Tragedy: Wherein players take on the roles of Shakespearian characters who die in most spectacular and lamentable ways.

Tragedy is an amusing roleplaying game where the players take on the roles of Shakespearian characters. As the game progresses they work together to create the most dramatic, spectacular, and gory deaths for their characters. The main draw of this game is the amusement of piling angst upon your poor character's head as you plot their demise in an increasingly elaborate web of intrigue. Tragedy supports four to six players and does not require anyone to take on the traditional role of game-master. The booklet includes three example playbills which players can try as well as information on how to create your own playbills.

If there is interest or I feel inspired I will probably transcribe a few more playbills for people to enjoy.
