An accursed godspawn, as its name denotes, is a descendant of the accursed, fallen God. It is a nocturnal, undying creature with the semblance of a man, and one that preys on the lives of others to sustain its own.
The accursed are members of the “Society of Horrors”, a clandestine, bleak world that is concealed by a supernatural and omnipresent structure known as “The Veil”.
This order is no longer a member of the godspawn society, having been banished and nearly exterminated for their disregard of the accursed law that prohibits the practice of necromancy.
Agenda: The Faustahd, after 400 years, have resurfaced with a small army of necromantic abominations and are looking to extract revenge from their closed minded and insolent kin.
Main Bloodline-Damian: Accursed of this bloodline are no longer created out of the living but are put together using necromancy. Their diadem, Necrosis, empowers them to raise the dead as well as make puppets out of the godspawns' unliving bodies.
Welcome to Orbis Aerden: Reign of the Accursed, a horror tabletop roleplaying game set in a fictional Victorian era setting. In this game, you assume the role of an accursed godspawn, a being of dual nature that embodies qualities of both a monster and a man. As an accursed, you will be thrown into a dark and unforgiving underworld, surrounded by monsters far more dreadful than yourself, and you will either kill or be killed.
Reign of the Accursed explores various themes, underscored by its setting and fully supported by its comprehensive, crunchy rule-set. A chronicle may be focused on a central motif, or it may incorporate two or more of the following themes:
Political Intrigue: Scheme, manipulate, and murder, risk it all to climb to the top of the hierarchy in the dark society you inhabit. Become the baron and rule over a domain, climb even higher and take the title of a count of tenebrae, ruling over multiple baronies. Will you dare to take a chance at the throne of the archduke? You are only limited by the magnitude of your ambition, but remember, the higher you rise, the harder you fall.
Cold War: Pick your side and partake in the secret war of the accursed that has been raging on for more than a thousand years. As an instrument of your order, you will have significant resources at your disposal, but you will also be brought into the spotlight, making every new night potentially your last. Will you bring your order one step closer to becoming the victor of the war of ages, or will you succumb to the machinations and twisted mind-games of your monstrous adversaries?
Cosmic/Occult Horror: Look at the big picture, however ill-advised it may be, and set out to investigate the strange occurrences connected to the Sempiternal Archae, horrific cosmic entities beyond any comprehension, and those the accursed call "the perverse ones". You may try your best to hamper their advances towards your world, but only a few survive even the remotest involvement with these enigmatic beings. Lunacy, terror, and despair await you. Will you overcome it?
Character Drama: You carry inside you the blood of a fallen god, it has changed you, you are no longer human. You now seek your place among the world. Will you struggle against your monstrous nature, or will you embrace it and let it change you? Your preservation depends upon hurting the helpless. Will you indulge your needs and grow your power, or will you stand against your own kind and protect the innocent?
Survival: From the most powerful accursed to the lowliest mortal, no-one can be safe in a world permeated with ever-present threats. You are a monster, yes, but you are not the only one. In this nightmarish reality you live in, the society of horrors, only the strong survive and you best hide your weaknesses, or you will be hunted as prey.
