About the adventure

Something is wrong here. Very wrong. One part Stephen King, one part Lovecraft, and one part Illuminatus! Trilogy, WELCOME TO SCENIC DUNNSMOUTH is a Monster of the Week campaign delving into a New England town with a strange history of witch trials, bizarre cults, eldritch horrors, and temporal dislocations. Each week, we'll explore the strange history and citizens of Dunnsmouth, and slowly uncover the horrific truth that hides just below the surface of this quaint coastal town. What exactly is going on? You'll have to play to find out! This game is open to everyone - no experience with TTRPGs necessary. If you want to have fun playing modern-day monster hunters investigating supernatural mysteries (Think Supernatural, Buffy/Angel, X-Files, etc.) or you just have a love for the absurd, this is the game for you!

Additional Details

How to prepare

You'll need the following: A computer or laptop. Cellphones will not accommodate the websites we use. A mic so we can hear you. A camera we can see you (preferably). Internet Access. An imagination and the willingness to have fun. Everything else will be provided. You roll your own dice (two normal six-sided) or there are digital dice on the website you can use.

What I provide

I have form-fillable PDFs to track your characters, digital maps, tokens, visual aids, digital dice-roller, and everything else we need to play. I bring 30 years of experience GMing games, and a safe, open environment where you can learn to play a great RPG and meet new people!

Gameplay details

I run a safe, welcoming game where everyone is respected and we adhere to certain safety protocols. My primary priority is for everyone to have fun. Please review this one-page PDF before signing up or playing: I have a zero-tolerance policy for bullying, sexual harassment, racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, or any other prejudicial behavior. Those who can't abide by these standards will be asked to leave with no refund.

How will character creation work

Before play, you'll pick a fillable Playbook PDF and download it from here: I'll schedule a free session zero with you to make your character and go over the rules. Then, during the first session we'll introduce the characters and create bonds between them. Then it's off to the races! You won't need to do anything else but follow the links I send you before the game. Everything else we'll do together!
