Restore a crumbling occult library by a winter sea. Build the world’s foremost collection of grimoires and arcana. Master the invisible arts. BOOK OF HOURS is a narrative crafting RPG set in a 1930s world of hidden gods and secret histories. What sort of Librarian will you choose to be?
BOOK OF HOURS is an elegant, melancholy, combat-free RPG set in an occult library, from the creator of Fallen London, Sunless Sea and the double BAFTA-nominated Cultist Simulator.
In this 20 - 40 hour game, you'll:
◆ ACQUIRE, RESTORE and CATALOGUE occult books, scrolls and curiosities.
◆ STUDY the nine Wisdoms, and conquer the nine Elements of the Soul.
◆ GUIDE visitors who come seeking your assistance, choosing their paths and stories.
◆ EXPLORE the Secret Histories and the pantheon of Hours that rules them.
◆ RESTORE a vast crumbling edifice built on the foundations of an ancient abbey.
◆ WREST your past from obscurity. Choose from nine different Legacies which determine who you are. You might be a Magnate, abandoning wealth to seek peace. Or an Archaeologist, fleeing the curse you awoke. Or perhaps your origins are more esoteric, like the Symurgist, or Twiceborn? Each playthrough offers different opportunities.
