From the Introduction:
- Our home is breaking, and we have no one to blame but ourselves. We built a flawed society, and soon it will destroy itself.
- Though most of us can't perceive the coming doom, a Hero arises to fight against the impending collapse.
- Downfall is the story of how we try to save our society and ourselves, and fail.
Downfall is a collaborative role-playing game for 3 people. The game takes 2-4 hours to play. During play we'll create a fictional society together, then play out its destruction.
The object of the game is to find out how our society collapses and to make its downfall tragic, beautiful, and meaningful. Together we'll create a rich world, play characters struggling amidst the growing chaos, and witness the self-destruction of our home.
The game is designed to be played from scratch. You don't need to prepare any plot or character materials beforehand.
