About the adventure

A sleepy desert town where nothing is quite as it seems. You play Citizens of Night Vale, randomly selected each night via psychic lottery for mandatory civil service, forced to work at the behest of the enigmatic City Council, and help solve problems around town. What specific problems should you solve? That's up to you, but the evening RADIO broadcast will give you some leads. And remember, if you see something, say nothing, and then drink (from your city council issued hip flask) to forget. Welcome to Night Vale is a suspense & mystery adventure game with a heaping tablespoon of the absurd thrown in for flavor. This is a game for players who enjoy city-centric games, investigation, thrilling combat, and the occasional scare. Fans of the Podcast will enjoy a wealth of callbacks as various storylines are turned into RPG adventure hooks.

Additional Details

How to prepare

Players will need a mic. Knowledge of the rules is great, but I am no stranger to teaching it. You will either make your own character (Pathfinder 2e's character creation system is simple and straightforward), or you can use and alter one of the pregens I have made for the One-Shot version.

What I provide

I take care of everything except creating your character, and even then, I can help. If you, want, I can make you a token for your character, if obsessively perusing pinterest for character art isn't your thing.

Gameplay details

Each chapter will start with a transmission from the local Remote Auditory Dissemination of Important Occurences (RADIO for short) station, followed by the players being summoned to City Council where they are allowed to ask questions of their strange and inscrutable leaders. They then grab a bite to eat and discuss which problem in Night Vale to solve, before heading off to make their community a better place... at least, that's the plan. Often, there will be bungled investigations, vengeful antiques, murderous livestock, dire prophecy, and more, as agents struggle to resolve some new existential threat to Night Vale. Each problem not addressed can become worse over time, so agents need to choose wisely and act quickly. Or not... it's all a part of the fun. Content Warnings: This game features elements of Violence, Suspense, and intense Drama. Safety Tools: In this game, we will be using the X card system to address any potentially traumatizing content. Players are encouraged to let reach out ahead of time to inform me of any potentially triggering content so that I may better customize the game for them.
