    About the adventure

    Monster of the week is quick to pick up and crazy fun to play. Dice rolls, when failing, add a delightful amount of narrative tension. Bring your characters and be ready to engage in cooperative storytelling. The theme is the campy primetime horror monster hunting shows like Supernatural, Buffy, or even Scooby Doo. This campaign takes place in a fictional houseboat community in a dam reservoir. players engage in deciphering the clues of murder as well as dealing with the public and hunting down the monsters threatening the area. after session one the world will open up to the greater intricacies that implicate the balance of two cultures sharing a home. This rural adventure is chock-full of tension and intrigue, but in order to make that more enjoyable, I will be discussing what everyone's comfort level is with horror themes in a session 0.

    all information I will provide

    Gameplay details

    Players roll 2d6 to determine success. As keeper I will never roll dice, your failures make you fate's playthings and allow me to create danger. There tends to be copious planning in these games. Monsters are very dangerous in this game and you have to investigate and figure out how to beat them without perishing. at the end of each session players will gain experience by reminiscing on saving locals and what they learned about the other player's characters.
