Investigate Your Own Murder

Experimentation in tabletop roleplaying is a ton of fun, and sometimes an idea comes up that’s nothing more than a “what if?”

In the case of Death and Police Tape, which you can download on, the whole idea was to make a gritty (and gory) freeform horror scenario where you first died a gruesome death and then investigated that same death, having to explain it in a press release. With a new set of characters.

It turns the common GM/player dynamic somewhat on its head and lets the players drive the interesting decisions to be made.

We had a ton of fun with it, and it can be safely played in a single evening. Perfect for Halloween.
