I will be demoing The Unexplained at TotalCon 2012 this COMING WEEKEND. It’s a great con in Mansfield, MA. With the great staff and people, I always enjoy gaming there.
I’ll be demoing the game the best way, by running 4 full-length con events! Here are the writeups of them:
Centralia, PA is a real ghost town. It was the victim of an underground mine fire that has literally been burning since the 1960’s. The town has been evacuated and all roads have been rerouted. Sink holes have appeared in places that spew hot gasses. But even after all these decades, some of the town is still standing. You have come here to find evidence of the ghosts and spirits of those who died here. But once you arrive, you may never leave…
House of the Dead
The Old Abbot House is famous. According to local legend, a member of a Satanic cult once owned the house and performed horrible rituals there. It all ended with everyone in the house dying mysteriously. There have been many owners since, but none have stayed long. Each time, the owners would flee in panic, or die in the house. The Foundation for Paranormal Investigation has bought the house to save it from demolition. Your team is being sent in to investigate the house and learn the secrets that are held within. Can you get to the bottom of the mystery, or will you become another occupant of the house of the dead?
What if the crazy stories that “The Weekly World News” publishes are true? Bat Boy is real, aliens have befriended the president, and Bigfoot kidnaps women for love slaves. Well, that’s “The Chronicle.” You all know that the supernatural exists, and you go out looking for the real scoop! A New York City businessman with ties to the Mob is sent to the hospital in upstate New York with a strange case. He says he saw a woman in the woods that was so beautiful he went blind! Could this be a real case of a Nymph, or could it be something more sinister?
The Ghoul of Granton
One dark night, two pairs of young lovers were walking through the old graveyard in Granton, Massachusetts. According to the three who survived, they heard a noise of something stalking them. They turned to look and saw a horrible, humanoid monster. One of the boys became paralyzed. He could talk, but he could not move. The others ran away in panic. They could hear the boy’s screams as they ran. They are now convinced that it will get them. The local sheriff has invited your team of paranormal investigators to help with the case. Was the boy killed by normal means, or by something more terrifying?
Come and join the fun, if you can. I’ll be signing copies of The Unexplained for anyone who finds me, or plays in my games.
