The Karma Club
The Karma Club is set in the lodge of the Karma Club commune in Wells River, New Hampshire. The commune has been hosting a sending-off party for their guests, rock band Marmalade Skies.
Marmalade Skies had been invited to perform at a 3-day rock concert in Woodstock. Unfortunately their tour bus has broken down. Unable to make it to the concert, they are spending the weekend at the Karma Club commune before embarking on a 5-month U.S. tour.
The tour bus is now fixed and in the morning Marmalade Skies resume their tour. Tonight is the chance for one last party. Unfortunately, it has been marked by tragedy - Marvin Stank, Marmalade Skies's manager, has been found murdered!
Break out your bellbottom jeans, wide belts, tie-dyed and paisley shirts - and join us at The Karma Club!
The Karma Club lasts for about four hours and is suited to an evening. It is often played over a meal – a finger buffet if possible to allow guests to circulate and talk in private.
The free introductory pdf file contains an introduction to the game, a list of all the characters, an invitation to send to your guests, a copy of the Wells River Gazette, the history of Marmalade Skies and of the Karma Club commune – plus details of how to buy the game.

How Freeform Games Murder Mysteries Work
The Karma Club is unlike many murder mystery games. Although the game starts with a murder, most of the characters have more important things to do than to investigate it. And the killing may not be over – it is unlikely that everyone will survive the remainder of the evening!
The Karma Club is played just like a murder mystery game. You may be trying to solve the murder, but primarily you are (initially at least) concentrating on your own goals and objectives. Unlike most boxed murder mystery games, The Karma Club lets you decide how to achieve your goals and thwart your enemies.
On the evening of the game the guests are met by the organizer, Deputy Kozlowski, and welcomed to the Karma Club commune. They then receive their detailed backgrounds - including dark secrets, objectives and money. The fun then begins as they form alliances, blackmail each other, steal items and maybe even try to murder one another! Along the way they may uncover some of the mysteries of The Karma Club. Was this fateful collision of Marmalade Skies and the Karma Club a coincidence, or karma? Will Marmalade Skies recover and secure new management before the tour kicks off tomorrow? Or will they crack and disband under the weight of this tragedy? Where are the master tapes from the Rough Ride Home sessions? Is the Karma Club really the haven of peaceful harmony it pretends to be? What are the true identities of local bank robbers "Bonnie & Clyde?" Depending on what the players choose to do, there are several different possible endings, but finally everyone finds out how they did, and what secrets everyone else was concealing.
