He Who Fights Monsters
“He who fights monsters should see to it that he himself does not become a monster. And if you gaze for long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you.”
- Friedrich Nietzsche, Beyond Good and Evil
He Who Fights Monsters … is a Hunter: the Vigil chronicle about ordinary folks who band together to take on the things that go bump in the night. The game will be set in a fictional town in southern Illinois called Jonesboro, a small town growing up, for better or for worse.
The players will assume the roles of hunters, those who carry the Vigil and stand against the monsters that prey on an ever ignorant humanity. This is no trivial task of course, and to carry the Vigil is to risk your health, your heart, and your sanity.
