THE LADY AFTERWARDS

* Due to the handcrafted nature of this product, this package will now not arrive before the new year. 

In partnership with Weather Factory, The Lady Afterwards is a boxed TTRPG (Table-Top Role Playing Game) for 2-8 players set in 1920s Alexandria.

Uncover a world of mystery and occultism with the help of a few friends! This tabletop game is set in the world of the Secret Histories, where hidden gods watch over a world of apocalypse, yearning and forbidden arts. It's designed for people who've never played TRPGs / tabletop games before, as well as experienced players.

Track down Audrey Leigh Howard, a woman of high standing and dubious morals. Investigate a suspicious gentlemen's club. Abort a plan. Avert a crisis. Or - depending on your choices - let the blow fall.

Amazing packaging - appears well thought out.

I’m not a “gamer” per se - I know what they are and have sat in on a couple back in college. My son likes them and we thought he’d like this as a gift. Buying this was pretty easy - the website was easy to navigate and it was easy to choose the game I bought. I was worried that I had to provide additional multi-sided dice, but the game came with everything he needed to play the game.

The package arrival was a little cloudy - I wasn’t sure where my package was or when it would arrive (I needed to download a third-party app to track the package and I didn’t want to do that…). I don’t think this is reflective of the seller - shipping in November or December is always a question mark.

The crate was well packaged and protected. The game came in a hinged wooden box (think large cigar box) that looked pretty cool.

All the props were very cool and decently made - (aged and themed up - definitely a good detail) and all the maps, rule books and character sheets were well produced. I don’t expect this stuff to hold up to daily use, but I think they are awesome and add to the theme of the game.

Gameplay: I don’t know - this was a gift for my son. Based on the detail of the rule book and quality of props, I expect the game to provide sufficient challenge to be fun.

My son plays these games on-line with friends who live in other states…. I don’t see this as an issue - I think navigating on-line play is feasible without sacrificing the quality of the hands-on props.

I didn’t…
