country is beginning to heal. Brother fought brother, and the best of friends often clashed. A great crisis of self has fallen on the land and the country stands on a new opportunity to define its identity as a nation.

Play occurs as a conversation between players embodying pairs of queer lovers, immediately following the discovery of a mysterious and ancient artifact. You play using tarot cards, tapping aspects of yourself and providing hooks that other players can grab on to. You will use these Traits to influence your conversation and actions throughout the game, and you will use the Traits of your friends to get them involved as well. As the curious discoverers of The Artifact you will want to unlock as much knowledge as you can, keeping tally as the game progresses, but that knowledge comes at a price. Be cautious of attracting the attention of The Artifact’s destructive power, and try your best to keep your lover safe as well.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
