Imp of the Perverse (Print+PDF)

Imp of the Perverse (Print+PDF)

from 34.00

A new game of psychological horror and monster-hunting in Jacksonian Gothic America.

Inspired by the work of Edgar Allan Poe, Imp of the Perverse centers on the struggle to overcome your own perversity by hunting down those who have fully given into theirs and turned into literal monsters.

Deeply embedded in this exciting, tumultuous time in American history, you determine what it is about you that sets you apart from humanity, and then grapple with the temptations offered you to approach the Shroud that divides the world of the quick from that of the dead. Can you overcome your own Imp of the Perverse?

More information about the game can be found here.

The Protagonist Cards are a deck of 12 double-sided Tarot-sized cards, containing examples of the twin elements at the core of a protagonist’s struggle: their perversity and their greatest strength. These cards can be used whole cloth to quickly generate protagonists for play as well as examples on which to model your own choices.
