About the adventure

Seattle is a lush, evergreen city lying between Puget Sound and Lake Washington with abundant parklands, and surrounded by towering mountains and forests. Widely known for its overcast weather, when the sun does come out, the spectacular beauty of the waterways, forests and distant mountains combine to make Seattle one of the most stunning cities in the US. However, it seems that Sound Pharmaceuticals, a company that makes Seattle its home, is currently experimenting with darker elements for their own gain, zombies, magical creatures, and who knows what else. It is thanks to the owner and patrons of the Ye Olde Curiosity Shop that they have been delayed on their plans, but for how long? This Monster of the Week game is focused around the more comedic elements of the game and how the characters bounce off of each other. There are elements of the game that will delve into seriousness, but for the most part it is a collective of individuals that somehow connect to a Curiosity shop in Seattle. Every game session the characters will be trying to put the clues together on what exactly Sound Pharmaceuticals employees are currently experimenting with.

Additional Details

How to prepare

A player will need a mic at least, webcam is not required, and a discord account. A player does not have to have a thorough understanding of the rules, but needs to have a bit of imagination and willing to learn the rules as we play.

What I provide

I will bring the rule book, pre-generated characters to choose from, a discord to interact in, and a plot to hunt down.

Gameplay details

The game will be focused on the investigation into Sound Pharmaceuticals, mainly focused in on their board of directors and their minions. In between major portions of the investigation there will be smaller mysteries that will focus in on just oddities that happen in and around the city. Lines: Sexual Assault Bigotry Racism Extreme & Graphic Descriptions of Torture Veils Sexual Content (Fade to Black) Rats/ Mice (Sounds) Content Warning: I have highlighted the major warning as I see them from running this game regularly. However, other tags may come into play and will be discussed before these elements are brought in.

How will character creation work
