Departed: Afterlife is a Conspiratorial Horror/Survival LARP game created by Mykal Lakim and published by Dark Phoenix Publishing. Departed is published using both the L.I.F.E system and the Infinte System as a part of the Wastelands of Damnation roleplaying series. Departed continues the story of Damnation moving beyond the realm of the living.
Departed is a game of journies and personal discovery. As you learn the rules and play with your friends you will be tested both morally and mentally as you step into a world defined by undefining it. Everything you know about death will be challenged as the afterlife is opened to you.
Departed: Afterlife is played using the L.I.F.E. System (Live-Action In Fantasy Environment). In addition to the games' rules the most important thing to memorize are the mechanics, based on the numerical value of four. The game can be played with a 12 sided dice or the traditional method of Throwing Chops (Rock, Paper, Scissors) making gameplay simple and easy to understand. In December 2012, Dark Phoenix Publishing announced the release of a Tabletop variant as well as another LARP varant known as Infinity which would simplify the mechanics of the game to appease gamers who felt number crunching was too difficult.
In the world of Damnation, death isn't the end. In Departed the rules are explained concerning character progression beyond death. In Departed, deceased characters are met with the reality of their death where they must face whatever lies in the afterlife. Reapers will challenge your stay in the afterlife while the demonic attempt to claim your soul for Hell and the tortures that would follow. Discover the land of the afterlife and attempt to navigate the Axis Mundi.
