The supernatural awkward pubescent story: a sub-genre of speculative fiction    Articles  (Other Gaming)   (Gaming - Genre)

As gamers we have done the western with laser pistols, six shooters and steam tech.  Shadow run alone has covered more noir ground than MGM did between 1945 and 1955. I hope we managed the horror genre well, and the murder mystery almost always sneaks its way into our campaigns. But do we always know we are doing it?  Can genre sit right in front of us an yet go undefined?  I think it has happened and a speculative fiction genre of all things.

In the inaccessible plateau of Hor-Nushan, there was always little crime. But in late autumn comes a maddening wind, that can drive the best man crazy, if only for a short time, make him turn on himself or others. For murder, the locals have devised a special punishment: the murderer has to dig a well for the family of his victim. The area is very dry, and having a good well is a source of wealth and prestige. In this way, the murderer atones for his deed and repays the family; perhaps they even find peace.
