Fear of the Unknown is a zero prep horror mystery game where every game is a horror film!
Solve mysteries, face perils, encounter horrors, and see how that changes you as a person.
Together, one Oracle and one or more other players will collaboratively create the small town setting and populate it with a diverse and contentious cast of characters. Each player creates their protagonist, and then the Oracle creates a horrifying mystery for them to solve. Every game has a real mystery to solve with a real secret to uncover, with zero prep required!
Fear of the Unknown is Powered by the Apocalypse, which means inspired by the exceedingly great Apocalypse World by Vincent and Meguey Baker. It also introduces the Seeking the Unknown system, which focuses on leading questions that help you create a world, characters, and story with no preparation, and lasting changes to your character with every decision you make and every time you roll the dice.
