A Fear Within + PDF

Do you have what it takes to fight A Fear Within?

A Fear Within is a roleplaying game where players take on the roles of both children and the monsters that live inside them.

What is A Fear Within?

These are not metaphorical monsters or fears. These are literal, powerful creatures that live inside the children and want to be unleashed upon the world. They are called Entities.

In A Fear Within The Children and Entities are forced to work together to face The Fear, a dark power that threatens the world of human and monster alike.

Players work in pairs, and although they come from different worlds their relationship is essential to achieving their goals and saving all of existence.

Essentially it is the same as above. We adore all of you and strive to give you the best possible customer experience possible but inventory tracking not only for us but for our vendors and partners makes this almost impossible to do now. 


Pre-order dates are subject to change. We get as frustrated as you do when things come up but this happens from time to time. Sometimes circumstances beyond our control will create delays. We try to communicate via social media and our weekly newsletter to keep everyone as up to date as possible. 

All items in an order containing pre-orders will ship with the pre-order item once it is in stock. If you would like the other items earlier, please place a seperate order from the one containing the pre-order. 

We cannot combine pre-orders with existing orders nor combine new orders with existing pre-orders. 

Pre-orders will be exempt from any type of general sale.
