Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG (DCC RPG)

I ran my first session of DCC (The Portal Under the Stars) last weekend, and it lit a fire in my mind.

If you find 5e stifling, DCC is your release. Get on it.

Fear Itself 2nd Edition

The perfect vehicle for tales of contemporary horror.

In this game you play as ordinary people, which to me is the key for a solid horror experience. It anchors the game in a baseline of reality, which makes the horror elements really stand out.

The game itself is simple and fast at the table, which is imperative for horror games - the system gets out of the way. Initially I was nonplussed about the "investigative spends" mechanic, however at the table it works just fine.

What I really like about this edition of the game is there is a TON of advice for designing and running "mysteries". For example, it has guidance on how to handle "red herrings" in a way that should satisfy a player, rather than frustrating them for shutting down the red herring.

Given the shift to virtual gaming these days, it's worth noting that Foundry VTT has a nice module for gumshoe games (https://foundryvtt.com/packages/investigator), which includes a Fear Itself setting.
