Away From the Rain [$8.00]

Away From the Rain [$8.00]:

On this rainy evening, three untrustworthy suspects have each separately testified to committing the same murder.

Away From the Rain is a GM-less tabletop game for 3 or 6 players. Play time ~45 minutes. Good both as a one-shot and as a drop-in interlude in an existing setting.

Inspired by The Moonlit Road by Ambrose Bierce and In A Grove by RyĆ«nosuke Akutagawa.

Illustrated by shannon kao, the best atmospheric illustrator to ever have lived.


The body was found this evening, just after the rain. Three people have confessed to this murder, including the Deceased themselves.

We'll hear from each of the Suspects, and we'll hear from three members of their community.

This is a game about how we are unable to be honest with ourselves about ourselves. It is a game about rationalizations and unreliable narrators. You'll tell disagreeing stories, and you may not find out the truth.

  • Keep the atmosphere dark, but not heavy.
  • Center your stories on people and look at those people clearly.
  • Always speak as someone who believes what they're saying.
  • Remember that rain dulls sounds, makes it harder to see, and washes away footprints.
  • Remember that recollection itself is a kind of performance.

In order to download this game you must purchase it at or above the minimum price of $8 USD. You will get access to the following files:
