Water-uphill World

         This is a role-playing game in the genre of C.S. Lewis' Narnia series or Frank L. Baum's Oz books: children from our world (and modern times) are transported to a fantasy world where strange things happen to them. The player characters in this case are four friends from a private school in Chicago who find themselves in a bizarre world where water runs uphill.

         They wander into the palace of the land's ruler (currently a regent acting for a young princess), where they found a place to stay and tried to make some sense of their strange surroundings.

Game Rules
My minimalist homebrew rules that I used for the game. In practice play was largely systemless. There was no combat and magic was handled dicelessly though with a defined system of sorts.
 
Excerpt from Kate's Journal
This is a journal of the events from a session or two during the middle of the campaign, written by Liz for a player who had missed it.
