In the quaint and quiet town of Haven's Reach, neighbors smile at each other, doors are left unlocked, and children play in the streets. 

There is something sinister taking root beneath the idyllic community. For those wary enough to notice, strange things have been happening; pets have started to go missing, shadows seem to move on their own, and the whole town seems to be under a daze. 

Neighbors shouldn't smile at each other, doors shouldn't be left unlocked, and children shouldn't play in the streets. The kids are not alright. 

THEY FEED ON FEAR: A Horror RPG is a stand-alone RPG system that allows the players to create and take control of Fear-Eaters, horrific inter-dimensional beings that sustain themselves by devouring the Fear/Essence of their victims. Players name their Fear-Eater and create their appearance, behaviour, background, and mythology. The players must then stalk their way through the world outlined by the game master, called the Provider. The Fear-Eater's goal is to sow discord, fear, and horror while avoiding the feeble attempts to end their rampaging, unquenchable feast.

This is a semi-cooperative narrative-driven role-playing game in which all but one of the players takes on the role of Fear-Eaters. The Fear-Eater's goal is to be the first to accumulate enough Essence to hibernate, mutate, or ascend, depending on the Fear-Eater's constructed mythology.

The final player assumes the role of the game master, known as the Provider, and is in charge of describing the town's inhabitants and the surrounding environment.

Mechanically, Fear-Eaters are described by two pairs of Attributes, a pool of Essence, and a list of Abilities. During the game, players may specialize their Fear-Eaters by adding and upgrading Abilities and modifying Attributes as their legend unfolds.

Players will need a writing utensil, a character sheet, a D12, a pad of paper (or similar), their twisted imaginations, and this rulebook, of course.
