Nice! Dawn is gonna be pissed Sun is dead, though. Maybe talk your way through it? I love the setting/story. The different locations or reasons you have to work with are humorous and make my human body rock with laughter. I don't like 50% fails, but you've made it so it's just a complication instead of a complete and utter failure. Which is very nice! I would play this a bit more openly and not corner my players into just trying to get rid of the body. Maybe a Weekend at Sun's scenario happens?

At first I thought, if the Sun is dead, why will there be dawn? Then I realise Dawn might be the name of a person, perhaps a cop.

Anyway, I enjoy reading your game. It has great setting and humour. Well done!

Thanks! My thinking was that when the sun fails to rise at dawn it'll be evident that something's wrong and there'll be too much heat to hide the body, butthat's a good interpretation too. I'm not gonna J.K. Rowling this.
