The Lady Afterwards

The Lady Afterwards is a Cultist Simulator TRPG for 2-8 players, set in 1920s Alexandria. It takes place in the world of the Secret Histories, where hidden gods watch over a world of apocalypse, yearning and forbidden arts.

It’s a non-linear, combat-light, story-centric tabletop RPG: an occult Egyptian noir inspired by classics like Chaosium’s Horror on the Orient Express.

The luxury boxed version sold out in 60 seconds, but it’s available now as a digital download on Etsy, direct through WF.biz, Amazon, DriveThruRPG, the Open Gaming Store and in a 15% off bundle on Steam.

You’ve been summoned to Alexandria, a city of coloured lights and curious histories. An old friend needs you to track down a woman. She’s probably in trouble. Probably trouble herself. Plus ça change.

Mirrors glitter at the Cecil, Berbers whisper in the El Bab Cafe, and statues keep their secrets in the cold depths of the bay. Something’s in motion, from the Arab Quarter to the Rue des Soeurs. Somewhere, the Serapeum stirs. The Hours have taken an interest.

Cherchez la femme, the saying goes. But what does the lady look for?
