A downloadable tabletop RPG

Dark Maria is a rules-light system for mystery solving adventures, regardless of genre.   

The premise of this system is that crimes are still being committed while the players are investigating. This pressure means that the longer the players take, the more likely a new crime is to occur (as represented by the crime deck). Furthermore insight points, needed to see all the inferences of clues, are limited. The players will have to decide which clues are valuable and which are red herrings. But above all, the players want to solve the crime before the Dark Maria is drawn and the mastermind is able to do something that cannot be undone. . .
