Justice By The Negra Sombra
A downloadable game
This is a violent role-playing game where players have to enact utterly despicable characters. Their past acts could very well deserve the death they will unavoidably suffer at the end of the session, since the Negra Sombra will stop at nothing until she succeeds.
The story was inspired by a poem by Rosalía de Castro called A xustiza pola man (Justice by my own hand). A woman is made homeless by her heartless neighbors and is left to survive in the meadows with her starving children. Seeing that the judges mock her and God ignores her plights, the enraged woman grabs a sickle, breaks into her neighbors' house and carries out justice.
The setting is Galiza, in the northwest Iberian Peninsula, during the 19th century. The population was mostly rural, although there were some big cities in development, like Santiago de Compostela, A Coruña or Vigo.
