This game is guaranteed to be a DISASTER!

As the title says, you are members of the dance band on the Titanic. Some of you have played together over the years. You were hired by C.W. and F.N. Black to work on the White Star Line’s RMS Titanic, and given ticket number 250654 as a member of Wallace Hartley’s orchestra. Though your berths are second class, you pretty much have the freedom of the ship, since you were hired to entertain the first class passengers. In your free time, you can go almost anywhere on the ship.

There’s only one member you didn’t know until he arrived at the final rehearsal on land. Due to illness, the original bassist had to withdraw and was replaced by someone rather unknown to all of you, John Frederick Preston Clarke. He seems nice enough and hasn’t said much, but does play bass as well as any you’ve heard. Now for a nice long voyage and maybe a booking in New York on arrival.

This game is based on an idea from "Variation 7" by Mike Manolakes. You do NOT have to have read the book for the game though I recommend it. It was run with good results at Amber Central 2016.

What do players need to do to prepare for the game
Once I have the players list, I will send out the list of actual people who were in the band (and a bit of their history) and instruments they play (don't worry, I won't make you play). I will ask you to choose 3 characters and will sort out from who is chosen. There will be advantages and disadvantages to choose from available for players. No points, no dice or cards.
