The Midnight Codex is an episodic, one-page, tabletop role-playing series using the Omen Method (The same game system used to power Short Order Apocalypse).

In it, payers are thrust into the roles of would-be spell casters as they attempt to solve mysteries, take on nightmarish creatures, and try to prevent the world from collapsing into total chaos and its impending destruction.

Each new exciting episode is designed to be played as a one-shot story and can be played in any order you choose. However, each episode can also be chained together to advanced the overall meta-plot of the game as it unfolds each month. 

The scene at the botanical gardens revealed many secrets. One of which was the origin of the Midnight Codex. It seems that the very book you hold in your hands, the book that has granted you the power to shape the world around you - is also a device of destruction, designed by the council of shadows to spread fear and chaos.

The secret you’ve been searching for couldn’t have held a more cryptic truth. You begin to doubt yourself as the questions begin to race through your mind. “Am I really responsible for all the horrible events of the past few weeks?”. “Did I really play into their hands like a puppet so easily manipulated?”

One thing’s for certain, whoever’s behind all of this, didn’t count on you being able to uncover the truth. More or less, to have the conviction and resources to actually do something about it. You look out the window as the first snow begins to fall. As you peer into the distance you a see slender figure watching your every move.
