WARNING MATURE THEMES This is a group for new and experienced role players who are fans of darker and more mature games such as the World of Darkness series of Vampire the Masquerade, HP Lovecraft, Call of Cthulhu, etc. We emphasize the STORYTELLING aspect of RPG games. There are dice and rules but they do not take over the story, we play character-driven stories about people in difficult circumstances. Games include: Characters are called in to investigate a murder at a factory in 1920s New York, or tracking down the origins of a mysterious statue, or trying to understand why a spirit that has been haunting them, etc. The classic setting bases the game in the 1920's, however the rules also allow for the game to be set in Victorian times, or modern day, or indeed any time period with little change to the basic rules system. In the background is always the forces of darkness, the collection of creatures from Lovecraft's stories whose contact with mankind is often malevolent and harmful. The players take the roles of ordinary people drawn into the realm of the mysterious: detectives, criminals, scholars, artists, war veterans, etc. Characters must work together to uncover the strange and often unpredictable forces of evil. Mature players over 21+ years old preferred. Must enjoy wine and best if you are a fan of scary movies!
