Spireholm provides the perfect sandbox setting for you to create your own stories in and this book also contains a huge 10 part story to play through as well as monsters, items, and NPCs. Fight your way through ghoul infested abandoned buildings, sleuth out a murder mystery, pull off a grand heist and fight werewolves, vampires, and monsters galore in this most Gothic of setting and story.

The city of Spireholm is different of late. Strange folk are abroad, disappearances go unexplained, and a sombre mood descends upon the populous. A high profile murder brings an unlikely group of individuals together to investigate. What they uncover, will change them all forever. The story of Spireholm is a massive multi-chapter story for the SHIVER RPG exploring the city and doing battle with evil within its walls.
