Setting: Red Wing, a city of many layers.

A picturesque city nestled in between the wooded bluffs and the mighty Mississippi rests unassuming between tourist seasons. The city of Red Wing boasts many festivals throughout the year, each an enticement designed to attract outsiders and support its tourist industry.

Historical homes and mysterious sites lure in another kind of visitor – the paranormal hunters. From the famously haunted St. James Hotel downtown to the ancient Stone Cairns scattered throughout the valley and many dark lakes, the area is full of the supernatural and unearthly.

Story Telling Style: Open sandbox with many possibilities

The game is a horror campaign inspired by Ghost Hunters, Ghost Hunters International, Supernatural, Call of Cthulhu, Ravenloft and various ghost stories. It is set in a real city that I have a lot of historical, geographical and personal knowledge about. This allows me to run a very open, free choice style of game.

If you’re interested in joining this game the campaign launch is listed on the RTR Meetup site.
