The Fear Itself RPG
plunges ordinary people into a disturbing contemporary world of madness and violence. Players take the roles of regular folks much like themselves, who are inexorably drawn into confrontation with the creatures of the Outer Black, an unearthly realm of alien menace. With or without its distinctive mythology, GMs can use it to replicate the shudders and shocks of the horror genre in both film and literature. Powered by the GUMSHOE
investigative roleplaying system, Fear Itself 2nd Edition
is ideal for one-shot horror games (where few, if any, of the protagonists are expected to survive), or ongoing campaigns in which the characters gradually discover more about the disturbing supernatural reality that hides in the shadows of the ordinary world. Will they learn how to combat the darkness? Or spiral tragically into insanity and death?
This edition features:
* Support for multiple different types of play, from bloody one-shots to mini-series and extended investigative campaigns
* Extensive advice for GMs on designing and running mystery games
* Revised psychic powers
* More monsters, plus detailed monster design rules
* Updated rules that draw from more than ten years of GUMSHOE development and play experience, to deliver the ultimate in personal horror roleplaying.
Fear Itself 2nd Edition also includes three sample scenarios a one-night adventure, a mini-series, and a full campaign.
