I’ve written a short series of RP poems based on the music of “Apple of my Eye” and I thought I’d share the first one here (more will be posted over time).
It’s written as a script for one player to read out as you play. When you should stop reading and play through the next section of the game there will be a note (♩♪♫♬).
Players: 3+ (ideally 3/4)
Play Time: ~20 minutes
Props: A pen and a sheet of A5 each
Everyone take a sheet of paper and divide it into 3 roughly equal sections. In the top section write the name of a person, describe their life in a sentence and then what is troubling them. Keep this information secret.
Now pass your sheet to the right.
Read the sheet in front of you and in the second section, secretly write down what they wish for from the devil, keep it simple.
Fold over the top section of the sheet so it cannot be seen and pass it to right.
Read the wish on the sheet in front of you and write down the consequences in the third section. You are the devil for this section so be as cruel as possible.
Pass the sheet back to the original owner who should read the whole thing.
Finally, in turn, each player narrates a tale based on what is on their paper, fitting everything together and endeavoring to making the consequences more personal.
Each player should feel free to reconcile any inconsistencies between the first and last contribution and should try to keep their tale relatively brief.
