A downloadable playset

"Waiting for Fiasco" is an unofficial playset for the Classic edition of the roleplaying game Fiasco, letting you play out disastrous existentialist dramas.

Nothing to Be Done

There's no meaning in the world except for what we give it, and that's ridiculous. We are thrown into the world and can't do anything about it,  and in the face of that, what are we to do? How are we to continue if the appropriate state of existence is dread and angst?

You are your life and nothing else. One must imagine Sisyphus happy.
