What is Unknown Armies?

Unknown Armies is a horror game set in an alternate version of our world where magick is real. The world is caught in a power struggle between members of the Invisible Clergy — a group of beings so dedicated to certain attributes that they become archetypes of them.

In this RPG, the gamemaster weaves mysteries based on player ideas. Players choose objectives and obsessions for their characters, and the GM uses these choices to drive the plot. The GM also plays the character's adversaries, allies, and other people who inhabit this world of cosmic horror.
