Whispers in the Dark is a tabletop roleplaying game of investigative horror built around the 5e rules (made famous by Dungeons and Dragons) designed by Matt Corley and M.T. Black. Whispers uses a streamlined form of the 5e ruleset with some tweaks, optional rules , a classless character creation process, comprehensive sanity/madness rules, and is set in world adjacent to our own.
Horror in the Windy City: A Whispers in the Dark Campaign is set in late 1800s Chicago and the tie-in novella The Devil’s City, written by Sara Tantlinger and Matt Corley and illustrated by Daniele Serra follows H.H. Holmes as he stalks and hunts victims at the 1893 World’s Fair.
