tremulus Kickstarter Launched!

If you've been enjoying our tremulus sneak peeks lately, you'll be pleased to know that there kickstarter has just launched!

As an RPG that strongly evokes the literary tone of Lovecraft, I encourage anyone who is a fan of H.P.L., horror, or story-games like Fiasco to check the tremulus kickstarter out.

It's definitely the most excited I've been about a new Lovecraftian horror game in a long time.

Let's all make this great idea happen!

“Heh. Ha. Yes. It must be my imagination and all, trick of the light. Yes, I’m quite sure that’s what it is,” said Samuel to himself.

He left the book where it was, crumpled on the embroidered rug like an overindulged party guest, as its pages began to fold. Samuel slid the library doors apart, and called for Horatio.
