During a hellish thunderstorm, on the stroke of midnight, there echoes a bone-chilling scream. The townsfolk rush to investigate and find the town storyteller murdered, their body impaled on the hands of the clocktower, blood dripping onto the cobblestones below. A demon walks amongst you…

Blood on the Clocktower comes to Proud Lion! We’re inviting six to twelve players to gather information, trade knowledge, spread lies, and discover the who is on the side of Evil.
