WHAT HAPPENED is a missing persons horror TTRPG about spiritual danger, cosmic encroachment, and inevitability. Players will find themselves pitted against an unknown spiritual terror while they try to solve the mystery of people going missing in their community. Game managers are encouraged to create a unique antagonistic horror while players are encouraged to band together and thrive under the watchful eyes of the Stars. 

WHAT HAPPENED runs on a diceless system based upon Belonging outside Belonging. However, thorough understanding of BoB's system is not necessary to play.

The downloadable contents have 20 pages of text, including

  • rules
  • small illustrations
  • guidelines for setting creation
  • character creation and 5 unique playbooks
  • directions for the the Storyteller (game manager)
  •  an illustration-free PDF designed specifically for screen readers and accessibility purposes.

For many Indigenous people worldwide, sometimes we find ourselves asking WHAT HAPPENED? We've lost so many but they aren't truly gone. This game explores my reflections on that.

Play well.

If you are Indigenous and the price is prohibitive, please DM me on Twitter (@bignoseagenda) and I will set you up, no questions asked.
