The Esoterrorists is modern day conspiracy setting for Pelgrane Press’ GUMSHOE system. Updated with a 2nd edition in 2013, this game brings conspiracy horror into investigative focus, with an emphasis of not only tracking down the Esoterrorist threat (and their Outer Dark Entity monsters), but also protecting humanity from the reality of its own insignificance.

The Esoterrorists utilises the (and in fact was the first) GUMSHOE system.
