You have unfinished business. Trapped in a loop-the same night, every night-until you can solve the problem at hand. Maybe its preventing an unexpected death, or maybe its finding the culprit who has wronged you, or maybe its something else entirely. This surely cant be your afterlife, being trapped in a Sisyphean nightmare. Crawl out from under the depths of the underground train system and get to work. You will need to unravel this mystery to get to the afterlife you want.

In Revenants: The Endless Loop Beneath the City, players take on the roles of Revenants: skeletal remains or undead bodies with souls that have returned from the dead to right past wrongs. They lurk among the living and travel between underground train stations in the city, attempting to solve the mystery behind what is keeping them from moving on. They go through the same night until they can finally find the Culprit behind their deaths and the Event that is keeping them here on the earthly plane.

In this one-shot scenario, Revenants are in Paris in 1911, when secret societies, occultists and the wealthy who have a penchant for the esoteric are spreading throughout the city. La Belle Époque is a ripe time for these groups, as relative peace has made it easier for the rich to spend their time doing strange rituals in secrecy.
