Dark and Delicious

A fascinating world unfolds before you. Death abounds. Hope fades yet heroes set forth to fix that which was broken. Enter the imaginative world of Midnight Kingdoms a grimdark RPG with heart. Begin with the lore episodes and you’ll be hooked! I know I was!

Jairys_Tak ,

Excellent Quality, Intriguing Concept

I heard about this on Twitter and was immediately interested in the concept. The sound quality and ambience are top-notch and I'm looking forward to seeing where this goes. Spooning goblins, forest fire prevention, and that heavy fog have got me hooked.
