Description Edit | History

From publisher blurb:

In Boston, Massachusetts, an old ham radio, tuned to a dead channel, broadcasts messages from beyond the grave.

In a remote rainforest near the headwaters of the Amazon, a shaman makes contact with an alien reality.

In a library in Seven Dogs, Alaska, a mysterious codex holds the secrets of creation.

Over the last few centuries, mankind’s understanding of the universe has grown dramatically. From classical physics to quantum physics, the blurry picture of creation has come more into focus. However, there are still things in the world that remain mysterious and unexplained. Alien abductions, ghostly apparitions, Spontaneous Human Combustion and other unusual phenomena continue to exert a stranglehold on human curiosity. Most of these phenomena are hoaxes, products of overactive imaginations, or explainable by modern science. However, there are exceptions, things that contradict mankind’s understanding of how the universe works. But what if these things are not really unexplainable? What if humanity is only viewing these events from a limited and flawed perspective? Perhaps a simple, yet invisible, explanation underlies all such phenomena.

Aletheia is a role-playing game about the weirdness at reality’s fringe. Players investigate the anomalous phenomena and impossible occurrences that defy logic and commonsense. This includes conducting eyewitness interviews, on-site analysis and observation, and forming hypotheses – all in an attempt to gain a more complete picture of reality.
