Shadows at the Rectory: The new starter kit featuring the Wrenegade System

Step into a world where the line between reality and the supernatural blurs, where mysteries lurk in the shadows, and where your imagination takes on an eerie life of its own. Wrenegade Studios is proud to introduce Shadows at the Rectory, the spine-tingling paranormal investigation starter kit. Get ready to embark on a collaborative storytelling adventure like never before, with a twist of horror that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

At the heart of the Beyond the Veil tabletop roleplaying game lies the innovative Wrenegade System. Embody a range of characters with their own particular specialities to come together as a group of intrepid investigators of the unknown.

But what truly sets the Wrenegade System apart is its emphasis on collaborative storytelling. In this game, you and your fellow players aren’t just participants; you’re co-authors of a chilling tale. Together, you’ll lead a group of investigators as they are drawn into the enigmatic world of the paranormal. Whether it’s unravelling the mysteries of haunted houses, deciphering cryptic messages from spirits, or confronting otherworldly entities, every decision you make as a group will shape the narrative.

As Game Master you have the responsibility of immersing your players in the story, create an atmosphere that is thick with tension as they rely on their investigative skills and the roll of the dice to determine their fate. Based on the group’s actions, or the ever-increasing threat of a full-blown interaction, add twists by describing an unsettling sound echoing through the hallway, a sudden chill in the air, or the flickering of lights. The group’s task is to unearth the mystery that forms the origin of the events at Borley Rectory, and, if possible, put an end to the strange occurrences that happen there.

As the plot thickens, they’ll face challenges that test not only their characters’ resolve but also their creativity. There’ll be no shortage of surprises as the element of horror weaves itself into every aspect of the game, from unexpected manifestations to heart-pounding encounters. The Starter Kit includes a full module that introduces you to the world, helping you set the stage for a spine-chilling adventure.
