When the universe began, it didn't just create the universe we know. It created others that will sometimes leech into ours in unexpected ways. Most people never see these sort of crossovers, but you did. You're a Touched. You've seen what is out there. You know what sort of horrors lie beyond. Now, with other survivors, you must relive those encounters, hoping to survive once more. That's the story behind The Midnight World, a new horror RPG that's up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
Ever since, you have lived with the terrible memory of it burning in your mind. You may have dedicated your life to learning more about what you saw, or perhaps you've focused on science in an attempt to explain it away. No matter how you've lived in the wake of that moment, one truth has proven inescapable.
Monsters are real. You've met them.
In The Midnight World, you are one of the Touched, people who have all had encounters with the nightmares beyond the veil of reality. Together with a handful of other survivors, you will find yourself submerged once more in the terror of that moment long ago. Your decisions will guide whether or not you survive again, and whether the machinations of the demonic Dread Beings can be stymied for a while longer.
The campaign's up and running now. It's set to go for another 29 days.
