There will be blood... EPOCH is a game of survival horror¸ and much like a movie¸ not all of the characters can expect to survive until the final scene. Unlike many other games¸ EPOCH players have complete control over the fate of the characters. They may know the rules of the horror genre¸ but who becomes a victim¸ and how¸ is different every time.
There will be drama... EPOCH rewards interesting character play with increased chances of character survival. Players are not just the protagonists¸ but also act as the audience who hold the fate of all the characters in their hands. Using a simple¸ flexible¸ character creation method¸ players shape their back story to reveal interesting facts and surprising twists.
There will be a reckoning... EPOCH assumes a high level of character competence. Skills and abilities are streamlined¸ placing the focus back on the characters' story and the personal impact of the horror. But victory is never assured; evil may prevail¸ and the true cost of the horror is never fully revealed until the final credits roll.
