It’s November 17th, and despite the cold and work crunch, there’s a handful of students from Auriga College out in a lonely mountain field watching the meteor shower. It’s a beautiful clear night with a soft wind that rustles the pine trees, and the stars seem very close and bright, and time stretches like you could sit out here forever. There’s barely any light, yet the field is luminous, if chilly. This is the most peaceful the campus has felt since that one student died a month ago. Even when the stars begin to fall…

This is a low-plot, low-mechanics magical realism game focused on roleplay. It'll reward playing into your character’s feelings, pursuing connections, and making your own narrative choices.

Content warnings: drug abuse, suicide, freshman anxiety meltdowns, and dealing with the aftermath of a violent death.

This is a low-plot, low-mechanics, roleplay-focused game about a bunch of art students going through shit together. With some weirdness threaded through. It’ll reward playing into your character’s feelings, pursuing connections, and making your own narrative choices. It is unlikely to last the full four hours, but may run a little longer than three.

While the signup slots are all neutral, characters in this game do have preset genders, which include cis, trans, and enby.

This game contains themes of drug abuse, suicide, freshman anxiety meltdowns, and dealing with the aftermath of a violent death. Due to the small size of the game, it may be difficult to avoid dealing with any/all of the above, though there are roles which don't deal with these themes directly.
