EXUVIAE produces horror-noir one-shot roleplaying adventures using a single pack of playing cards and no preparation.
EXUVIAE is designed to produce an investigative roleplaying experience without needing elaborate planning. If you've ever wanted to run an investigative game but haven't had time to dedicate to preparing a mystery, this is the game for you. What's more, because the structures of the game provide specific narrative prompts from the players, it better enables characters to make deductive leaps and the horror feels closer to home.
