Sticks and Stones may break my bones...

                                                                   ...but Malice will condemn me.


Sticks and Stones is a one-shot story for the horror rpg Locus. It is the first official story for the Locus horror rpg produced by CobblePath Games.

1873 - fifteen years ago - the prestigious Latterdyne family disappeared. Ever since, their lands have stood empty and the woods have been avoided by the locals. Talk of the town was that the family vanished in the woods during a storm after befalling a terrible accident, although the whispers since have been mingled with theories and suspicions as to the specifics. Stories of hikers and other travellers going missing are oft added to the rumours: some dismiss this as mere embellishment, though others swear blind it is the truth. 

Now these rumours have made their way to the Society for Psychical Research which has duly dispatched a group of investigators to the woods. What they find there will shake them to the core; in a forest filled with dolls that appear to watch them, they will be stalked by their own pasts. 


The Sticks and Stones story for Locus contains the following:

  • Player brief & pre-made character archetypes
  • Location guide for the Director
  • Mysteries and clues for the story
  • Spot effects & set pieces 
  • Director plot guide including starting script & endings
  • Pre-made monsters
  • Pre-made items

 All tied together with moody photography and manipulated photos.


Sticks and Stones requires the main Locus game to play.
