An Ecumenical Matter

An Ecumenical Matter is set in the diocese of Peaky-in-the-Sea, following the tragic death of Father Francis. As Father Francis was going to be promoted to the position of Bishop of the Diocese of Peaky-in-the-Sea (Rocky Island, Stony Island and Pebbly Island), this now leaves the position open…

Go on, go on, go on, go on … and satisfy your inner nun (or priest) is this not-very-reverent freeform.

An Ecumenical Matter is a freeform for 15 players. By the way, this game could be quite offensive to the very religious! It contains comedy priests, comedy nuns, comedy satanists and comedy alcohol!

An Ecumenical Matter is available in pdf format (£10 via Paypal) or paperback book format (£10 + postage from
