CONTENT WARNING: references to captivity, starvation, violence, death, potential or implied harm to children/animals, murder/murderers, supernatural and human monsters, general horror. mechanics call for players to be blindfolded.
a Narrator leads their Players through a world they bring into being as they go. the Narrator's dice rolls and imagination drive the setting; the Players make choices in response to what they know.
the Players are blindfolded. all they know is what the Narrator says they can feel, smell, hear and taste.
some elements of this game differ from a traditional dungeon crawl, possibly requiring safety precautions outside of the usual. discuss needs and limits before the game, strike out any elements any player is uncomfortable with, and establish a clear system for pausing play at any time for any reason on anyone's say. choose as a Narrator someone who is trusted. Narrators should periodically break character to check in on their players' state of mind. in open games, indicate clearly to prospective players what type of content and situations the game will entail. use a safe word decided prior to play which will immediately stop the game at any time.
