Unnatural storms and terrifying waves forced your ship to shore. Now you’re stuck here, in this dirt poor town, drenched in the smell of cheap whiskey and rotten fish. As poverty and politics consume the town, and folklore tales come to life, you will face harsh realities and even harsher choices. You and your crew must make deals, find answers, and pick sides.

Alas for the Awful Sea is a PbtA game that explores the bitter dilemmas facing starving towns torn apart by crime and loss. To tell this story, it delves into the fantastical, weaving in folktale elements that mirror the beliefs and struggles of the town. Based on the rich myth of the Scottish Hebrides, this folklore springs forth from the same desolate coastal landscapes that dominate the atmosphere of the game.
