Fear Fetchers is a relatively simple d6-based role playing game where the players are Monsters who are out to gather fear by Scaring humans.
Most of the players will take on the role of Monsters: creations of darkness designed only to be spectacularly eerie. One of the players however will be the Monster Master, the evil S.O.B. that represents the monstrous overlords, the Scare-victims and everyone or everything else the players might encounter.
At its core Fear Fetchers is designed to be humorous. If at the end of the evening you’ve had a couple of good laughs about what happened at the gaming table, Fear Fetchers has done what it was designed to do. It’s possible to make the game dark and gritty, but that is up to the Monster Master.
