TRF’s Twelve Days of Christmas: Day 9, Fear Itself

On the Ninth Day of Christmas
My GM gave to me,
Nine scary monsters,
Eight prior worlds,
Seven heroes slashing,
Six Fiascos foiled,
Five TPKS!
Four ships still flying,
Three Green Boxes,
Two Draculas,
and a Final Girl fleeing to safety.

An eye peeks through a hole in a door and is full of fear

While not the first Gumshoe game we tried, Fear Itself may very well be the scariest. We’re not hardened wet work artists or seasoned investigators of the unnatural for this outing: we’re regular people with ordinary lives. So basically, we’re screwed.

When you throw in the Book of Unremitting horror, and Megan’s love of tormenting Aser in one-on-one games, Fear Itself has quickly become a TRF favorite.
