Silent Sound

Silent Sound is a surreal horror game about characters called to explore a mysterious abandoned town.  Exploration soon uncovers personified shades of the past that seem to taunt the players about past moral crimes.  As the terror intensifies the characters discover a common theme among their personal stories.  Will this bring them together or drive them apart?  Will they find absolution or be consumed by their guilt?

Silent Sound features a split GM role.  Two players, the Shadow and the Voice of Reason, represent the struggle between judgement and forgiveness.  The other players’ characters souls are trapped in this tug-of-war.
