The universe unravels as the Hunger in the Void draws near to Urth, casting a terrible shadow from which untold horrors are spawned. Mortals know this destroyer by many names.

All rules will be taught at the table -- the system is simple and intuitive. Dice will be available, but if you do bring your own, you'll need only a 20-sided die and 4-5 d6's. Not recommended for players under the age of 16, please.
