Bring tales of the mysterious, the peculiar and the strange to life. An easy to learn and innovative game system inspired by a love of horror films and pulp TV shows that brings storytelling to the fore. Shiver makes it simple for you to tell the stories you want to tell, however weird and wonderful they may be.

  • 224 Full Colour pages packed with illustration in a Hardcover binding.
  • Highly detailed character creation for any setting
  • An easy to use character sheet
  • Monsters and enemies galore to slay or do some slaying.
  • Full Doom Clock rules to keep your story moving and raise that tension.
