Everyone Dies or Goes Insane: Survival and Consequences in Horror Gaming (NecronomiCon 2022)

by | Sep 21, 2022 | Convention Panel

Horror RPGs such as Call of Cthulhu are characterized as “everyone dies or goes insane” in every game, but in reality, all games should not require tearing up character sheets. This panel explores the options and reasons for character survival. How does the Keeper employ game mechanics and meaningful consequences that are true to theme while encouraging creative problem-solving and decision-making from players?

Panelists: Lynne Hardy, Kenneth Hite, Mike Mason (M), Cameron Mosbarger, Oscar Rios
