With sunset your world gets cursed. By a love so great some call her evil. As death did not part them, the Ghost of the Nightrider will hunt down whomever dares to disturb the peace of his beloved Night. Still, there is a threefold hope to end his reign of darkness: The spell of a suffering heart, a sword called Echo and the long-forgotten secret of surfing the sound.

The modules “Joker” and “Audience” now allow us to present “The Song of the Nightrider” to a musical public and to run a professional Kickstarter campaign (crowdfunding) starting in May 2023.
