Epitaph is an intimate look at the events that shape a person’s life. During play, you’ll explore the timeline of someone who has died (called the Departed) in order to gain gradual insight into their world, their identity, and their history. Their life is a story that starts at the end, then jumps freely backward and forward to their most important moments. As you create their story, you’ll discover who this person was and what made them special. Explore the life of…

…a devoted grandmother whose dream of owning her own restaurant came true…

…a bold captain who married her archrival and became the most infamous pirate in the Viridian Isles…

…a sensitive soldier in the trenches who didn’t make it home alive…

…an arrogant wizard who strove to unlock ancient secrets and found more than he bargained for…

…or anyone else you can imagine. No matter who you create, you’ll come to know them as a unique individual whose life was messy, complicated, and beautiful.

Epitaph is GMless and requires no prep before play—just grab your friends around a table or via video chat, open the book, and start creating. The game features a variable level of role-playing commitment: on your turn you can describe a moment in time, create and play a scene with others, or give an interactive monologue as one of the characters from the story. The tone of the game is up to the players—it can be anything from lighthearted and goofy to bittersweet and tragic. Epitaph puts you inside the mind of a very ordinary person and leaves you feeling like you knew them.
