January 15, 1919 was an unusually warm day in Boston. As World War I came to an end and Prohibition was about to be ratified, a molasses tank on the North End ruptured, destroying a neighborhood. How did it happen? What did it mean? Can we ever understand?
For three regular people caught up in the disaster, it started as a normal Wednesday and ended up throwing into question their very concept of society, reality, and time itself.
The Great Molasses Flood is a weird historical fiction campaign based on a real-life disaster using the Rosette Diceless system from Future Proof Games, a system designed in part by Gregory, the host and GM.
It’s coming soon.
