The comedy of sex, magick, and power tools continues…
After only a few weeks in Arcanum. Ohio, Marc Sindri finds himself in love with Brenwyn, the witch; hospitalized by Jeremiah Stone’s sex-conjured demon; and woefully behind in his construction deadlines to open the new Renaissance faire by May first. Moving in with Brenwyn for protection from further supernatural attacks during his rehabilitation, Marc delegates the work on Arcanum Faire to his minions: Eleazar, the ren faire libertine, and Michael, the overwrought artisan.
The path to the faire’s opening day is not smooth, obstructed by invisible tentacle demons, undead skinless bunnies, and interference from OSHA and even the Vatican; but Marc slowly recovers. With luck, he will soon be healthy enough to lift a chainsaw or survive sex. Through a vegan Thanksgiving, a tool-bedecked Christmas, and lovers’ spats with a woman who can throw lightning bolts, Marc makes his way mostly unscathed.
If only his semi-erotic dream about hedge trimmers and a sacred grove didn’t end up leaking into Brenwyn’s sleeping mind.
Contest: Get Killed By Jason in Friday the 13th: Killer Puzzle!
Have you ever thought to yourself that you’d be over the moon if you could get killed off by Jason Voorhees? Of course I’m not talking about real life but rather you’d get to play a victim of the infamous Camp Crystal Lake slasher?

To see what this might look like for you, check out our own Uncle Creepy, who was turned into an avatar in the game! Then, come on back here, head down below, and fill out the form to enter!
Friday the 13th: Killer Puzzle is on track to be released as a free mobile game in early 2018. There are rumblings that it may even come to consoles, but nothing is confirmed as of yet.

The time of sex, magick, and power tools is coming to an end. In spite of the worst legal, economic, and metaphysical efforts of Jeremiah Stone and his surviving family, it is almost opening day at Arcanum Faire. Marc Sindri wields his shovel and noumena against all comers as the witch Brenwyn explores the concept of non-accidental sex magick.
Construction workers, witches, and minions on all sides deal with all the most fearful things in Arcanum, Ohio: reanimated road-kill, raging queens, pike-wielding re-enactors, meat puppets, a Wiccan non-witch, and Eleazar’s terrifying encounter with monogamy.
And there’s always the question of the second anvil.
