    |..


    Imagine a world of conspiracy and horror...


































    |..


    ...in which the facts are hidden behind a wall of lies,
    and powerful people aren't what they seem.


































    |..


    ...You are an agent. Your job is to cover up the truth.


































    |..


    ...Your job is to protect those lies.


































    |..


    You work for this man...




    ...and he is one of the GOOD guys.































    The Esoterrorists. Coming soon.

    Game Overview:
    You are elite investigators combating the plots of the Esoterrorists, a loose affiliation of occult terrorists intent on tearing the fabric of the world and letting the monsters in.

    Unlike other investigative roleplaying games, The Esoterrorists’ GUMSHOE rules system ensures that the plot never grinds to a halt due to a failed die roll. As top paranormal detectives, you never fail in your areas of expertise. When necessary, you can expend extra effort to glean more from the evidence than any plodding journeyman could hope to find.

    More about the game--PCs:

    Who Are You?
    You and your teammates are elite investigators drawn from various walks of life, all with a background in investigation. You may be a world-weary homicide detective, a lab-coated forensic scientist, a grizzled old-school reporter, a tweed-jacketed scholar, or even a hanger-on in the criminal underworld. You lead a double life. Most of the time, you’re an ordinary civilian, paying the rent and leading a normal existence. However, you belong to a cell of a secret, worldwide organization called the Ordo Veritatis (OV). This benevolent conspiracy, which operates with the tacit approval of the world’s major powers, fights the machinations of the Esoterrorists, who seek personal power by evoking malign paranormal phenomena.

    How Does the World Work?

    Magic doesn’t come into the world easily; it has a basic set point of sanity that’s hard to tamper with. That’s why ghosts and other occult manifestations are typically only encountered in certain haunted locations by highly sensitive individuals. But when people begin to doubt the sanity of their everyday world, these breaks in the fabric of reality become easier to create. Your enemies stage hauntings, create Fortean phenomena, and insert false evidence of nonexistent conspiracies into the historical record. These begin as hoaxes but, as they create mass hysteria, become real. As they peak, they spawn the so-called Creatures of Unremitting Horror, bizarre modernist monsters who must be destroyed before they become as much a part of consensus reality as lions or convenience stores.
