Load your flintlocks, light up the lantern and step into the crypt: this is LexOccultum! Awarded “Game of the Year” in Sweden, the roleplaying game about occultism, mysteries and secret societies in an 18th century setting is here! (Previously known as Götterdämmerung.)
“Monsieur, mademoiselle, do not deny yourselves. Come now, step into the warmth, or what little is left of it. Perhaps I should say, “welcome to the bone chilling cold darkness.”
“Oh, comme ça, do not be shy; you can lay down your barking-irons on the shelf over there. You will find no enemies in this room, even though we both know shadows lurk just outside. The flintlocks will be of no use anyway, a cross would serve you better” The old servant said with a grim smile on his face. “I have been told that you are a most curious soul, eager to know more about “the other side”. You will not be disappointed. Step into the chamber and have a glass of wine, the best in all France! Feel at home, maître will soon be here and then he shall tell you everything that he knows to be true. Have patience; for it is a long story about vampires, occult rituals, secret societies and not least, all the lies you have been told all these years…”
Some would say that truth is a thin veil, like makeup upon a scarred face, silk clothes upon a tormented body, pretty words on a sickly longing, or perfume upon rotten flesh. Truth is not more accurate or more deceptive than anything else. It just is.
