You have known since birth that one day your shift would come. Each season, a guard to keep it bound. Each guard, to ensure the door never opened. You were excited to test yourself and knew to heed your elders’ warnings. Do not listen to its honeyed words. Do not speak lest you reveal your own weakness. But the winter is long and dark and you are so alone. And the voice from behind the door almost feels like home… The Winter Guard is a journaling or solo role-playing game that uses the Second Guess system created by William Lentz.
