About the adventure

Everything you know seems to be coming to an end. The Empire of Rul is collapsing as it's legions rebel, the elves come from their hidden kingdoms to steal people away, the dead do not rest, and all fortunes read tell only of doom. For the brave and foolhardy, this time is a golden opportunity to secure a better life. As monsters flee the wilds and safety becomes a distant memory people are looking for any hope. Outcasts, monster hunters, and dreamers are in high demand. You are one such group of people. Horrors of Rul is an episodic dark fantasy adventure where players are encouraged to travel the continent and cause or solve problems as they see fit. Cast powerful spells, play actually good martial classes, and mix and match! Shadow of the Demon Lord is a fun and exciting system that allows players to build themselves as they like over time. If you long for a gritty and dark fantasy world where danger is real and your victories are earned try this game out!

Gameplay details

This game will contain violence, body horror, alcohol use, character death, fire, and gore. This game will have a session 0 for character creation and to establish Lines and Veils. Lines and Veils are safety tools used to discuss what players don't want in the game. A line is content that players don't want to see in the game at all, and Veils are content players want to have only vaguely referenced or hinted at. The game will have a break at the two hour mark if the game is continuing beyond that point. Additionally, this game has an open table policy. If a player needs to leave for any reason they can feel free to do so.
