Suburban Consumption of the Monstrous


Your home aches with a dull familiarity, the creaking floors and secrets in dark corners mundane without ever being rendered comfortable. There are many things you don’t say, so many urges that aren’t sated.

Suburban Consumption of the Monstrous is an anthology of horror live action roleplaying games set in suburbia with themes of food and consumption written by game designer Banana Chan (Jiangshi: Blood in the Banquet Hall, Betrayal at House on the Hill 3rd Edition), and designer and illustrator Sadia Bies (Event Horizon LARP, The Sky Left Us). It delves into the twisted terrors that lie behind a seemingly normal suburban setting. In the collection, there are solo games, games for two player, games for three players, games for four players and games for higher play counts.

Featuring solo games as well as larps for up to and more than four players, the tone of Suburban Consumption of the Monstrous ranges from dark comedy to cosmic and existential horror, with plenty of unhealthy family dynamics, and feeling trapped in ordinary homes turned sinister houses of horror.
