Board Description

"Old friend, what are you looking for?

After those many years abroad you come

With images you tended

Under foreign skies

Far away from your own land."

George Seferis

"The only emperor is the emperor of ice cream."

Wallace Stevens

SALEM'S DUSK

a map by Cumberdale

**PLEASE READ**

This Description file is rather important.

1. This is a LIMITED ATTACKS game. Yeah, that's right. At least CONTINUOUS attack is enabled. You can try and change that if you want but it plays a pretty important part in the game...you'll understand in a second. As in like, rule 2 directly below.

2. The streets and avenues defend with a 1 sided dice. Yes, I know that its cruel but it's important to get yourself indoors when night comes along. Ah...now that limited attacks thing makes a little more sense.

2. Staying at home ain't bad, but staying there forever is just waiting to be worm food...still that heavy front door should give you a +1 to defense from the streets. Likewise the stores provide a similar bonus.

3. Barlow watches over Jerusalem's Lot from the loft of the abandoned church. He has a habit of "dropping in" to visit townspeople in own their homes. That's right, the belltower can attack directly into the homes.

The town of Jerusalem's Lot is a quiet place by day. At night, things get a little crazy. People get a little extreme sometimes and occasionally accidents occur. Now ever since that Barlow fellow moved in, things have been crazier than ever. Seems every morning, some fool's body gets found, empty of blood and soul.

Good Luck!

and thanks for playing,

Cumberdale
