It's Grim Up North [Adult Freeform]
'The Kitchen Sink' is a 'slice of life' game set in the fictional city of Shaddingham sometime in the 1980s.  The concept of the game is rooted in the experience of the British working class of the period and the 'Kitchen Sink / social realism' genre of film of the mid / late 20th Century.

It is a time of social, cultural and economic upheaval.  Whilst in some parts of the country wealth increases as the middle classes become a nation of home owners and shareholders, in the industrial heartlands of the North communities are left to decay.  Thriving towns and villages become ghost towns overnight as industry closes leaving communities shattered.  Unemployment is rife, each day is a struggle to survive.  The government wages war on trade unions, crushing the power of collective struggle.  Families and communities are ripped apart, bitterly turning friends and colleagues against each other.

It is a time of civil unrest.  Stop and search laws disproportionately targets the community.  Young women and men are automatically assumed to be criminals by the police.  Elements of a disenfranchised working class blame their neighbours for their problems, not recognising the issues that affect them, affect all in their community.  Violence and terror a daily reminder on the news

And yet, weeds grow through the cracks in the concrete.  There is joy, laughter, happiness.  It is a time of change.  There are victories.  In the workplace, in the home, in the bedroom.  There are the shoots of acceptance within the community regarding sexuality, even if the conversations remain hard.  The war will be ultimately lost, but there are plenty of battles to be won.  Life may be grim, but you're all in it together....(and the music is good too!)


The characters are the poor, the dispossessed, the vulnerable with real troubles and  problems.  Stories of redemption and of healing.  Stories of people left behind in a world changing to fast for them....

Although this game will be player driven there will be GM-led events and support provided - the last thing wanted is players talking to themselves!  Knowledge of the setting is not essential although careful consideration will be given to all character submissions - if you want to play a supermodel who moonlights as airline pilot and world champion athlete this may not be the game for you.
