The Strange


Theater of the Mind

About the adventure

There are worlds that exist beyond our own. Innumerable, some created from our own imagination, fears and mythologies. And others born of the thoughts of beings best described as alien. The space that connects all possible worlds is known as the Strange. In this place are beings that only wish to consume all worlds. As agents of the Estate you will explore alternate realities, defend the earth from ravenous forces, and even create worlds of your own.

How to prepare

A desktop/laptop with microphone is necessary. Those who want can use video. You'll need a DISCORD and Roll20 account (both are free). No experience or understanding of the system is necessary- I specialize in teaching new games to people! If you like Monte Cook games have a pretty solid introductory video to the game-

How will character creation work

Pre-generated characters are available. For players who want we can meet up ahead of the session to work out a character. In the Strange your character is a "ADJECTIVE NOUN who VERBS", so most of character creation is selecting three things from a list of options. Are you a "CHARMING VECTOR (physical type) who LOOKS FOR TROUBLE"? Or maybe a "SKEPTICAL SPINNER (social type) who SERVES AND PROTECTS"?

Players can expect

  • Combat/Tactics: Medium
