Wormwood Mafia - Game Over
« on: February 15, 2023, 12:35:39 pm »

W O R M W O O D    M A F I A


Wormwood. Bitter, hardy and tough. Distilled to rough and heady liquors, triple figure proofs barely enough to numb you to the taste of soured earth. Ground into potent pharmakons, purging worms, bile and breakfast indiscriminately from invalids unlucky enough to need it. It hardly burns and doesn't taste good. You wouldn't call it pretty.


Life. Bitter, hardy and tough. The land here isn't good for much. Rocky slopes, dry soil, heaps of scree, and blasting winds see to that. But it's good for wormwood. Ruthless enough to outcompete the local weeds, stunting their roots with subtly poisoned soil, too wiry and bitter for parasites or beasts, it survives the winds and frosts with a whiteknuckle deathgrip on the poor fields and stony crevices. The people aren't too different.


You get by. Sure, it's the wrong end of Canada, a shoddy nameless town crouched in a nowhere valley in the Northwestern Territory, an unlikely congregation of opportunists, sharp dealers, roughnecks, and last-chancers. But as long as the harvest comes in and the wagons roll away piled with greenery and dark bottles, they bring back a thin trickle of food, fuel and frontier barter. Not much, but enough to survive.


So when black rings of festering Wormrot appear on leaves, townsfolk worry. And when Wormrotten plants are found uprooted, cut up, and spread over healthy crops, they start looking for a culprit.

I tried to play chess but two of my opponents were playing competitive checkers as a third person walked in with Game of Thrones in hand confused cause they thought this was the book club.

Welcome to the subforum!


That's nine in theory, but I know Knightwing is taking a week's sabbatical, so if someone else wants to hop in in the meantime, I'll probably start the game with them.

To be honest there's some self-interest at play here, because the sooner we get this show on the road, the sooner I get to play his BYOR game  :P

Technically, you could replace Knightwing64 with notquitethere and start immediately....
