A Fear Within is a roleplaying game where players take on the roles of both children and the monsters that live inside them.
These are not metaphorical monsters or fears. These are literal, powerful creatures that live inside the children and want to be unleashed upon the world. They are called Entities.
The Children and Entities are forced to work together to face The Fear, a dark power that threatens the world of human and monster alike.
Players work in pairs, and although they come from different worlds their relationship is essential to achieving their goals and saving all of existence.
