First, one of the worst blizzards in recent memory struck Vimary. Next, both the recent and not-so-recent dead rose on Hom. Finally, visions of strange, nightmarish places plagued the Guides and Doomsayers. Something from within the Discarded Lands is wreaking havoc in the River of Dream, and it’s up to you to find out what is going on and stop it.

Dead of Winter: Part 2 is a demo of the Tribe 8 setting using the Cortex Prime engine. No familiarity with either one is necessary, and you don’t need to have played in Part 1!

    Just wanted to leave this here, but I’ll be contacting you guys directly too. There’s a feedback form here that if Erik and and Tom can fill out would be appreciated!

    Otherwise, pretty good game. I know things were a little muddled (because I had made some changes) but hopefully you all enjoyed it.

    Hey people. We have a week to go before the con, and I just wanted to drop a link to the pregens. They are divided into a single PDF for Part 1 and Part 2. No need to print them or anything, just wanted to make them available for you to look over. If you have any questions feel free to ask.

    The content is pretty standard fantasy adventure fare (with a Tribe 8 twist), so not a lot from the general content warnings listed is being pushed hard or at all. If any of you have problems with depictions of medical facilities or mental institutions, or situations depicting past confinement (not confinement of the characters), let me know and I’ll pre-adjust accordingly. My plan is to use X Cards during the session, and of course there will be a chance to discuss anything you are comfortable with discussing the night of.

    If you aren’t familiar with Tribe 8, or just want a quick refresher, there is a short setting document in the folder as well.
