About the adventure

As the fog rolls in, bodies wash ashore in a coastal Maine town stalked by an unidentified creature. THE HOOK You've been called to a small, coastal Maine town with more tourists than residents. Usually. Over the past month, a body has turned up every Sunday, often mangled by a large animal. But rumors of a monstrous moose aren't the entire reason the corner called you. The bodies are missing internal organs (heart, liver, lungs, etc.) with no signs of surgery. ABOUT THE ONE-SHOT Within the Quiet Town is an investigative horror scenario inspired by Steven King and Alice Isn't Dead. Wherein, you interact with the town and its locations, as you attempt to hunt down the corrupted spirit before it outgrows your ability to do so. ABOUT WEREWOLF: THE APOCALYPSE 5E Werewolf is an urban fantasy roleplaying game connected to the World of Darkness. It focuses on stifling the Wyrm, avatar of entropy, and other threats to the natural order. Often through your abilities as a werewolf.

Additional Details

How to prepare

To participate in the adventure players will need: - a Roll20 account (it's free) - a Discord account (also free) - working microphone - and the ability to run all of them at the same time.

What I provide

All relevant PDFs, a game room optimized for helping you learn Werewolf 5th Edition, and specialization in running investigative games.

Gameplay details

To avoid dredging up unwanted topics for players and myself, I use Lines & Veils to determine what content won't appear (Lines) or skimmed over (Veils). You'll receive mine (essentially "PG13 please") upon signing up, along with Discord and Roll20 invites. If you feel uncomfortable during any point in the game, please tell me. Either verbally, by sending an X or N in the chat, or to me personally. I will immediately jump over the offending content as quickly as possible. I will also endeavor to scrub the rest of the adventure of similar content. Players are also encouraged to step away from the game as necessary for emotional and/or biological reasons.

How will character creation work

Players may use one of five pregenerated characters or make their own. If you choose the latter, the character must be completed in Roll20 prior to the start of the session. They should also be character creation fresh, featuring no advancements. P.S. If you want to create your own character and need help, please reach out. I can offer suggestions or help with Roll20 implementation.
