SFoL 38 - Game Over - Even death may die


#1

Welcome to SFoL 38 - Abyss

Hosted by Marluxion!

Abyss?

The main addition to this Special Forum of Lies is a new scum faction. The Abyss.

These twisted mind flayers have risen from the shadowy depths and seek to claim Adiart for their own vile purposes. Our scouts have displayed an abnormal fear upon witnessing such creatures…

Bending the minds of mortal men and slaying our kind without remorse… Some even whisper that they are trying to awaken some kind of Dark God that sleeps beneath the tides…

Their leader was dubbed ‘The Dreamer’ by one particularly… eccentric… scout. We have reports that he can steal the faces of the men he tortures… So… for all we know, any one of us could be one of these twisted creatures.

  • The Mercenary isn’t around. Some think she chickened out, others say she got a job that fill-ders her purse with Brilders. Regardless, the Mercenary cannot roll in this game.

  • Royal Blood isn’t on any of the Abyss class cards. Why? Because Royal Blood will now pass on directly if you had it before you were converted!

  • The Faction cap for the Abyss is 3

  • You aren’t notified if you are afraid. Only certain special investigative abilities can find that out.
