A downloadable tarot RPG

Pulse and Pressure is a rules-light buisness card sized RPG about players desperately trying the keep their cool in a horrifing situation.  Adding to the suspense is a deck of tarot cards that can reveal lucky breaks . . . or spell the characters' doom.  And as you run from the monsters beware of the Ten of Swords, for in your midst may be a traitor .  .  .

Designed to be played with  no prep time and to have a story organically develop with from plot twists provided from both the GM and the players.  Four tarot cards have specific gameplay mechanics attached to them.  As the deck gets smaller the players will know The Devil or The Ten of Swords is drawing near for them which will result in the party turning against each other.  

CW: Monsters,  death,  fear and the supernatural.
