"Monsters Weren't Real": Looking forward to my first game
« on: August 10, 2013, 06:19:18 AM »
I've persuaded a group of friends to let me run a game for them in a few weeks!

I've written a single-page "campaign setting" handout to get things started: http://www.jasonw.org.uk/MonstersWerentReal.pdf

Watch this space for the play report!

That's a *really* neat twist.  I immediately begin wondering if the reality of monsters is genuinely new, or if it's something that goes in cycles.  So, yeah, *some* of those old books will have accurate information -- and some will be flat-out superstition.  Hope you picked the right ones, bud, because that door isn't going to hold the ghouls back for much longer.

I look forward with great interest to game reports and more setting information.

Thanks! Yes, if the hunters are interested enough to find out they may eventually discover that "the magic" appears to have come and gone throughout history. What's causing it, how the cycles work, and whether they can influence or stop it are things we'll (hopefully) play to find out.
