Oz: Dark & Terrible is a vision of Oz that would give L. Frank Baum nightmares. The Emerald City is a dystopian steampunk metropolis ruled by the Wizard in eternal opposition to the magicians of Oz. The Witches rule the four main realms, but whether they are Good or Wicked is entirely dependent upon your point of view. The Scarecrow is an Anidum; a creature containing a person's soul that has been transplanted into a mannequin. The Tin Woodsman is a retired member of the Wizard's "secret service", the Tin Men, who ensure the citizens of the Emerald City remain loyal to their ruler and are willing to use whatever means necessary to achieve their goals. The Cowardly Lion is a disgraced exile from his rightful kingdom after his father betrayed the other Animals in a catastrophic battle against Blinkie, the former Wicked Witch of the South, who refuses to be like other Carnivores who eat the hearts of Humans to gain lycanthropic powers. The exception is Dorothy. She never went to Oz...yet. As an Outsider, players can portray a native of Oz, be they a mutated Munchkin, tribal Quadling, or even an Automaton, a sentient clockwork machine, among dozens of other possibilities.
Do you have the courage, heart, and brains to walk this dark and terrible Yellow Brick Road to oblivion?
