Liminal Horror

Liminal Horror is a classless, rules lite system the eschews leveling for high lethality and narrative growth. Players act as investigators navigating a modern world full of terrible and unknowable things that hide in the spaces between, looking for a way in.

Developed as a modern cosmic horror hack of Yochai Gal’s Cairn (inspired by Into the OddKnave), it adds a Stress & Stress Fallout system that warps characters the closer they get to the abyss.

Liminal Horror is a rules-lite, fail forward system that leverages creative problem solving in order to create memorable experiences at the table. Its open framework allows facilitators to use other mysteries/horror adventures at the table.

For fans of Junji Ito, cosmic horror, Call of Cthulu, Monster of the Week, Silent Legions but wanting rules-lite NSR/OSR philosophy. Text and Layout by Goblin Archives.
