That summer, our small town deep in rural Pennsylvania was abuzz with strange tales of the supernatural creature.  No two stories of the creature entirely agreed with each other. Everyone who encountered the creature seemed to see what they needed to see. 

Some who found the creature were terrified. Others were spurred out of their stifling, mundane lives. In the end, the creature left the town with more questions than answers. But the lives of the each witness would each be changed forever.

Once the stories started, they came in more and more frequently throughout the year. Then just as they reached a crescendo, the encounters suddenly stopped.

The Mystery Creature of Claytonsville, PA is a roleplaying game by Nick Wedig for 1-7 players. It’s a story about a town gripped by an unexplained, ambiguous phenomenon. As the story spreads, it brings out the unconscious fears and desires hidden beneath the town’s quiet exterior. 

You can play the game as a self contained story of a single protagonist in 4-6 hours. Or you can play the game as an anthology of intertwined stories, in an ongoing series of indefinite length, played across multiple sessions of play. 

You’ll need a deck of 52 regular playing cards to play, with jokers.

So glad you’re publishing new games!

Here is an Archipelago hack that flows like a river of satin in a brillantly weird town! I want to play the town.

Strength to you.
