Imp is a role playing game that uses a fantasy - mediaeval Britain as its setting. This is a Britain
where strange beasts roam the hills, malign faeries inhabit the forests and imps attempt to cause misery and strife to the people of the land.
The player characters portray the imps, struggling to survive and acquire malefic power. Imps must regularly perform malevolent deeds in order to retain their powers, and may only become stronger if they are very successful in this regard.
