A Parable of Weak Flesh by Jay Crisostomo IV

Play Duration: 45 minutes

Characters: 3 Male, 1 Female


A mysterious flesh wall is erected on the edge of the known world. It is composed of a facade of stretched skin which stretches to infinity. Humanoid beings stick out from the wall in various degrees of agency. In its quest for expansion and understanding, mankind has traversed the great distance between the livable lands and the wall.

Centuries of mythmaking have led the Realm of Man to believe that the answers to all their problems lie beyond the wall. And now more than ever they are in need of a catholicon to cure plagues, end famine, and conquer death.
