LAY ME DOWN is a solo roleplaying game in which you take on the role of a dead body and the strange presence its burial grants the specific place around it. Just as in life, you are often not able to choose what happens to you, but you will be able to somewhat dictate the shape and form that it takes. Perhaps the story of your body’s life post-living is a tragedy or a comedy, a satire, or a farce. Only you can find out.

Content Warnings:

  • Death/Dying
  • Decomposition/Rot
  • Bodies/Burial

Inspired by: 

Format is a single very-long image or page meant to be scrolled up and down as you play, mirroring the depth of dirt and earth changing and accumulating over time.

My very quick submission for the MS Paint TTRPG Jam.

Hey ! Another very interresting idea. I might try the mecanism with another setting (crossover with A Sunless Space during the struggle creation)

There is a small issue though on the card "YEARS" : the choice 6 is cut. Should it be followed by "TIME BEVER STOPS" ? Or a reroll ?


Yea, I'm not sure what happened there (this was a pretty quick one as part of a game jam). I'd go with "6. New life has sprung from your remains. What kind of thing is it that grows up from this place? TIME NEVER STOPS."
