There are things that dwell beneath the earth and some are best left buried.

The Dread, the underbelly of an already terror filled and darkly macabre surface world. There is no glory to be found in this place, only death, ruination, and treasures the likes of which few minds can conceive. The last memories of broken civilizations remain, the black age of death was thought to have consumed them all but how wrong we were. Twisted echoes of the ancient peoples that came before, gangling and half-dead. Their sanity shattered and their hopes and dreams lost to the relentless marching of time. Feral barbarism, raving priests of unholy gods, eldritch terrors and horrible monstrosities long thought lost to time are all that remain down here.

Hungry, dark gods seek to awaken into the last vestiges of a light-filled world to snuff it out once and for all. Their echoing laughter driving the last of the survivors of this dismal nightmare to madness.

What is Torches in the Dark?

Torches in the Dark - 1.5th Edition Living World Campaign
- This is a heavily modified version of the 5th/1st edition of the world's most popular role-playing game.
- Race are similar to what you would expect to find in the more modern version of most roleplaying games, but they are not freely chosen. You only have a % chance to become a race other than human.
- The classes have been completely rebuilt for simplicity and with online play in mind.
- Our version of the game takes heavy inspiration from many of the new OSR games now available on the market. Traps are deadly, classes have distinct weaknesses, there's a heavy focus on teamwork and less on min-maxing or creating 'builds' for characters.

Are there any house rules I should be aware of?
Yes! You can read all about our house rules once you're in the game. You can also visit our website to take a look at our unique magic rules and other game features.

Is this a paid game?
Yes and no. This game is à la carte through and through.

What does that mean?
That means that all of the games are completely free to play in. If you enjoy yourself and you'd like to tip me and earn a few benefits the next time you choose to play in a session that's cool. It's never required and never expected. You are more than welcome to play in as many games as you want without ever having to put down a single cent. Those who choose to do, all I can say is thank you and that I appreciate it!
