The Roleplaying Game of Personal Horror. Fear Itself 2nd Edition plunges ordinary people into a disturbing contemporary world of madness and violence —and inexorably draws them into confrontation with creatures of the Outer Dark, a realm of alien menace. GMs can re-create all the shudders and shocks of the horror genre at their table, whether they use the game’s distinctive mythology or one of their own choosing. Powered by the GUMSHOE investigative roleplaying system, this expanded edition of the classic Fear Itself supports multiple different types of play, from bloody one-shots to extended investigative campaigns, and includes extensive advice for GMs on designing and running mystery games. Its updated rules draw from more than ten years of GUMSHOE development and play experience, to deliver the ultimate in personal horror roleplaying. Fear Itself includes three sample scenarios, from a one-night adventure, through a mini-series, to a full campaign.
