Liminal Horror is a rules-light, OSR-adjacent game from Goblin Archives that both strips cosmic horror down to its bare essentials, and attempts to separate it from the unpleasant baggage inherent in the genre’s Lovecraftian roots.
Liminal Horror is a rules-lite, fail forward system that leverages creative problem solving in order to create memorable experiences at the table. Players act as investigators navigating a modern world full of terrible and unknowable things that hide in the spaces between, looking for a way in.
For fans of Junji Ito, cosmic horror, Call of Cthulhu, Monster of the Week, Silent Legions but wanting rules-lite adaptable system.
Inspired by games like Cairn, Into the Odd, Knave, and Maze Rats, Liminal Horror provides a minimal but robust framework for running games about investigators up against arcane forces far beyond their control.
