Bacchanal is two or three hours of GM-less roleplaying for two to six players. Characters are non-residents of Puteoli fleeing accusations of infractions against the Empire. Gameplay follows the characters through events of wine, debauchery, and the cruel sporting of gods, as they struggle to evade soldiers and accusers, and reunite with a companion from whom they have been separated. You will need a cheese tray, wine glasses, and an assortement of polyhedral dice.
It is late summer in Puteoli, south of Rome, 61 A.D., when the city finds itself playing unexpected host to the god Bacchus. Caught up in the madness of wine, the citizens throw off their togas and mingle as equals with slaves and foreigners in a debased fervor. Your own plans for a hasty departure are lost to this decadence, which separates you from the companion with whom you would travel.
