A downloadable game
But only a host of phantom listeners
That dwelt in the lone house then
Stood listening in the quiet of the moonlight
To that voice from the world of men:
Stood thronging the faint moonbeams on the dark stair,
That goes down to the empty hall,
Hearkening in an air stirred and shaken
By the lonely Traveller's call.
And he felt in his heart their strangeness,
Their stillness answering his cry...
– "The Listeners" by Walter De La Mare
Visitation is an atmospheric, collaborative storytelling game in which a spectral Visitor attempts to relay the details of their death to the Living. (Alternatively, it is a game in which the Living endeavor to help the Visitor accept the fact that they are dead and may move on.) It was created for the #GentleGhostJam and #SpiritsEveFest.
The instructions are available as a black-and-white trifold brochure that may be printed out double-sided and as a four-page PDF in 16pt font (also b&w).
While Visitation was designed in part to help Lenormand readers familiarize themselves with the cards, an alternative version can be played by substituting any oracle deck or by creating your own with index cards.
