Who Are You: More about The Myth of Self

The Edge has a way of making you face uncomfortable truths. Of stripping away the veneer of civility and rules and showing the true faces of people as they really are. Who are you? Take a stroll through the streets of Al Amarja and find out the true answer.

This adventure collection explores the concept of selfhood in Over the Edge first edition. Characters subordinated to an insect group-mind struggle for independence. Divine rapture threatens to obliterate the identity of everyone on the island. Method acting goes to the next level, and it isn’t good. And in an Al Amarjan subculture, people change personalities like their clothing.

Challenge and entertain your group with these four deeply-thought yet action-packed scenarios.
