About the adventure

Darkness has fallen over the Abington estate. Where there was once a vast, all-encompassing family lineage with a finger in all of the CRT Television markets of the world, with the rise of the flatscreen, all has come to ruin. With only a small number of relatives left to represent them, the Abingtons have long abandoned their ancient estate, saying that it is cursed. That wouldn't be a problem for you, except local land developers want to turn it into a series of condominiums. And that won't happen if someone can't figure out why people just keep dying horrifically there. Gather the gang together. It's time to crack the case!

How to prepare

A good webcam and microphone are a requirement. Make sure they work, and that you can use Discord. This game is entirely theater of the mind, so the only thing we really need is Discord and a relevant dice bot.

What I provide

If it becomes an ongoing campaign, I'll ask an artist friend of mine to draw illustrations of the player characters.
