The boxed limited edition launches on Thursday 21st October 2021, and the unlimited digital edition launches on Thursday 18th November 2021.
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?
The Lady Afterwards is a limited edition Cultist Simulator TRPG. We’ve streamlined the experience so you don’t have to be a role-playing aficionado to play, and we’ve filled it with Dread, Fascination and the invisible arts.
Track down Audrey Leigh Howard, a woman of high standing and dubious morals. Seek the Serapeum. Investigate the Society of the Noble Endeavour. Abort a plan. Avert a crisis. Protect the heart of the House Without Walls – or let the blow fall.
The boxed physical edition, containing everything you need for several evenings’ occult entertainment with friends (and/or cultists). Each edition includes:
- The Secret Histories Rule Book, a TRPG system designed for the world of Cultist Simulator
- The Lady Afterwards Game Runner’s Guide, a Secret Histories scenario set in 1920s Alexandria
- An exultation* of clues, curiosities, clippings and collectibles
- The Essential Hours, a 23-card pocket tarot
- Eight customisable character sheets
- Eight art deco character pins in silver and gold
- A scented Serapeum candle, to evoke that which cannot be seen
- A full-colour map of contemporary Alexandria
- Two sets of antique TRPG dice in a velvet dice bag: one for you, and one for the Hours
- A Steam key for Cultist Simulator, in the unspeakable instance where someone hasn’t played it yet
- A year of 10% off everything in the Church o’ Merch
- Access to a custom-built mood-music playlist, to SET THE TONE!
It all comes in a custom-built 1920s-styled recyclable box mailed directly to players. It’ll release on Thursday 21st October 2021 in our Etsy shop and cost £150.
If you’re not quick enough to get one of the 100 limited edition boxes, The Lady Afterwards also comes as a digital-only version, containing all you need to play the game but nothing you need physically shipped to you. The digital edition releases on Thursday 18th November 2021 and costs £30. It’ll be available on Etsy, DriveThruRPG, OpenGamingStore, Indie Press Revolution and Amazon.
