this adventure is fantastic and i could see myself running it in multiple different systems, including 5e, cypher, masks, and more! incredibly evocative and descriptive!
A downloadable one-shot
Shub-Rhadaman is a train that runs in only one direction: to the City of the Dead. The players, as living beings, do not want to go there. They will have the lowest possible social status in the afterlife — lower even than ghostly destitutes and criminals, and those get burned as industrial fuel. In order to escape, however, they must halt the train before it reaches its sole stop. They can't simply jump off en route — the train runs through a lightless, timeless, total void.
They may wish to put some thought into who it could be that they pissed off.
