About the adventure

Monster of the Week is a standalone action-horror RPG for 3-5 people. Hunt high school fiends like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, travel the country to bring down unnatural creatures like the Winchester brothers of supernatural, or head up the government investigation like Mulder and Scully. Heck, you can even get a bit FRINGE about it. Hunt down monsters like Balkan vampires, Werewolves, and other-dimensional creatures. Use hunter types like "the crooked" and "the spell-slinger". Grab the fireplace poker and get your spell book. Those monster's are going down! Each mission is a stand alone but, I welcome returning players to use established characters who have survived past missions.

Additional Details

How to prepare

You will not need a web cam but you will need a microphone and working speakers or headset. You will need a working monitor. You will need a discord account and a Roll20 account, both of which are free. Play will be through Roll20. You may create a character or use a pre-generated character. Please review the "Playbooks" to see what kind of character you might want to play and review the "Hunter Reference Sheet" as well for your core game mechanics.

What I provide

A movie's worth of action and adventure in a one of a kind session. No two games will play the same.

Gameplay details

Every mission is different but, generally speaking, the hunters will get a tip that something strange is putting "normies" in danger. It's up to them to research what the cause might be, figure out how to fight it and save the day. As the "keeper" I will put challenges out there for you but I never roll the dice. This game really works a lot on player interaction. Your rolls and descriptions really drive the action. Rule of cool is very much in play.

How will character creation work
