Narrative roleplaying in our memory of Vietnam. 

carry is a game focused on the experience of being a soldier in the Vietnam war. Heavily inspired by the films Platoon and Full Metal Jacket and the novel The Things They Carriedcarry is designed to provide a serious roleplaying experience in the tradition of these sources. 

This is the revised edition of the game, incorporating a decade of experience to expand, clarify and revise the game to make it both easier and more effective in play.

carry is a game that may make players nervous, and it should. There is a tendency in RPGs to address serious issues through a lens of fantasy, but carry makes no compromises. - Play This Thing Review
