You grew up in Hometown but moved out when you entered adulthood. A decade later you’re in your thirties and the return to Hometown brings back memories. Forgotten events are remembered and you begin to unravel the town’s sinister secrets.
Okult is a rules light GM-less horror storygame, best suited for three to four players. The players take the roles of people who are a little bit like themselves, returning to a town a little like the place where they themselves grew up. Beneath the surface the town hides a dark secret, and as the players start investigating they find that the the events in the present are ripples of something that happened in the past. The forgotten events of the past are played in flashbacks as the players come to remember them.
