I got to play this in an online game facilitated by the game's creator and absolutely loved it. I'm glad we were able to honor the wishes of Rider's lover but damn if I'm not gonna miss her having my back out there in The Wall.
Rider's Last Rites
A downloadable game
Felix Rider, a First-Class Pilot of the Ninth Guard, has fallen in battle. Inside Valiant Fox rests enough parts to repair other fighting units in the fleet, but it would mean giving up whatever is left of Rider's personality, and violating her wishes to be burned alongside Valiant Fox.
Rider's closest friends gather to remember her, and to decide what is right.
A one-shot freeform RPG about what the dead and dying leave behind. For 4 players, over the course of an hour or so.

Content Notes: This game is about what we choose to do with the dead and the dying. It touches on themes of palliative and end-of-life care. It is framed by the death of a soldier during wartime.
