Domains is a roleplaying game of character horror, in which players tell a story of survival, dread, and their character's deepest struggles. The system incorporates a roll mechanic that shapes the story while giving consequences for unpreparedness and haste. The characters will grow during the game in an organic manner, adapting to the challenges they face. Or die trying. Game Masters (Overseers for the sake of having a fancy name) have the ability to turn any kind of character failure into a dramatic scene of survival.
