Hardboiled detectives. Wartime spies. Investigators of the uncanny.
Such are the intrepid heroes of AGAINST THE UNKNOWN!
Against the Unknown is a streamlined take on the GUMSHOE system, preserving its investigative core while speeding up character creation and play.
- Quick character generation: background cards provide skill packages so that you can create the character you want and ensure a range of key abilities across the group.
- Unified abilities: all used diceless for investigative purposes, and added to die rolls for general tests.
- Intuitive tracking of physical and mental harm (Damage and Shock): players can voluntarily suffer harm to boost die rolls - will you put your body or sanity on the line to succeed?
- Usable with existing GUMSHOE materials.
