Do you have an hour to spare with me and a few friends?
The Maker has been killed, smashed in the head by Punch the Maker-Killer, and Judy…who once loved Punch… now abhors him. He and his loyal followers, wearing the skin of the Maker, rule Puppetland in fear, where it is always cold and enshrouded in darkness.
This is the story that precedes Puppetland, an RPG where everyone is a puppet (except the puppetmaster – he/she uses several “uniques”), and must navigate the dismal world that Punch rules. The book was funded in 3 days on Kickstarter, based on author John Scott Tynes’ original game.
