The world is dark. The gods are distant. You are not special. You WILL be helpless. You will not wade through the bodies of your enemies as you amass treasure. Instead, you will shiver in the dark, listening to those *things* move about on the other side of the door. If you're lucky, you'll still be alive in the morning. But make no mistake, there are far worse things than death.

Your end will be tragic.

--------------------

This D&D game will be different than most you have experienced before, and you will need to discard most of your usual assumptions at the door. You will not be an elite hero gathering treasure; you will be someone caught up in things far bigger than you that frankly you had no business disturbing. The world will seem to be against you, and it will be. You will be constantly struggling to survive with what you can wrench from the covetous clutches of fate in a dark world that waits patiently, eagerly, for you to trip up. Then it will pounce, and gobble you whole.

This will not be a power gamer friendly game. It is not about amassing cool gear and supernatural abilities. It's about characterization, story, and the agonizing struggle to maintain humanity and hope in the face of insurmountable tragedy.

Mechanically the game is based on 2nd Edition AD&D, but it has been heavily modified. Thematically, it is Gothic Fantasy/Horror. If it sometimes seems more like a Call of Chtulhu Fantasy game, I'll know I'm doing it right.

I'm looking for strong roleplayers who want to explore the complexities of their characters' emotions and fears. If you've never played in a game like that before, no worries! Everyone has to start somewhere, and I require only that you be willing to try.
