Eleusis, the island of Shadow and Madness; where wolves speak in the voices of men and the undead haunt the woods. It is a dangerous land, where magic infuses the very air, a path is never guaranteed to take you to the same destination twice, and the towns and villages need strong walls to protect them during the long nights. The length of the seasons, and even the length of the day is unpredictable there and it is said that the land’s corrupt nobility make deals with the Devils for long life and power. And it is the land where you find yourselves now, on the road to the capital city of Kore and about to arrive in the village of Elefsina.Recruitment:
I’m looking for 4(ish) players for a pbp Dungeon World dark fantasy/gothic/horror focused game. If you are not familiar with Dungeon World that is ok, the rules can be found at http://www.dungeonworldsrd.com/
. Any of the basic classes are acceptable; any classes from supplements have to be OKed on a case by case basis.Setting:
Eleusis is a harsh and unforgiving place. But it is also across the sea from the Empire of Gold and their Book of The Thousand Righteous Laws. It is a land where you can still seek your fortune, study magic without a license, worship the god of your choice, or evade an arrest warrant.
Eleusis is inspired by Ravenloft and the Shadowfell from D&D. Unlike them, it is a place in the physical world, an island about the size of Ireland north of the main continent in the setting. Like Ravenloft and the Shadowfell it is otherworldly, distance and time don’t always work like they should. It draws on the horror traditions, but is still a place of adventure where a hero can make a difference while trying to strike it rich. Just make sure to lock your doors at night and watch out for vampires!
