A digital, printable TRPG for 2-8 players set in 1920s Alexandria. Uncover a world of mystery and occultism with the help of a few friends! This tabletop game is set in the world of the Secret Histories, where hidden gods watch over a world of apocalypse, yearning and forbidden arts. It's designed for people who've never played TRPGs / tabletop games before, as well as experienced players.

Track down Audrey Leigh Howard, a woman of high standing and dubious morals. Investigate a suspicious gentlemen's club. Abort a plan. Avert a crisis. Or - depending on your choices - let the blow fall.

Each digital edition includes:

★ The Lady Afterwards Game Runner's Guide, a ~50 page TRPG scenario set in 1920s Alexandria
★ The Secret Histories Rulebook, a ~30 page primer explaining the mechanics and perils of the game
★ 18 clues including telegrams, lovers' notes, photographs and more
★ Eight customisable character sheets with personalised questionnaires and connections
★ A Game Runner's Journal, to keep track of players, game-states and evidence uncovered
★ A full-colour A3 map of contemporary Alexandria, with real 1920s photographs
★ Access to a custom-built mood-music playlist of 1920s songs

I have not yet completed the campaign, just read and prepped. Pros: All the wonderful writing and flavor we've come to expect in Secret Histories material. Beautifully designed handbooks, character sheets, clues, etc. Seems very homebrew-friendly so far Cons: Included campaign is built for 3 sessions only. Digital content is not editable or searchable unless you have your own pdf software and can convert it. No blank character sheet. Very short handbook (30 - 40 pages) that is skimpy on lore. No mechanics for summonings, dreaming of the Mansus, Long, ascending, lost languages, and so on... mechanics are limited to casual dabbling. You NEED a tarot deck, preferably Weather Factory's own, and this is not advertised. Overpriced for what you get. Hopefully WF soon comes out with additional mechanics at the least.

I have managed to get this nice tabletop game in digital form, and I must admit it's amazing! I'm wondering if there's going to be an expansion on this someday... Like a detailed guide to the Mansus, and information on other Long of other aspects, not to mention information on various Names. I'll certainly look forward to something like that!

Reminds me of the chaosium call of Cthulhu system but more creative, easy to get into and more rules free.
