Vasilisa must scour the land for the seven seals of the black book, solving the problems of the common folk by fighting monsters and exorcising demons. Featuring card-based game mechanics, character progression, and a world steeped in Slavic folklore, Black Book is dark, macabre, and deeply haunting in ways other RPGs are not.
