Souls of the Gulf is a modern rural fantasy Role Playing Game set in Texas and Louisiana during the 1990’s. The tales and legends you will create are a combination of southern gothic and western themes, as well as experiences of isolation, other-ness, queerness, and social disconnection.
You play the tragic role of an Animate – a magickal entity trying to survive and find balance in their existence. Alteration of the land and water around the Gulf of Mexico is thinning the metaphysical barrier between our world and beyond, causing magick to seep through at disturbing rates. Animates can use the elemental power flowing from the Gulf in a 3-part combination with the caster’s emotions and intent to create astounding effects. However, transmuting magick exposes you to the other supernatural beings in the area, who are typically far more powerful and hungry than you are.
