Announcing Darkness of the Demimonde!

What is Darkness of the Demimonde?

Coming to Kickstarter for Zinequest '23, Darkness of the Demimonde is a rules light RPG about vampires and psychics, occultists and investigators, and all things supernatural, set in the Victorian Age. Did you like Penny Dreadful, Hammer Horror, The Alienist, and Sherlock Holmes? That's what we're trying to bring to your table!

Based in Tunnel Goons (by Nate Treme) and The Midnight Chimes (by Scott Malthouse), Darkness of the Demimonde uses a simple 2d6 system with the majority of the rules on three pages. The game will let you play normal human PCs as well as a variety of supernatural characters, like vampires and werewolves.

Look for it in February!
