Threat

A one-page "superlite" solo microRPG that replicates the kind of horror movie where an ensemble cast of skilled but flawed people are trapped in a dark place with a terrifying threat waiting to snatch them at any moment. There’s plenty of intrigue, dark secrets, and broken relationships to keep things interesting. It’s fast, cyclic, and incredibly lethal; your pool of actors essentially serves as hit points. So don’t get too attached!

  • AW-style tiered resolution, with an assembled modifier.
  • Playbooks, with fillable character sheets*.
  • Abstract Round structure, with the flexibility to direct like a movie.
  • Ensemble play; you control one of six actors at a time, jumping between them.
  • Quite a few tables.
Excerpt: 

You had to come.
Had to.
The others count on you, but you can’t trust them.
There’s something out there.
Something hungry.
Will you survive?
What will it cost?
