    This morning, feeling dissolute and literary, as I often do, I was casting about the internet for inspiration, only to stumble upon my weekend plans: getting “Trapped in a Cabin with Lord Byron,” or rather, playing this hilarious one-page RPG created by Oliver Darkshire. After all, everyone knows what can happen when you’re left inside with Byron for too long.

    Darkshire runs the Twitter account for the antiquarian bookseller Sotheran’s—and posted this RPG back in March. Well, I missed it! In case you did too, please enjoy:
