Riding the Ley Line
A downloadable game
You live and work in two (or more) different dimensions. There are both benefits and difficulties to this, and one of the things it affects is your commute. To get to work, you ride the Ley Line, a transit system that is capable of ferrying you and others safely between very different worlds.
Riding the Ley Line is a small, reflective LARP for one or more players to enjoy as a relaxation and imagination exercise while riding public transit.

Riding The Ley Line is a commuting larp played in the liminal space between your home and work.
The digital version of Ley Line is two pages and in rtf format. It's easy to read, and important sections are bolded, but it's not visually grabbing.
The physical version, on the other hand, is. It's got neat art and a great color balance, and it's available right above this, under the Exclusive Content heading.
Mechanically, Ley Line is simple. You play by thinking and imagining, and by overlaying a fantasy over your boring regular commute.
It's probably best played on a train, as---even though the game doesn't have you roll any dice---it's got a lot of specific prompts that might be tricky to look up from behind the wheel of a car.
The writing *is* great, and the game is clear and evocative.
Overall, if you want to add a touch of mysticism to your commute, Lay Line is an excellent pick.
