    How to prepare

    You will need a microphone and optionally a webcam. Once you join the discord server linked in the Prep Materials you'll be assigned the correct role and will be able to access all the player materials and the Roll20 game. When it's game time, you'll need 2 six-sided dice or an online dice roller (Roll20 has one of these built in if you prefer that), and some paper to take notes on if you do that sorta thing.

    What I provide

    I'll provide access to PDF copies of all the required Monster of the Week books, a custom made Roll20 game, and a private discord server for coordination and communication.

    Gameplay details

    We will use X & O cards for this game, as well as Lines & Veils. CW: death, murder, supernatural horror, violence, alcohol use
