    About the adventure

    $10 for first session to try it out :) In late 19th century Sweden, there have been a string of bizarre happenings as more of the population moves toward the cities and technology is rapidly advancing. Strange creatures called Vaesen have been growing more bizarre and often times malicious in their actions in recent years. You, being someone with "The Sight", possess the ability to see these creatures and have taken it upon yourself to help solve the mysteries that are popping up because of them. This will follow a group of different investigators who can see the Vaesen and the many mysteries they will encounter throughout the long winter of Sweden. You will be returning to your home base of Upsala between excursions to recover, study, and wait for the next job to arrive. Between mysteries you will be able to explore and upgrade new sections of the castle that you have come to call your home as the re-founding members of The Society, a group that used to be dedicated to the studying of the Vaesen. Maybe the darker things in your pasts will come to light through your travels. Maybe you will learn new things about yourselves. Maybe the work will prove to be too much and break you. Maybe the lives you save and change will inspire you to continue on to even greater things. Let us find out together. This will be a darker campaign. This is a horror/mystery game and my GM style tends to cling to the more brutal side of narration, but I love to include deep emotions and play off character's backstories and connections. I would LOVE to stream these games on Twitch if people are willing to let me.

    Gameplay details

    We will work together to establish what everyone needs to feel comfortable. Tools I utilize: 1. Session 0 to set expectations. 2. Lines and Veils: Lines are hard limits on content and Veils are soft limits of things that are okay to include in the story but not to delve into scenes and/or details of. I will make note of anything that ought or needs to be avoided. 2. X, N, O Cards: Type "X" in chat to let me know that you are uncomfortable with what is happening or would like to discuss something in private. Type "N" in chat if you feel that a scene is heading toward an "X" moment. We will figure out how to adjust. Type "O" in chat to signify that you are okay to continue. I will usually prompt an "O" check, but feel free to use it whenever. 3. Debrief: After each session, we will check in as a group and discuss the night's events. I understand that RPG's can have a real-life impact on people and I want to ensure that impact is a positive one. 4. Honesty: I will always be incredibly open and honest about how I am doing and what my intentions are. For the betterment of all players involved, I ask that we all maintain an open line of communication. Fun becomes a challenge in something as complex as an RPG when communication is not present.
