Diary in the Dark: The Wailing Lady Story Pack
PRECOCIOUS KIDS ON BIKES
Want to a low threat, high scares story with the potential to expand into a larger campaign? ‘The Wailing Lady’ give you tools for a paranormal story inspired by your favourite Kids on Bikes style antics.
Cravenswood is not a normal town. It has all the usual trappings of one, quaint local shops, a town fair every year, with townsfolk possesed with pride of being different from the big city folk. Most people would call these kinds of towns quiet or a place where nothing happens. That’s not the case here. Things happen, strange things, but nobody wants to talk about them. Questions are met with ‘hush now, you’ll scare the out-of-towners’ or disapproving scowls at the fact that this small slice of Americana isn’t as it first appears. That’s why I’m writing this now my own investigation, a regular report on the weird things happening here. My Diary of the Dark.
This story pack contains background and setting for the tale of 'The Wailing Lady' which can be played with a number of different character groups. The pack contains full background and additional ideas for running the story as well as specific rules for use with the SHIVER RPG.
WHAT IS SHIVER?
SHIVER is a tabletop roleplaying game that you bring your favourite scary movies, spooky tv shows, and horror stories to life. Ever wanted to play through the plot of your favourite film on the tabletop? Or wanted to make sequels, prequels and original stories in the worlds of pop culture you love? SHIVER lets you play that!
SHIVER is setting neutral so you can play any story, anytime, and as anyone. Want to play a game of teens in survival mode against a zombie horde? Kids on Bikes who dread exploring a haunted house on Halloween night? Or perhaps a medieval monster hunter looking for a werewolf, vampire or mage? SHIVER can help you deliver stories and characters for anything from cult pulp classics to Cthulhu fuelled eldritch mysteries.
SHIVER is easy to learn, fast to play and immerses you in chaotic and dark magic filled stories. SHIVER’s symbolic dice keep you immersed in the story as well as cutting out pesky arithmetic for visual aids. Character creation is quick and easy with a simple skill point and ability system that get you into the story and game fast.
SHIVER is perfect for creating your one shots or short stories between main campaigns. You can also create epic long stories by tying your one-shot stories together using rules for sequels.
SHIVER is inspired by many great bits of pop culture which we really wanted to play on the table including:
Stranger Things, Dracula, Jurassic Park, Aliens, Evil Dead, Friday 13th, Hellboy, League of Extrordinary Gentlemen, Gothic stories, Hellraiser, Indiana Jones, IT, Stephen King and his works, Fallout, HP Lovecraft, The Thing, and many more...
