LiminalHorror is a classless, rules lite system that eschews leveling for high lethality and narrative growth. Players act as investigators navigating a modern world full of terrible and unknowable things that hide in the spaces between, looking for a way in.
Developed as a modern cosmic horror hack of Yochai Gal’s Cairn (inspired by Into the Odd & Knave), it adds a Stress & Stress Fallout system that warps characters the closer they get to the abyss.
LiminalHorror is a rules-lite, fail forward system that leverages creative problem solving in order to create memorable experiences at the table. Its open framework allows facilitators to use other mysteries/horror adventures at the table.
This Exalted Funeral edition contains additional content such as: a mystery framework to plan sessions, an example mystery (Plague of Frogs) and spark tables.
