Shadows Over Olisipo


The shadows of Lisbon hide countless secrets in the winding alleyways, decaying mansions, and underground catacombs of this ancient city. It is a realm where the light of progress and reason wrestles with mysticism, intrigue, and the allure of the forbidden. This is a Portugal on the cusp of a new century, where old traditions and new ideas clash amidst the trappings of empire. In this gas-lit world, players will take on the roles of intrepid investigators exploring the occult underbelly of Portuguese society. Sinister conspiracies, unnatural creatures, deranged cults, and eldritch artefacts await discovery beneath the genteel façade.
