Squatting outside the city the Demon Gate, roofed as it is, is an uncertain haven for travellers, vagrants, mendicant monks, criminals, lost spirits... and you.

There was a trial, about a man that died. They made you speak there. You saw something, right? You still don't understand it; the pieces don't fit. There was a trial, and there will be an execution, and your part is done. But it haunts you.

There are two hours before the ferry comes and you can get out of here. Which leaves you stuck with answering the question: what exactly happened?


**

A live action storytelling game for 10-12 players loosely based on Rashomon (Akira Kurosawa), and "In A Grove" and "The Rashomon" (Ryunosuke Akutagawa). (GM note: while relatively dark, this game does not have any themes of sexual violence.)

Requirements:

Players: 10-12, F - 2  M - 2  E - 8
Venue: Outside, preferably with an open, roofed structure that allows a fire.
Costumes: Aims for Edo-period Japanese; some characters are a bit more specific.
Time: Run time 2 hours, plus setup and pack out.
Themes: Unreliable narration; everyone is guilty; a flower of hope in the wasteland of despair; minor supernatural themes; horror. 

Contains:

- 54 page Introduction pdf which includes set up and running notes, an overview of the plot lines, literary and historical context for the curious, and character sheets.
- Excel spreadsheet to keep track of player data and props. 
- Bundled mp3 sound effect.
- All paper handouts assembled into one easy-to-print pdf.
- Editable backup of documents for ease in tailoring to a particular player base.

Format

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.
