"From birth, man carries the weight of gravity on his shoulders. He is bolted to earth. But man has only to sink beneath the surface and he is free."
- Jacques Yves Cousteau

The dead rise like the tides.

To learn more about how The Skeletons is played check out our primer episode.


The characters for this game:

Rusted Shirt (Chris Littler) - a humanoid skeleton armored in rusted chain and carrying a bent spear.

Big Head (Tim Rodriguez) - a skeleton with a silver amulet about its neck and a silver circlet about its swollen disproportionate skull.

Headless (Ken Breese) - a humanoid skeleton with no head wielding a pair of holy symbols.

Crawler (John Holt) - a bent humanoid skeleton with a fine coat and a chipped dagger.

 


The map for this game:

The tomb is a pyramid floating tip-down over a deep sea trench. The flat base rides just beneath the waves and a little deeper on the north and south side are air chambers to enter. From each of those chambers a pair of passages twist down towards the tip where sits the crypt. The coffin is suspended by chains from the tip.

Act I:

Act II:
