This started as a request for a “Horror D&D” game. One of the players was already involved in a “Ravenloft” game, so we wanted something else that really dove into the gothic horror feel. After spending too much time trying to curate a list of appropriate classes, we found the “Worlds Without Number” rule set and “Silent Legions” (both from Kevin Crawford) which provided a flexible system to make all manner of characters that would suit the setting.
Inspirations include; Dracula, Penny Dreadful, Sleepy Hollow, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norell, Dark City.
