The Seventh Beyond
Setealém: The Seventh Beyond is a game about staying sane in a hostile environment, stripped of all familiar comforts and using every available resource to increase your odds of survival. Despite all of this, it should be an adventure full of danger, mystery and wonder, as the characters discover the secrets of the deep forest, deal with tribes of spirits both friendly and hostile and meet and interact with creatures of local legend and folklore, adapted to your adventure by you and the players.
Setealém is a Brazilian version of the “twilight zone”. Chronicled by Luciano Milici, initially on an Orkut community (a social network that has since gone defunct), and later on his blog, the stories grew into urban legend status. There are tales in every part of the country and they are as varied as any myth, tied only by the eerie atmosphere and the name Setealém. This urban legend is the main inspiration for this game, as well as where it gets its name.
Besides drawing inspiration from myths and legends of Brazilian folklore, The Seventh Beyond also contains strong elements of classic britannian legends, Onyx Path’s Changeling: the Lost and the open source game Cataclysm: Dark Days Ahead, among others.
Setealém: The Seventh Beyond was created for the 2019’s Folklore Jam.

But now you miss home.
Maybe it’s okay to go back.
