RED LANTERNS

RED LANTERNS (2015 alpha draft, unplaytested) is a double feature of short, live, freeform games for 5 players. Both games focus on Chinese women spies in 1939 and were loosely inspired by classic works of modern Chinese literature, specifically Ding Ling's short story "When I Was in Xia Village" (1941) and the revolutionary opera The Red Lantern (1965, rev. 1970).

On Leave sees a famous writer become entwined in local affairs while on mandatory rest in a rural village.

The Code follows a pair of urban residents as they help to pass a critical message through enemy territory. 

Note that this document is designed to be printed two pages to a sheet, so the pages for the two different games sit across from each other.
