In our session zero, we discuss the game, what to expect, and what we want from our play. We also build our characters and the ties that link them together in the tight social circle of the Peak District in rural Derbyshire. Nathaniel Gracefield is the heir to the disgraced Gracefield family, with more than a little scandal in his own past. His sister, the long-suffering Eva, labours to try and drag the family name out of the muck, and secretly speculates she would make a better head of the family than her brother. Young Abigail Nash is an orphaned girl being brought up in the aristocratic family of her uncle, seeking revenge on Eva who she holds at least partially responsible for the fate that met her family. Marwood Lempster - more than just an old friend of Nathaniel - has recently returned from the continent, plagued by rumours he has been initiated into a sinister secret society. And Isaac Arkwright, son of a prosperous Salford mill-owner, is on the lookout for an eligible wife who would help his family achieve the social status their money alone cannot buy.

South Beach seems like its all fun and games, but will those demons stay in line?
