About the adventure

You have been selected to investigate reports of paranormal activity at Rocky Point State Park in Warwick, RI. The site has a long history as a seaside attraction and is included in a number of local legends. The state park served as the home of an amusement park for almost 150 years, from 1847-1995, before falling vacant and then being slowly demolished over the next few decades. The state purchased the land and converted the location into a park that opened in 2014. You will have two days to speak with the designated contacts and perform your initial investigation of the site, after which you will be expected to report back whether the haunting(s) are credible or this is a hoax. About The W.A.T.C.H. RPG The W.A.T.C.H. is a tabletop role-playing game in which the players become paranormal investigators and cryptid hunters seeking evidence to prove or debunk sightings and encounters that have been reported to the agency. The easy-to-learn mechanics and character creation allow new players to quickly get into the game while still providing the flexibility to adjust to different styles of play. As a story- and character-focused system, each investigation can quickly take on its own flavor based on the desires of the players. The game master, called The Controller, serves as the narrator and mediator for sessions by establishing the location, setting the parameters of the investigation, and taking on the roles of the non-player characters. The players then take on the roles of an investigative team, which is where things get really interesting since they also decide on the type of team they will be playing. Are you government agents assigned to debunk reports of the supernatural, a reality TV crew looking for some new footage, or something else entirely?
