Description

Fraying Threads: The Epidemic is a new crisis megagame, designed by Paul Howarth of Storyliving Games and Pennine Megagames, run in partnership with The Great Indoors. The game is focused on the impact of a viral epidemic in the West Midlands in the near future. Players will represent a number of agencies in their efforts to deal with the medical emergency and its impact on the fabric of society. Managing limited resources in a worsening situation they must assess situations, prioritise their responses and monitor the impact of their decisions, all whilst managing a chaotic and confusing situation. Limited aid will be available from outside the area, so despite their differing objectives, it will often be other local agencies who can provide the necessary aid. Roles will include:

- Local government officials, trying to maintain infrastructure and public services as normal life begins to unravel .
- Health professionals, dealing with frontline services and trying to support research into the virus.
- The Police, trying to maintain public order without the need for troops on the streets, as panic rises and people take advantage of the chaos.
- The Media, chasing ratings whilst also aware of the need for responsible reporting.
- The Security Services, investigating and providing support when authorised.
- Pharmaceutical professionals, ensuring that if anyone profits from this disaster it will be their company
- Team X, role to be confirmed nearer the game.
