From publisher blurb:
Visions Dark & Dreadful is a role-playing game about Victorian ghost hunting. One player assumes the role of Game Master (GM) and is responsible for designing and telling a ghost story. The other players create and control characters to inhabitant the GM’s tale. While the Game Master devises the framework of the story, the players determine the ultimate direction of the plot through their characters’ actions. Role-playing is a conversation where everyone has a say in the direction of the narrative.
Visions Dark & Dreadful is a low-prep, quick pick-up game. Character creation is a simple two-step process, and actions are resolved with a single die roll. Every role-playing session is a stand-alone haunting for the characters to investigate. A session lasts as long as it takes to solve the mystery at the heart of the haunting and send the wayward spirit to its final rest.
Visions Dark & Dreadful is presented in a series of modular two-sided pamphlets, so you only buy what you want. The Game Master’s Guide and the Player’s Guide are required for play, though other add-ons are available.
