You awoke to a silent world.
Eyes opened to a wide and wandering sky; scattered clouds crawled reluctantly across the vastness of blue.
Took some time to register it.
No sound. No movement. No rattling of well buckets, no cackling of hens, no slamming of doors.
Sentinel had become a ghost town overnight. No horses. No dogs. No people.
The doors of the saloon in the middle of town swung open lazily, moved by the wind. Inside only darkness. The church stood mute at the end of the road, the livery and stables all empty. The hotel. The doctors office. The feed lot. The lumber yard. All abandoned. Everyone gone.
Where did everyone go?
What happened here? How did you sleep through it, and what’s coming?
Sentinel is a storium set in a fictional wild west town of the same name in the 1840’s to 1850’s. Your character only recently arrived in town, and now awakens to find it deserted.
Characters will be introduced as they wake up and begin to come to terms with what’s happened in the town. There will be an investigatory element to the story, though you won’t need to rigidly follow clues to understand what happened and why.
As you look about the town, you will learn what befell Sentinel. You may also find the desertion was not complete.
I am working on custom cards, and these will be added as options though you are of course able to select to write something different and your own.
I added a death system which is described in the Hosts Rules section below. I also removed the option to have connected backstories as I realized that might prove problematic later on. Instead, let’s keep your characters histories a little vague from one another. Don’t write everything on your character sheet; lets save some for the telling.
You can read about the death system by going to the discord server and visiting the following link: https://discordapp.com/channels/613062138378059848/700834378124754975/701907421932814396
