the riot starts is a gmless rpg for 3-6 players inspired by the musical hadestown by anaïs mitchell. it focuses on community-building and revolting against the oppressive capitalist hell of the underworld. 

i think this is a really cool system that would be easy to hack and make about other genres and goals, so if you want to do that, feel free! just credit me.

you'll need a bunch of six-sided dice, and a revolutionary spirit.
