The Dare

Just backed another Kickstarter.
Draft of cover by Ian MacLean
"Children will always be afraid of the dark." - H.P. Lovecraft
Do you remember what it was like to be a kid?  When in every shadow there might lurk a monster?  When a nightmare might be escaped from by diving under your blankets?  When the morning light brought escape from all your fears... for a little while?
In The Dare, players take the role of a group of average kids who are forced by their neighborhood bully to spend the night in the dreadful (and haunted!) Barnaker house.  This being Call of Cthulhu, there are actually things in the house far more dangerous than even the most terrified child might imagine.  The kids must then work together to explore the nightmarish old Barnaker house and investigate its mysteries if they hope to survive until the morning.
This has a few things going for it that made it a no brainer. A one shot adventure, written by Kevin Ross, based in the 1980s (so getting in on that retro Stranger Things vibe). It's a 10 day Kickstarter, with the pdf being released as soon as the kickstarter ends, thereby meaning it'll be available to play for Halloween (with the physical book being slated for POD in November). Finally, it's just $15. That's like what, 3 coffees? What are you waiting for. Don't think, just click!
