The highway of tears
A sad and shamanic road movie in the immense forests of the Far North
A role play by Thomas Munier Essential
These days. Across the Canadian Forest, A never-ending road. Young amerindians hitchhiking. Disappearance. A sad and shamanic road movie in the immense forests of the Far North.
What happened to the missing? Will we find them ? Who is responsible ? Whether you are close to one of the missing, a road user, a member of the police who does Research, a volunteer who organises beatings, a Hitchhiker, a forest resident, an Indian who survives in poverty or one of those impossible people who lurks in the region... the road won't spare you.
This text is a scenario for the role-playing games Inflorenza (heroes, bastards and martyrs in the forest hell of Millevaux) or Inflorenza Minima (cruel tales in the forests of Millevaux).

It is also a role-playing game in its own right thanks to the last chapter : The Rules on board (which are a condensed version of Inflorenza Minima).
The highway of Tears works on a scenario of situations : places, characters, ideas, rumors. You can read it to the players.
