Handful of Dust
a supernatural + horror + western + apocalyptic roleplay
The world ended on a Sunday. April 28th, 2013, to be exact. No one expected it, no one had a chance to fight against it. Some called it the End of Days, the Apocalypse, Ragnarok. Some called it the beginning.

There is shadow under this red rock, (come in under the shadow of this red rock) and I will show you something different from either your shadow at morning striding behind you or your shadow at evening rising to meet you; I will show you fear in a handful of dust. t.s.eliot

ANNOUNCING MINI EVENT: EASTER RISING

Location: Quantico Marine Base, VA
Event: Mini Event
Time: Sunday, April 20th

Sunday starts unusually dark and overcast, with an ominous feeling hanging in the air. It becomes apparent why when the corpses the group has already buried and put to rest start to rise from their grave. On one side of the wall is a group of freshly risen dead, and on the other stand men with guns and the magi with a necromancer’s power that’s brought them back. It’s the group’s job to try and survive it.
