Okay, so times are tough, one thing lead to another, and now you've found yourself involved with resurrectionists... men and women who have taken to exploiting a valuable local resource: the bodies of the recently dead.

It could happen to anyone.

Specifically, it could happen for 2-5 players and a GM who want a rules-light framework to play games about grave robbers and their ilk. Hopping fences, dodging supernatural threats, risking your eternal soul, accepting money from individuals of dubious character. All that fun stuff.

The Quick and The Grave (or What's So Lucrative About Grave Robbing) was created for the What's So  Cool About Jam and employs a light touch for game mechanics as that implies. You roll some 6-sided dice sometimes.  Easy.

Love those sickly yellow and purples on the cover. I mean, I love the whole thing, but those colors are choice.
