A Roleplaying Game of Melancholy Horror
From the back of the book:
IT’S 3 AM. THERE’S SOMEONE IN YOUR HOUSE. THEY’RE GOING TO KILL YOU.
QUIETUS is a one shot, prepless RPG of melancholy horror. It’s a game for a GM and one or two players, and emulates tragic horror movies like Oculus, The Strangers, The Babadook, Inside and the Netflix version of The Haunting of Hill House. If a piece of fiction can make you cry and scream, then it’s a great model for the sort of stories that you can tell with QUIETUS.
Powered by a stripped down version of the award-winning Blades in the Dark engine, you’ll create characters with tragic backstories, and send them hurtling headlong into a nightmare where their past trauma might be the only thing that saves them.
