About the adventure

The roads around Esher Vineyard are no longer safe. Villagers have been vanishing, blood has been found on the road. Most recently a rumor spouts that a flayed body was found ritually displayed in the woods just off the main road. As the night falls you are on your way to find respite at Esher Villa, but would the Villa offer safety, or just new dangers? Beasts of Esher is a mystery horror game that has a balanced mix of role-play, exploration, and combat.

Gameplay details

This is a one-shot, so no session 0, but we can discuss in advance in Discord or here to see that we're all on the same page. This game will have some adult themes (mostly mentioned by NPCs as things that happened). If at any point anyone feels uncomfortable, raise a hand or a voice or send a DM on Discord, and we'll figure it out.
