Half the alchemical charlatans in the world promise gold, and the other half promise immortality. A dissenting fraction went into the forest to combine both in their own disturbingly transcendental way.
Their creation? Mellified man. Human bodies steeped in honey for a hundred years that become a panacea, or so they say. It’s worth far more than its weight in gold and rarer than a cat’s footfall. Steal just one fragment and you could be set for life and longer.
Be careful, mind. The forest sings a sweet song of promises, true and false alike. The bones of those who came before you may be closer than you think.

The Paperflesh Advent is an incursion for Trophy Dark, the rules-light game of dark fantasy and psychological horror, but it can be used as a scenario for other games as well. This incursion will take you into the forest, through the fabled flower meadow called the Bleeding Kaleidoscope, and under the earth... on to whatever sings so beautifully beyond the dark and deep.

THEME: PROMISES

The incursion guides you through the sinister Terrors and honeyed Temptations of all five Rings—into the forest, through the meadow, and under the earth—as well as giving you:

  • 6 new Occupations, Backgrounds, Drives, and Rituals
  • 18 horrifying and exalting Conditions
  • 6 unsettling and bizarre Moments per Ring
  • and a new d66 table: the names of Three Dozen Flowers.

Here's what others have to say about it:

I recently read The Paperflesh Advent, a Trophy Dark incursion by @SpeaktheSky, for a... thing I'm working on. It's REALLY good, ya'll.

Jason Cordova, publisher of the Trophy RPG

The Paperflesh Advent is one of my favorite incursions, full of horror, treachery, delicious imagery and a burning sugar apotheosis that's not to be missed.

Michael Van Vleet, writer of the Trophy Dark incursions A Warm and Pleasant Hum and DEVIL, AIM FOR ME

Trophy Dark incursions start with the knowledge that your treasure hunters are doomed. How much heavier, then, is the weight of a journey that starts with promises made to others, knowing that as you journey through kaleidoscopic glades, bee-infested woods, and dank catacombs that your doom will claim not only your life, but the hopes you carried with you from someone who foolishly believed you capable of great things.

The Paperflesh Advent is one of my favorite incursions, full of horror, treachery, delicious imagery and a burning sugar apotheosis that's not to be missed.
